Bon Iver Announce 'For Emma, Forever Ago' Deluxe Reissue, Anniversary Show
With the official 10-year anniversary of the release of Bon Iver's hugely acclaimed self-distributed debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago, still close in the rearview mirror, the group's frontman, songwriter and overall mastermind Justin Vernon has announced the album will receive a vinyl reissue treatment in conjunction with a special one-night-only anniversary performance set for February 2018.
Billed as "For Emma, Ten Year," with the subtly mysterious tagline "A One-Of-A-Kind Smoke-Free Show," the anniversary show is slated for Feb. 17, 2018, at Milwaukee's Bradley Center.
The reissue will be available on CD and vinyl, packaged with new artwork and an essay by Vernon's frequent collaborator Trever Hagen. The reissue will be exclusively available from Bon Iver's live show merch table and via the band's official website.
