Nebraska wunderkind Conor Oberst is taking Bright Eyes on the road for what’s billed as An Evening of Solo & Collaborative Performances Featuring Bright Eyes, Jim James (Of My Morning Jacket), and M. Ward.
The three singer/songwriters mounted a tour under the same name in February. Each performer does a solo set, but all three are on stage throughout most of the show, contributing instrumentation and vocals to one another’s songs.
The jaunt runs from October 8-19, beginning in Fort Worth, Texas at the Ridglea Theatre. The tour runs up the West Coast and wraps in Vancouver, B.C.
M. Ward has several appearances scheduled prior to the tour, including the Merge Records 15th Anniversary Festival July 29 in Carrboro, N.C.
James is currently on the European festival circuit with My Morning Jacket. He’ll appear solo at the Gram Parsons tribute shows in Southern California July 9-10.
