Bon Iver Cancels Shows With Dance Company Amid Co-Founder’s Sexual Harassment Accusations


Bon Iverhas canceled a series of performances with the TU Dance company amid sexual harassment accusations aimed at its co-founder, Uri Sands.

Bon Iver and TU Dance premiered their collaboration Come Through in 2018, featuring versions of several songs from the band’s recent album i,i, and have performed it at a number of venues in the past few months. The canceled performances include ones in Houston, Nashville and New Orleans in February.

Bon Iver took to Twitter on Friday (Jan. 3) to announce the news.”These decisions are never taken lightly by the Bon Iver team; our deepest apologies to fans who’ll miss out on these performances,” the band wrote. “Bon Iver will be back to your area soon.”

The statement went on to note that all tickets will be refunded.

On New Year’s Eve, Sands resigned as TU Dance’s artistic co-director following a lawsuit from a former troupe member accusing the choreographer of sexual misconduct between 2015 and 2017, according to the Star Tribune. Sands denied the claims.
