Justin Vernon is bringing his much-beloved Bon Iver project to Cincinnati in 2022.

The band just announced they'll be hitting the road for a 23-date U.S. tour, starting in March. A release says this will be Bon Iver's "first run of live shows since selling out arenas like Barclays Center on the heels of their acclaimed 2019 album, i,i."

The tour kicks off in Arizona, with supporting acts Dijon and Bonny Light Horsemen.

Artist presale tickets go live October 27 at and go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. October 29 at and

Justin Vernon, Sean Carey, Jenn Wasner, Mike Lewis, Matt McCaughan and Andy Fitzpatrick will make up the band on this upcoming jaunt after playing together in Los Angeles this past weekend for Bon Iver's 10th anniversary. 

According to the release, the band "will continue to offer growing audiences even greater moments of gratitude, gathering in celebration of community and togetherness; an opportunity for healing and reflection on the path towards a brighter future."

The band is partnering with different nonprofits on the tour and with Bon Iver's 2 A Billion campaign, which raises support, awareness, and connection to help end gender inequality, domestic violence and sexual abuse. 

The Bon Iver 10th Anniversary Edition drops on March 25, 2022, featuring "five songs from Justin Vernon and Sean Carey's AIR Studios session, a blind embossed version of the original cover art, and a personal essay from long-time fan Phoebe Bridgers."

Vernon has also recently collaborated with Cincinnati-bred Aaron Dessner of The National for a new project titled Big Red Machine (yes, named after the Reds). They dropped their second album in August 2021.

Watch Dessner perform their song "The Ghost of Cincinnati" on The Late Show, Starring Jimmy Fallon.

And remember the song that made every Indie heart fall in love with Bon Iver in the first place.
