    Bright Eyes were scheduled to kick off their highly anticipated reunion tour next month. However, a number of those dates have now been changed in light of the ongoing pandemic.

    In a statement on Twitter on Friday, Bright Eyes detailed how their entire North American leg has been impacted. A majority of shows have been been canceled outright, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Tacoma, and Spokane.

    Others, meanwhile, have been already successfully rescheduled, such as their gigs in Worcester, Massachusetts; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; and Queens, New York. These three now take place in July 2021 and will feature support from Lucy Dacus and Japanese Breakfast. The two remaining shows on the itinerary — in Portland, Maine and New Haven — have been postponed as of now.

    “Regretfully, yet predictably, we have had to re-think many of our upcoming tour dates,” the band tweeted. “We hope to be in a better position to gather and celebrate at a later date.”

    “Regarding all US tour dates: existing tickets are valid for rescheduled and postponed dates. Refunds are available for all shows — cancelled or not,” Conor Oberst & co. continued. “Refund policies on rescheduled and postponed shows vary, but refunds will be offered for at least 30 days for all shows. Please enquire at the point of purchase.”

    This tour was supposed to be the indie group’s first such trek in nine years, coming ahead of an as-yet-untitled comeback album. An update on the European part of the world tour, originally planned for August, is expected to follow soon.
