After years and years of being passed over, Alberta is finally going to get its Bon Iver on!
A new tour was announced today for the recent double Grammy winner and Justin Vernon will be making his first ever Calgary stop, which is fitting since Calgary is the name of one the songs on his recent self-titled album. Oddly enough, major cities like Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal were left off the tour roster, but maybe this tour is about exploring newer cities.
Here are the three Canadian tour dates:
05/21/12 Edmonton, AB – Northern Alberta Jubilee
05/22/12 Calgary, AB – MacEwan Hall
05/25/12 Burnaby, BC – Deer Lake Park
No date yet has been announced for when tickets go on sale, but expect them to go fast.Â If I find out when the box office opens up, I’ll let you know….maybe after I get my tickets.
