Bright Eyes announce UK and Ireland live dates as part of 2020 world tour

The band's nine-year hiatus is finally coming to an end

Bright Eyes have announced a run of UK and Ireland live dates as part of their 2020 world tour.

The three-piece — Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott — have re-grouped for the new decade, with the band having reunited last year to begin working on new material (which is set to be their first since 2011’s ‘The People’s Key’ LP) and signing a new record deal.

After previously announcing a slot at End of the Road Festival, Bright Eyes have today (February 18) confirmed details of a world tour which includes extra UK and Ireland dates in September — you can see those below.
