Bright Eyes has decided to postpone all indoor concerts on their current tour because of COVID-19. This is the band’s first tour in 10 years and had Lucy Dacus supporting. Thankfully, the band only has to postpone three cities, New York City, Atlanta, and Birmingham, due to “the complications of managing a large touring party during a pandemic.” Here is the full statement from the band:

“Due to the complications of managing a large touring party during a pandemic, Bright Eyes have made the difficult decision to postpone a handful of their indoor Summer 2021 shows,” the statement reads. “Over the past few weeks, the band have joined the rest of the world in having to recalibrate and reassess their safety measures on an almost daily basis as new information is reported. The well-being of the musicians, crew, friends, and family on the road is of the utmost importance to them. Conor, Mike, and Nate are aware that decisions they make for their traveling workplace have widespread repercussions for all immunocompromised family members within their touring party’s orbit and have therefore made the personal decision to postpone four shows during this time of unprecedented uncertainty. Bright Eyes will always prioritize the health and safety concerns of their touring team and are committed to providing a working environment everyone is comfortable with. The affected dates are New York City Terminal 5 on August 1st, Atlanta, Georgia, The Eastern on August 6th & 7th, and Birmingham, Alabama Sloss Furnaces on August 8th. Refunds at the point of purchase. Dates will be rescheduled as part of Bright Eyes 2022 touring, TBD. All other scheduled dates remain unchanged.”
