Bon Iver Announces U.S. Spring Tour
Bon Iver may not be performing at the Grammys, but the indie-folk group will be performing for fans this spring. Fresh off their "Saturday Night Live" spot last week, Justin Vernon and co. have announced a short run of April tour dates surrounding Coachella. The eight-date tour kicks off April 12 in Las Vegas and finishes up at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 27, stopping throughout California and Arizona along the way.
The band, up for four Grammys at this Sunday's awards, will appear at Coachella on April 14 and 21, and will also be at the Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Wash. on May 27. All Tiny Creatures will support Bon Iver on the non-festival tour dates. The April U.S. run will follow the band's previously-announced tour through Australia and New Zealand in March.
The band's frontman, Justin Vernon, recently hinted that a collaboration with Alicia Keys could be on the horizon, though a follow-up to 2011's critically-acclaimed self-titled effort could be year in the making.
