Los Angeles music fans were thrilled to get back to concert-going and see the band Bon Iver perform at YouTube Theater. These were the first live shows the band had performed in almost two years.

Bringing the fans together for the concert experience after months of the Covid pandemic was a surreal feeling. “There’s nothing strange about this at all,” remarked Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon onstage. “We love you very much. Thanks for joining us. I don’t know what to say — there’s nothing to f* say. Just mucho, mucho appreciation.”

The October 22-23rd shows were an immersive sound experience designed by L-Acoustics, which uses L-ISA technology. This is a new way to experience sound in ultra-high-resolution spatial audio, combined with accurate sound placement to bring unprecedented vibrancy and clarity to live music.

The incredible acoustics was the perfect fit for Bon Iver’s impressive setlist, which celebrated the 10-year milestone of the band’s self-titled album.

“I’m going to tell you, it’s been a week of celebrating," enthused Vernon. "We’ve just been sitting around celebrating all day, every day! But we really do appreciate it. That album is only 10 songs so we’re going to play a bunch of other songs, too.”

Music fan Samantha Allen was thrilled with the sound quality.

"I really felt like I was part of the music--Bon Iver sounded incredible. It definitely felt like the band had a deeper connection with the audience."

Earlier in the evening, L-Acoustics invited press to go on a group tour of the brand new Sofi Stadium, which is adjacent to the Theatre.

"We were taken to an upper level to get a birdseye view of the field and then down to see the field. I loved seeing the VIP boxes, the lounge area, the media room, and the huge modern locker room," Allen enthused.

Bon Iver just announced their return to the road with a U.S. tour that will span 23-dates. The tour will kick off on March 30th.
