Bon Iver Asia Tour 2016

When I knew that Bon Iver would perform in Asia including Singapore, the only seats that were left were those in the outermost circle of The Star Performing Arts Theatre. I asked A to come with me and we planned a little getaway. So we bought the tickets, the cheapest ones, because we knew it wouldn’t be wild-o-everybody-sings-along kind of concert. We thought we could even just sit and close our eyes. Fortunately, we were right (except that I didn’t really close our eyes and enjoyed the lighting). Fortunately, they were really really awesome. They played the favorites of For Emma, Forever Ago (2007) and Bon Iver, Blood Bank (2009), and Bon Iver, Bon Iver (2011). The only song I hoped they’d play but they didn’t was ‘Wisconsin’. However, they played Roslyn, even without St. Vincent. Beautiful. :’)


California is a great big nation of one They never knew what they wanted till it was already gone What do they do with the light in the morning when they wake up alone? They just go home They just go home You’re the nicest, nicest boy I’ve ever met, and then I think about you, then I think about you again And again Why don’t we just sit and stare and do nothing? Nothing at all for a while I like the way you smile (She & Him)
