Bright Eyes were set to mount a comeback year in 2020 with the release of the band’s first new album in nine years and an associated tour. One of those goals was achieved for the Conor Oberst-led trio, but unfortunately not the other.

Now, nearly ten months after the release of Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, Bright Eyes fans will finally get the tour they were owed.
