Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band Add More Tour Dates; Pre-sale tickets

With his latest solo album Conor Oberst entering the Billboard Album Charts last month at #15, the 28 year old Bright Eyes frontman has already charmed fans from Los Angeles to New York City with a slew of impressive club shows. His stellar band of musician friends, known as The Mystic Valley Band, are the very same who played on the much lauded “solo” album. Currently in Europe where they recently performed at the Reading/Leeds festival among other major music events, we are delighted to announce a run of dates that will kick off in Honolulu in October and take us through to late November in New Orleans. The addition of Jenny Lewis and M.Ward to some of these dates makes this tour additionally special.

Check out first video from the album, “Souled Out” here:

Conor’s songs are “jaunty or sorrowful, bruised or optimistic, and often all at once.” Jon Pareles of The New York Times

“Oberst resists the safety of self-deprecation, allowing his eloquent, smartly arranged folk-rock to speak for themselves.” Time Out New York
The album “is a reminder of the depth he’s capable of.” Billboard

“Even with gas at more than four bucks a gallon, Oberst makes the myth as seductive as ever.” Rolling Stone
