Bon Iver reschedule UK and European tour until 2021

Bon Iver have announced details of their rescheduled UK and European tour which has been postponed due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease was first officially identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei in China. As of March 26th, more than 478,341 cases of COVID-19 have been officially confirmed but the actual number is thought to be much higher due to substantial under-reporting of cases.

With more than 21,524 people having died from the virus, COVID-19 has now spread into more than 180 other countries—including mainland Europe, South America and North America. Given the exponential growth in cases in countries like Italy, Spain and the UK, the WHO have now stated that Europe was the current centre of the pandemic.

Justin Vernon and co. were due to begin the European leg of their i,i tour at the Altice Arena in Lisbon on April 15th but have been forced to reschedule the run of dates which includes shows at Manchester Arena as well as Wembley Arena until 2021. All original tickets will remain valid for the newly announced dates.

Unfortunately, they couldn’t manage to reschedule the Birmingham stop of the tour with refunds being made available at the point of purchase. They are also currently working on finding suitable dates to rearrange the Amsterdam and Lisbon shows for.

“It is with great care and empathy to all involved that we announce the rescheduling of the below tour dates in Europe and the UK to January 2021,” the group said with the tour statement.
