Bright Eyes will resume their reunion tour next spring. The band’s upcoming trek will see them performing songs from their most recent album, 2020’s Down in the Weeds, Where the World Once Was, and kicks off March 23 at the Palace Theatre in St. Paul, Minn. before wrapping up on April 10 at The NorVa in Norfolk, Va.

The band’s spring shows also include stops in Chicago, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and more. 

After wrapping up their North American tour dates, Bright Eyes will hit the road in Europe with stops in Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Dublin and more.

Bright Eyes announced a 2020 tour in January 2020 that was moved to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the outbreak of the Delta variant over the summer, Bright Eyes canceled the indoor shows on their rescheduled 2021 tour. 

While Bright Eyes put a hold on many of their shows over the summer, the band performed several dates in late July and early August, including a stop at Rabbit Rabbit in Asheville, N.C., on Aug. 5 that grossed $90,252, according to reports submitted to Pollstar’s Boxoffice.

Prior to their 2011 hiatus, the band toured with Kurt Vile as support. Highlights from their final 2011 shows saw the band performing at Masonic Lodge At Hollywood Forever Cemetery and grossing $105,000. 

Tickets for the band’s upcoming tour go on sale beginning Dec. 10 at 10 a.m. local time, and $1 from each purchase will be donated to the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles.
