SELECTIVE MEMORY PRESENTS
First show in Dublin in 18 years
Vicar St – Wednesday 1st September
Bright Eyes are back. This will be their first show in Dublin in 18 years. After a 9 year hiatus, Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott, have re-grouped to record and tour in 2020. The beloved band, whose previous nine albums are some of the most lauded and influential records of a generation, last released a new LP, The People’s Key, in 2011 followed by a remastered box set collection of their work in 2016. But, in 2019, the acclaimed trio returned to the studio to quietly begin work on new material.
‘Part of what makes Bright Eyes so exciting is Oberst’s obviously passionate belief in the ability of songs to communicate ideas…. is gloriously wordy, more scathing and verbose even than early Dylan.’ The Guardian
