Bright Eyes Announce Additional Tour Dates

With just a week to go until the eagerly awaited release of Bright Eyes’ seventh studio album, The People’s Key (out February 15th on Saddle Creek), the celebrated Nebraskan band have added further dates to what will be their first US tour in over three years. Additional supporters have also been confirmed, Titus Andronicus, Jenny And Johnny, Farmer Dave Scher, Conduits and Dawes will each be joining the band on select dates. The band is currently overseas playing a string of sold out dates in Europe and U.S. tickets are going fast!

Last week The People’s Key was premiered in full on NPR’s ‘First Listen’ HERE as well as on YouTube in their first ever online listening party HERE. The streams have been incredibly well received. Additionally, Conor Oberst will be co-hosting Sirius XMU every afternoon this week at 5pm with Rolling Stone critic and XMU host Jenny Eliscu – yet another chance for fans to hear tracks from The People’s Key prior to release as well as old favorites from the Bright Eyes catalog and Conor’s own personal selections.

Since 2006 the once revolving cast of Bright Eyes players has settled around permanent members Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott with an array of talented musicians joining them in the studio and on tour. The 7-piece band will be kicking off this tour in Miami in March before taking in the South, the East Coast, the Midwest, Texas, Canada and the West Coast.
