Conor Oberst

American singer-songwriter Conor Oberst formerly of Bright Eyes will play a solo Dublin show next year.

Taking place on Sunday, February 5th, the gig will be Oberst first Irish show in four years and will see him touring his eagerly awaited solo album Ruminations which is due out on October 14th.

Speaking about his forthcoming L.P. Conor Oberst says: “I wasn’t expecting to write a record. I honestly wasn’t expecting to do much of anything. Winter in Omaha can have a paralyzing effect on a person but in this case it worked in my favour. I was just staying up late every night playing piano and watching the snow pile up outside the window. Next thing I knew I had burned through all the firewood in the garage and had more than enough songs for a record. I recorded them quick to get them down but then it just felt right to leave them alone”.

Ticket info:

Tickets for Conor Oberst at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on February 5th are €28.50 (including booking fee) and go on sale on Friday, 2 September at 9:30am via Ticketmaster outlets nationwide
