Bon Iver have announced their TU Dance Come Through shows have been cancelled after the company co-artistic director Uri Sands resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations.

On Tuesday (31 January), the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that TU Dance co-founder Uri Sands had resigned after a former employee accused him of sexual misconduct and negligent supervision.

The lawsuit was filed in October. His lawyer, Sara McGrane, said that Sands did have a sexual relationship with a former employee, but denies the "sexual misconduct".

Sands' wife Toni Pierce-Sands, who is also a co-founder of TU Dance, will continue to lead the company.

In 2018, Bon Iver teamed up with TU Dance for a series of unique shows called Come Through. Today, the band have announced the cancellation of their Come Through show collaboration.

Bon Iver wrote on Twitter, "Due to circumstances outside our control, all upcoming performances of Come Through have been cancelled. These decisions are never taken lightly by the Bon Iver team; our deepest apologies to fans who’ll miss out on these performances. Bon Iver will be back to your area soon."

Bon Iver released their latest album i,i last year. They'll play London's SSE Arena on 26 April. Find out more.
