Bon Iver

SELECTIVE MEMORY PRESENTS

BON IVER

+ Aaron Dessner’s Big 37do3d Machine

3ARENA, DUBLIN

FRIDAY 29th OCTOBER 2021

The BON IVER tour has been rescheduled and the new date for Dublin is FRIDAY 29th October 2021. There are a very limited number of production holds still available for Bon Iver’s headline show at 3Arena – which will be their first headline show in Dublin in 9 years. All tickets bought for the original date remain valid for the new date.

Tickets for Bon Iver’s Dublin show cost EU49.50 standing or EU54.50 seated are on sale from Ticketmaster and www.selectivememory.ie

Support on this show comes from Aaron Dessner’s Big 37d03d Machine who will develop and perform new music in collaboration with 37d03d friends.  Aaron Dessner is of course best-known as one of the leading members of The National amongst other projects.

Another familiar name joined Bon Iver on their latest single release ‘AUATC’ as Bruce Springsteen joins Bon Iver on vocals. Listen to ‘AUATC’ here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DusRnF36UA

This show will be the American indie-folk heroes first indoor show in Dublin in some 9 years – when they finished up a world tour with a now-legendary sold-out show at the same venue, from where frontman Justin Vernon announced to the crowd a global hiatus, one that ended up lasting five years.

Presented by Selective Memory, this Dublin show comes as part of the European wide tour following the release of Bon Iver’s widely-acclaimed fourth album i,i. Bon Iver’s previous albums have won several Grammys and Brit Awards, amongst other accolades.

“Listen closely and you can hear the language of pop being redrafted in real time”
