Bon Iver announces summer tourdates, promises to bring an inflatable pool and Slip-N-Slide to each show

When you’re playing the biggest venues you’ve ever played as a victory lap from collaborating with Kanye West, it’s only fitting that you do it up as big as possible on your upcoming tour. Especially if said tour occurs in the summer when everyone is generally in a good mood. To celebrate his success into the upper echelon of indie rock stardom, Justin Vernon a.k.a. Bon Iver will not only be performing with an eight-piece band, but he’ll be bringing along an inflatable swimming pool AND a Slip-N-Slide to every show. Yes, even if you’re seeing him in some old theater that was built in 1903, it doesn’t matter. Word has it that Vernon even bought new swim trunks for the occasion. Dude is about to get wild and crazy this summer. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. His new album Bon Iver, Bon Iver will be out just in time on June 21, via Jagjaguwar.
