tickets go on sale this Friday

news: Tuesday 11th January 2011

Ahead of their sold out Royal Albert Hall headline on 23rd June, Bright Eyes today announced three intimate UK dates for next month.

The dates include a show at London's The Scala on 14th February, the day the band release their seventh studio album 'The People's Key'. These shows mark the first UK Bright Eyes dates since the summer of 2007 when the band appeared as a twelve-piece dressed in white at Glastonbury and played two nights at Shepherds Bush Empire.

Since 2006 the once revolving cast of Bright Eyes players has settled around permanent members Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, with additional musicians joining them in the studio and on tour.

Additional Bright Eyes players on 'The People's Key' include Andy LeMaster, (Now Its Overhead), Matt Maginn (Cursive), Carla Azar (Autolux), Clark Baechle (The Faint), Shane Aspergren (The Berg Sans Nipple), Laura Burhenn (The Mynabirds) and Denny Brewer (Refried Ice Cream).

The new Bright Eyes UK dates for February are as follows:

Tue 08 February Oran Mor, Glasgow
Wed 09 February The Rescue Rooms, Nottingham
Mon 14 February Scala (album launch show), London

Previously announced:

Thu 23 June Royal Albert Hall, London (Sold Out)

Tickets for the February dates will go on sale at 9am this Friday 14th January priced from £17.50, and eGigs will have links to buy them then.
