A message shared today by Bon Iver announced the cancellation of the band’s pending European Tour. The statement also confirmed the cancellation of frontman Justin Vernon’s upcoming appearance on A Prairie Home Companion.
A message posted to the Bon Iver Twitter account cited “personal reasons” as the cause for the scrapping of the tour set to start January 22 in Paris and conclude on February 20 in London. Refunds are available for those who purchased tickets, no make up dates are currently in the works.
Vernon was slated to appear with host Chris Thile on the public radio program A Prairie Home Companion on January 14. The live broadcast was set to take place at the Symphony Center in Chicago.
