Reunited Desaparecidos Announce August Tour; Conor Oberst To Play Solo Shows This Summer

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).
