Bright Eyes Set Late Winter Tour In Anticipation Of Seventh Studio Album

Bright Eyes' seventh studio album, The People's Key, drops on February 15 and the trio of Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott (joined by four touring musicians) has set a slew of late winter tour dates, including a second date at New York's Radio City Music Hall on March 8. The first RCMH date, on March 9, has already sold out. Superchunk and Wild Flag will support Bright Eyes for both of those shows.

The tour, which supports the band's upcoming record which is due out on Saddle Creek, is Bright Eyes' first in three years. The album was recorded in Omaha, Nebraska at ARC Studios and produced by Mogis, whose long and illustrious list of production credits includes albums by Julian Casablancas, Jenny and Johnny, and Mogis' Monsters of Folk bandmate M. Ward.

Pre-sale for some of the shows begins on Wednesday, December 15 with tickets on sale to the general public on Friday, December 17. Oberst has provided handy details on his own website.
