Bon Iver Tickets for Sale
Bon Iver tickets are concert tickets to enjoy the indie folk group as they tours in 2011 to promote their new, self-titled sophomore album. Bon Iver tour dates are taking them across the country to entertain audiences with their second, critically acclaimed effort. The soft singing folk artists have earned rave reviews for their second album and their fans across the country are quickly selling out arenas to see them perform live on stage.
Bon Iver concert tickets have been around since 2007, as the project undertaken by folk singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. He recruited Sean Carey and Matthew McCaughan to play with him on stage. The trio became a standard four-piece band with the addition of Michael Noyce, who Vernon had taught guitar when he was in high school. This Eau Claire, Wisconsin band quickly emerged on the indie rock scene. Now Bon Iver has played Lollapalooza in 2009 and at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Way Out West, and the Sasquatch! music festival.
Bon Iver's story goes farther back than this 2007 meeting. Justin Vernon moved back to Wisconsin after he had left the band DeYarmond Edison and a ended his relationship in Raleigh, North Carolina (and endured a battle with mononucleosis). He stayed in his father's cabin in the woods in northern Wisconsin and watched Northern Exposure on DVD. It was one particular episode that inspired the name for the group, one in which the town people were greeting each other "bon hiver". A poor transcription later, Vernon had discovered the name for his new band.
That band, Bon Ivor, released its first album, For Emma, Forever Ago, on February 19, 2008 and went gold in Australia, the UK, and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. Bon Ivor's album reached number 64 on the Billboard 200 and had three singles: "Skinny Love", For Emma", and "re: Stacks". The reception was almost universally positive. This album set the tone for the 2009 Blood Bank EP and the second album, a beautifully melancholy that can take the audience through the full range of human emotions.
