The date is part of a huge European tour which will see the Justin Vernon-lead act play several UK gigs, as well as dates in Spain, Germany, Belgium and Ireland.

The band recently released their fourth studio album i,i, the follow-up to 2016’s electronica-tinged 22, A Million – a far cry from the band’s earlier stripped-back acoustic sound. Recorded mostly at Sonic Ranch in Texas, i,i finds Bon Iver in a calmed creative state that is channeled into the heart of each of the album’s 13 songs.

The core band for the i,i sessions included Sean Carey, Andrew Fitzpatrick, Mike Lewis, Matt McCaughan, and Justin Vernon with Rob Moose and Jenn Wasner, plus contributions from James Blake, Brad and Phil Cook, Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Bruce Hornsby, Channy Leaneagh, Naeem Juwan, Velvet Negroni, Marta Salogni, Francis Starlite, Moses Sumney, TU Dance, and many others.

26 – London, SSE Arena Wembley
