Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver have announced a one-off headline date with Patti Smith at California’s Hollywood Bowl.

The show will take place on October 23, with Patti Smith & Her Band and Hiss Golden Messenger also on the bill. The show marks Bon Iver’s first headline gig in America since the band’s appearances at the 2015 Eaux Claires Festival in Wisconsin.

This follows the band’s brief string of Asian dates, as well as four acoustic performances at the Sydney Opera House’s VIVID Live series. You can watch professionally shot footage of “Michicant”, “Heavenly Father”, and “Creature Fear” from these gigs below.


After announcing the news and details of a presale on Instagram, the band’s newly designed website seemed to crash with demand. The band tweeted: “sorry for any technical issues but everything is up and working now”.

Patti Smith, meanwhile, is currently on a world tour, performing her 1975 album Horses in full. On July 1, she will bring the performance to London’s British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.
