'Skinny Love' hitmakers Bon Iver have cancelled the UK and European leg of their 22 a million tour, citing 'personal reasons' as the cause.

The band led by the breathtaking vocals of Justin Vernon were scheduled to play two gigs at The Roundhouse, two and Eventim Apolo, and one at Britxon Academy.

They've also pulled the two dates scheduled at Edinburgh playhouse in addition to the rest of a mammoth European tour.

Justin Vernon's scheduled appearance at A Prairie Home Companion on 14 Janaury is also affected.

The dates are not planned to be rescheduled "at this time" meaning the best chance of seeing Bon Iver soon is at a festival. They are booked for a bunch, including, Spain's Primavera and Ireland's Forbidden Fruit.

This news will come as a blow to fans who were widely appreciative of Bon Iver's return with a new album in 2016 - their first since the award wining self-titled on brought out in 2011.

Apart from a one-off show in Brixton in February last year, the band haven't toured Europe since 2012. With the lack of gigs, The festival performances must be cherished.

Whilst the tour says the shows won't be rescheduled at this time, we do hope that in a few months time once the band are ready they'll be on the road in Europe soon. They do say in true Arnie style, "We'll be back".
