Bon Iver to Play Special Sunrise Concert at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery this September

Bon Iver announced that the band will perform for fans (and whatever zombies are lurking) in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, CA at dawn on Sunday, 9/27. Tickets are onsale now.

With all the clubs in LA he's playing a cemetery...At the very least, it's different. Will there be a comparable show done for east coasters at Woodlawn we wonder?

Bon Iver will perform a concert on Sunday, September 27th, 2009 as morning dawns over graves of silver screen legends at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, California.

The gates will open at midnight on Saturday night with the performance to commence at 6am on Sunday. Tickets are $25 and include a coffee and pastry breakfast. We encourage fans to bundle up (bring your blankets, too) and expect that various entertainment will be presented to them leading up to the big show.

Limited tickets are available here.

Hollywood Forever is located at 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard. Hollywood Forever Cemetery, in addition to being the beautiful resting place for hundreds of Hollywood's defining artists (including Cecil B. DeMille, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, Jayne Mansfield and the venerable Estelle Getty), is becoming a cultural center for the arts with a popular outdoor summer film series, the annual Dia de los Muertos festival and musical performances at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge.
