Bright Eyes have chosen to delay their highly anticipated reunion tour, due to the ongoing global covid-19 pandemic.
Due to kick off on May 14 in Spokane, Washington, Conor Oberst and co. have instead decided to cancel all of their upcoming May gigs, alongside three June dates. Refunds will be available to ticket holders at the original point of purchase. However, the band were able to reschedule three dates for late July, whilst also adding two additional gigs, with as yet undetermined dates. Original tickets will be valid at the rescheduled dates.

Edit: All ticket holders who have purchased tickets through the AXS/Forest Hills website will receive refund information via email on May 1. An update on our US tour dates. Thank you for your patience. Regretfully, yet predictably, we have had to re-think many of our upcoming tour dates. We hope to be in a better position to gather and celebrate at a later date. Details on all USA dates are included here. A European tour update will follow soon. Existing tickets are valid for rescheduled and postponed dates. Refunds are available for all shows – cancelled or not. Refund policies on rescheduled and postponed shows vary but we can say for certain that refunds will be offered for at least 30 days. Please enquire at the point of purchase. Take care of yourselves. Take care of each other. Hope to see you on the road.

Bright Eyes announced their return back in January, quickly following that announcement with news of a new recording contract with Dead Oceans, and their first album since 2011. The band has shared two new songs, Forced Convalescence and Persona Non Grata.
