Bright Eyes Reveal Run Of 2020 Tour Dates & Hint At Upcoming Music
Revered indie-rock band Bright Eyes has announced that they will embark on a world tour this year with Japanese Breakfast, Lavender Diamond and Lucy Dacus fulfilling support for the shows. Making stops in Tokyo, Los Angeles and London, the upcoming shows will be some of the group’s first live performances in over nine years.
Following a March 23 show in Japan, throughout their North American tour, Bright Eyes will make stops in Los Angeles, Portland and New Haven, among others. The run of shows will start off at Spokane, Washington’s Knitting Factory on May 14 and will run through June 20 where the band will finish off the tour's American leg at the Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY.
As for their European stint, shows will kick off on Aug. 14 at the Oya Music Festival in Oslo, Norway and will wrap up with a stop in Salisbury, United Kingdom for the End of the Road Music Festival on Sep. 6.
Although Bright Eyes has been relatively quiet since the release of their last studio album The People’s Key in 2011, early last month an Instagram post teasing new music from the band appeared on their newly launched account. The hint could be a hopeful sign that new music from the group is on the horizon, especially for fans who have waited nearly a decade for Bright Eyes’ new material.
