    Bon Iver are coming out with a new live show entitled "Cercle." The special four night concert event will take place May 27-30, and is described as, "a unique retrospective concert experience in-the-round."

    This will be the eighth year of Vivid Live. "Originating with Brian Eno's Luminous festival in 2009, Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House has been curated by the late Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, Modular Recordings founder Stephen Pavlovic and Fergus Linehan. Now entering its second year under Sydney Opera House's Head of Contemporary Music Ben Marshall, previous Vivid LIVE highlights include residencies from The Cure, Yeah Yeah Yeahs front-woman Karen O and Kraftwerk through to performances from Lauryn Hill, St. Vincent and Morrissey," according to the company website.

    This year, ANOHNI, Oneohtrix Point Never, New Order, Esperanza Spalding, Deafheaven, Max Richter's eight-hour composition Sleep, Poliça, and more will be performing during the Vivid Live series at the Sydney Opera House as well. The series begins May 27th and runs through June 13th.

    Justin Vernon recently announced that he is working on new Bon Iver music, but there is no news on when a new album may be coming out. Bon Iver will also be curating Eaux Claires Music Festival, which is curated by Vernon and The National's Aaron Dessner. The festival takes places August 12-13 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
