Bon Iver is kicking-off an 8 city tour starting on 3/27 with back to back evenings at The Met in Philadelphia. Justin Vernon and company will also hit Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, and finish the short run in Detroit. As one of the 8 lucky cities, Cincinnati will host the Grammy winners for a sold-out performance at the Taft Theatre on Sunday 3/31.
Although their most recent full-length release, “22, A Million”, first graced our ears back in 2016, Vernon is constantly creating. He recently collaborated with St. Paul, MN contemporary dance troupe, TU Dance, and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra to compose the score for a work entitled “Come Through”, as well as putting out his debut album with The National's Aaron Desner under the moniker Big Red Machine and starting the PEOPLE collective; an online service where artists can freely share their work with each other and others. There is a chance we could hear select pieces from "Come Through" sprinkled in among selections from Bon Iver’s three full length studio albums as well as the beloved “Blood Bank” EP which turns 10 years old this year. No matter the set list, we are in for a moving and unforgettable evening of music from one of the greatest known songwriters of our time.
Taft Theatre announced that the performance was sold out after just over 2 hours. If you weren’t able to snag tickets, we’ve got you covered for a pair over on our contest tab!
