Today we’re happy to announce new Bon Iver tour dates along the Eastern United States, including two additional dates in New York at Radio City Music Hall. Anais Mitchell will open for most of these shows.
Much has been said of Bon Iver’s transformation into a nine-person live band. The Miami New Times in a recent live review, captures the essence of this magic particularly well: “Often, live music is an attempt to approximate something captured in a studio. As exceptional as Bon Iver’s recordings are, Bon Iver in concert is an entirely different creature. By turns defiant and pliant, pained and triumphant, with Bon Iver, the songs are not merely live but living.” Check out the full list of tour dates below.

Last night, the inaugural Libera Awards took place at New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge. Curated by the American Association of Independent Music, the awards ceremony is held to “recognize the growing support and market share for independent artists by celebrating the accomplishments of independent musicians and the independent labels and services that support them.” We’re honored to announce Jagjaguwar walked away with two Libbies: Record Label of the Year and Bon Iver won Independent Album of the Year! It’s been an exciting, if not overwhelming year for Jagjaguwar and we’re incredibly stoked for the future! Congratulations to all winners and nominees!
Great news for all Bon Iver fans! Shortly after the release of Bon Iver’s Grammy-winning album, Bon Iver, Bon Iver, the band stopped by East West Studios in West Hollywood to capture the vivid and powerful display that is Bon Iver. They spent the day putting the awe-inspiring, multi-layed dynamism of their live show to tape.
The seven timeless songs recorded that day have now been released and are available exclusively through iTunes. You can download Bon Iver’s iTunes Session HERE.
Bon Iver will head back out on tour this upcoming July! See full list of dates HERE.
