Bright Eyes Announce 2011 Tour

Conor Oberst has finally decided to resurrect his main band Bright Eyes after taking a more than two year break from the project to concentrate on his other groups Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band and Monsters of Folk. Bright Eyes announced yesterday that they will be playing several shows across North America’s East Coast in March and a gig at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall in June. The tour will be in support of the band’s new album The People’s Key, which is set to be released by Saddle Creek on February 15 in the U.S. and February 14 in the UK.
