Bright Eyes’ New Orleans show “was AMAZING” one night after Houston incident
Bright Eyes continued their tour on Monday night (5/23) at New Orleans' Orpheum Theater, the night after Conor Oberst left the stage after two songs at the band's Houston show on Sunday. The Houston show was ultimately cancelled, and refunds were issued to ticketholders, but according to attendees, New Orleans went on as normal, with Reddit users calling it "AMAZING" and "so good." "The entire show was amazing," one commenter writes. "Two hours, 95% music with him talking some in-between. He danced so much and was so into it. It was all great."
The band hasn't addressed Sunday night's incident on social media, and when asked if they brought it up on Monday night, one attendee wrote, "No they didn’t mention houston at all."
See Bright Eyes' Monday night setlist, and a couple of videos from the show, below. Their tour continues on Wednesday (5/25) in Charleston, SC, and stops in the NYC area for a show at Asbury Park's Stone Pony Summer Stage on June 3 with Alex G.
