MILWAUKEE (October 30, 2017) – This February marks the ten year anniversary of the worldwide release of Bon Iver's magical debut, For Emma, Forever Ago. To celebrate, Justin Vernon and his band will perform at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, February 17, 2018. This special evening, dubbed FOR EMMA, TEN YEAR, will offer a salute to the songs that introduced Bon Iver to the world as never seen before. Features from guests of old and new, this one-time set cannot be missed!
“We are excited to host Bon Iver and this very special concert at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, and are thrilled that the band is coming back to Milwaukee to celebrate this truly remarkable album,” said Steve Costello, the Center’s President and CEO.
“Since the very first Bon Iver show on the For Emma, Forever Ago tour at The Pabst Theater in 2008, we knew there was a special magic and importance to this artist unlike anything we had ever seen,” said Matt Beringer, COO of the Pabst Theater Group. “We’re proud to present FOR EMMA, TEN YEAR, a completely unique opportunity to celebrate one of the most significant albums in recent history with one of the finest artists of his era.”
Bon Iver and Jagjaguwar have announced a limited edition reissue of the classic album on CD and LP featuring new artwork and a reflective in-depth essay written by longtime Bon Iver friend and collaborator, Trever Hagen. The reissue will be officially released on February 16, 2018 and available exclusively through boniver.org and at the FOR EMMA, TEN YEAR merch table.

About the BMO Harris Bradley Center
The BMO Harris Bradley Center, in Milwaukee, Wis., was built through the generosity of the late Jane Bradley Pettit in memory of her father, Harry Lynde Bradley, co-founder and chairman of the Allen-Bradley Company (now Rockwell Automation). The Center is the only major, public assembly facility in North America with construction underwritten through the philanthropy of a single family. Opened in 1988, the BMO Harris Bradley Center is home to the NBA Milwaukee Bucks and the Marquette Golden Eagles NCAA men’s basketball team. It hosts an estimated 1.5 million people each year and continues to be the No. 1 entertainment destination in Downtown Milwaukee. The Center – celebrating its 30th and final season – will close its doors for good in summer 2018 when the new Milwaukee Bucks arena opens.
