With Saddle Creek announcing that Bright Eyes would be releasing a new LP, The People’s Key, on February 15, it was really only a matter of time until tour dates would follow. The tour will mostly stick to major cities, though surprisingly, here in Chicago the Vic Theatre will play home, a smaller venue than most would’ve expected.
