An interesting thing about the Americana musician crowd is that there’s a huge amount of love for Bon Iver to go round. They’re not alone in that, of course. The video for iMi, received over 1.8 million views within the first 3 months of release!
13 years since Justin Vernon retreated to a cabin in Wisconsin for three months to record the debut record For Emma, Forever Ago and eight years since winning a Grammy for Best New Artist, Bon Iver plans to make up for the March 20202 dates that had to be postponed due to Coronavirus.
January 8, 2021: SSE Arena Wembley, London
January 10, 2021: Manchester Arena, Manchester
January 12, 2021: 3Arena, Dublin
January 14, 2021: First Direct Arena, Leeds
January 15, 2021: SSE Hydro, Glasgow
The tour will be supported by Aaron Dessner’s Big 37d03d Machine. That makes sense considering that Dessner from The National previously collaborated with Vernon on a project called Big Red Machine, and 37d03d is their artist’s collective which spawned a eponymous festival.
Wondering what 37d03d means? Think back to high school and turning your calculator upside down to read a secret message; it’s ‘people’!
