For a while last night it looked as though Bon Iver was due to pay a visit to Belfast later in the year, with BBC’s Across The Line announcing details of a live show for the city. It didn’t last long, however, with the following statement appearing soon after:
Guys, bad news. The gig we just announced, Bon Iver at The Waterfront Hall, is now not happening. Very unfortunate, especially as ticket information was online and everything seemed ready to go. But we’ve now been informed the gig is not going ahead. Here’s hoping Bon Iver makes it to Belfast another time and soon! Apologies to have got your hopes up.
Quite what happened is unclear, but it seems as though everything was in place for the show to go onsale this Friday but was pulled minutes after the first announcement was made.
