Bon Iver have announced a UK and Ireland arena tour for later this year.
The folk band, who are already confirmed to headline this summer’s Latitude festival, will play five arena shows in November. The dates are part of a full European tour.
The gigs kick off on November 8 at London’s Wembley Arena and run until November 10 when the band headline Dublin’s O2 Arena. They will also play dates in Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast.
Bon Iver release a new EP today (June 19). The EP, which is simply titled ‘iTunes Session EP‘, contains a total of seven tracks, all of which were recorded live. Among the tracks scheduled for release is a cover of Bjork‘s ‘Who Is It?’ and the band’s recent single ‘Holocene’.
As well as this, the band announced yesterday (June 18) that they have helped to design a sneaker for ‘cruelty free’ footwear brand Keep.
The double Grammy-winning musician has joined forces with Los Angeles based company Keep to make a ‘salmon’ pink canvas shoe, which features “herringbone accents” and “a black fishbone detail across the toe”.

London Wembley Arena (November 8)
Manchester Arena (9)
Glasgow SECC (10)
