Bright Eyes Harvest sideshows

Update:
A Melbourne show has been added to the tour
A Brisbane show has now been added to the tour.



Breakup balladeer Bright Eyes will play at least one sideshow while in town this November for Harvest Festival.

According to an advertisement in Sydney Streetpress Drum Conor Oberst is performing at the Enmore Theatre on Monday 14th November. With TV On The Radio and other Harvest artists having already confirmed headline gigs in multiple cities it seems likely that other Bright Eyes shows will be announced soon.

For what it’s worth, festival boss AJ Maddah has announced on Twitter that Melbourne will be getting a Bright Eyes sideshow, but ruled out the chance of shows in Perth or Adelaide.

Given Oberst has said that he plans to ‘retire’ the Bright Eyes moniker soon, this may be the last chance you get to shed a tear about the ghosts of lost loves and hear tunes from his new album The People’s Key.

Bright Eyes Harvest sideshow:
Thursday 10th November – The Hi-FI, Melbourne
Monday 14th November – Enmore, Sydney
Thursday 17th November – The Hi-Fi, Brisbane

Stay tuned to FL for more updates.

If it was like 20 years ago, we wouldn't have to listen to people from Perth whinging on the internet about not getting any gigs.

...just adding my whinge about Perth missing out on this.

apparently, perth not getting more sideshows is because of poor ticket sales on other shows. perth counter revolution was a train-wreck for ticket sales. melbourne's festivals sell out quickly, so they get the extra shows.

lineofbestfit said on the 10th Nov, 2011

woah, great set. Doubt he will play much more fevers and mirrors on monday and thursday but would kill for centre of the world and a few others.

That really is a great setlist, hope Harvest is as well rounded as that. And as much as I'd love to see it, I don't think he plays Center of the World live, or at least not very often.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 10th Nov, 2011

Did anyone go? How was it? Support?

Jestarrr

Jestarrr said on the 11th Nov, 2011



It was pretty great.

The first support (The Fozbirds or something) were completely terrible, not at all for a BE gig.
The second group wasn't bad though - the drummer was fucking awesome.

As for BE, they pretty much played every song you could hope for. They went for like 2 1/2 hours - and even though Conor was completely trashed at the start, every song sounded pretty perfect. If anything, it made him sound better.

Kevin Devine as second support for Brisbane, huzzah looks like it'll be the best one.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 15th Nov, 2011

What a show last night! Very solid setlist, played pretty much everything I wanted him to. Darren was great, too.

lucky Brisbane

and yes it was so good I loved it, I also scored the setlist and got to hold his hand which was the most amazing thing in the world ever.

Another good reason why gigs should be 18+.

I'm working on a theory that will prove you were actually born a thirtysomething man and have not aged.
