Bon Iver has announced a new show with Patti Smith and Hiss Golden Messenger to take place later this year.

The one-off concert will take place 23 October at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl. Tickets will be on general sale from 17 June.

Bon Iver's Justin Vernon confirmed earlier this year that the project was "no longer winding down" - referencing his statement in 2012 when Bon Iver went on hiatus. Excitingly

Vernon's kept busy since the pause button was pressed on Bon Iver, working with The Staves, James Blake, Lizzo, Phil Cook, and on his Eaux Claires festival. Later this year Vernon will be debuting material at Eaux Claires:

Bon Iver's most recent album was released in 2011, but could we see more released by the end of 2016?

As well as the Hollywood Bowl show, Justin Vernon announced a show in Paris with Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, and others.

We have the distinct honor of playing the legendary @hollywoodbowl in Los Angeles on Oct. 23! Sharing the stage with us is a very special guest, Patti Smith and Her Band, along with North Carolina comrades Hiss Golden Messenger. Sign up at for access to the early fan pre-sale on Wednesday, June 15 at 10AM PST. General on sale, Friday, June 17 at 10AM PST.
