Bon Iver Axes Planned Shows With Dance Company After Co-Founder Is Accused of Sexual Harassment

Through a statement they released via Twitter, the Justin Vernon band announce that they have scrapped all upcoming performances of ‘Come Through’ set for the end of February.

AceShowbizBon Iver have scrapped a series of planned shows with Minnesota-based dance troupe TU Dance after the company’s co-founder was accused of sexual harassment.

The “Come Through” shows were set for Texas, Tennessee and Louisiana at the end of February.

“Due to circumstances outside our control, all upcoming performances of ‘Come Through’ have been cancelled,” a Twitter post reads on the band’s account. “These decisions are never taken lightly by the Bon Iver team; our deepest apologies to fans who’ll miss out on these performances. Bon Iver will be back to your area soon.”

TU Dance co-founder Uri Sands resigned from the company on 31 December (19) after a former employee accused him of sexual harassment.

An attorney for the accuser, who has not been named, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Sands “sexually exploited” his client.

Sands has admitted to being in a sexual relationship with the plaintiff but denies allegations of misconduct.
