Multiple locations
Come on, skinny love, just last the year – because in 2023, the American indie-folk band is heading Down Under for their first national tour in 12 years.

I think I’ve seen this film before, and I didn’t like the ending – back in 2019, Bon Iver announced they were touring Australia for the first time in eight years. It was supposed to happen in 2020; we all know what happened next.

Now the indie-folk band – founded by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon – have announced that they’re touring Australia for the first time in 12 years. Fingers crossed for 2023.

The group’s last national tour was in 2009, but their last Australian performance was in 2016 with four sold-out shows in Sydney for Vivid. This time around they’re playing standalone shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and festival gigs in Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.

The band’s fourth and latest album, i,i, was released in 2019 to critical acclaim. Before that, 22, A Million made its debut on a cassette tape playing in a laneway off Fitzroy’s Johnston Street in 2016, with similar stunts staged in London, Amsterdam, Paris and Brooklyn.

Pre-sale for the 2023 tour begins at 9am local time on Thursday August 25 (except for the Perth show, which starts at 12pm AWST), with general sale at 9am on Friday August 26.
