Following a successful run of shows on the West Coast, Desaparecidos are happy to announce their first East Coast tour since 2003, beginning February 15th at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, and wrapping up on February 26th at Webster Hall in New York.
Conor Oberst has added four live dates to his 2012 solo tour schedule. In addition to several already sold out dates this summer, Oberst will be playing at Capitol Theater in Madison, WI and Bass Concert Hall in Austin in September. He will also be making stops in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center on November 18th and Boston’s Converse Hall at 88 Tremont St on December 6th.
These newly announced dates follow the eagerly awaited tour with Desaparecidos, who haven’t toured together since 2002. Desaparecidos have confirmed their appearance at this year’s FYF Fest on September 2nd in addition to a stop in Chico on August 28th.
Desaparecidos, the Nebraska-based 5-piece fronted by Conor Oberst, have reunited. The band, who haven’t toured together since 2002, have announced shows in Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco in addition to a previously announced performance at Omaha’s MAHA Music Festival.
Desaparecidos return as the original line up of Conor Oberst (vocals, guitar) Landon Hedges (bass guitar, vocals), Matt Baum (drums), Denver Dalley – (guitar) and Ian McElroy (keyboards). The band formed in 2001, released one album (2002’s critically lauded Read Music/Speak Spanish), and ceased playing together shortly thereafter.
Prior to the long awaited and much rumored summer dates, Oberst will play several solo shows throughout the northeast.
