Bright Eyes are finishing what they started — their comeback tour, that is. After performing their first live sets in nearly a decade last year, the Conor Oberst-led trio are continuing the reunion fun with another leg of US tour dates in 2022.
This leg of the tour will see Bright Eyes return to some cities they missed last fall, including St. Paul, Columbus, Chicago, Nashville, Boston, and more. To make things better, the band — which also still includes longtime members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott — are partnering with Plus1 so that $1 from each ticket sold benefits the Downtown Women’s Center, which serves and empowers women experiencing homelessness in the greater Los Angeles area.
A ticket pre-sale begins Wednesday, December 8th via Ticketmaster (pre-sale code: SOCIAL), ahead of the general on-sale on Friday, December 10th.
These shows follow Bright Eyes’ last album, Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, which marked the emo/folk veterans’ first full-length release in nearly ten years.
Last summer, just ahead of their show at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium, Oberst and Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield chatted with Consequence about their creative processes and returning to touring post-pandemic. Earlier this year, Bright Eyes shared a beautiful cover of Vic Chesnutt’s “Flirted with You All My Life.”
