Bright Eyes pull V Festival appearances

Bright Eyes have cancelled their performances at this weekend’s V Festival (August 18-19), to be held in Staffordshire and Chelmsford.

The folk-rock troupe, led by songwriter Conor Oberst, have also pulled out of a series of UK dates due to start tonight.

It seems illness is the cause of the cancellations, although no specifics have been given.

A statement from the band said: “Bright Eyes would like to express their utmost thanks to all their fans and supporters and sincerely apologise for this unfortunate occurrence.”

The dates affected are:

Bristol Carling Academy (August 15)
Liverpool Carling Academy (16)
Nottingham Royal Concert Hall (17)
V Festival, Chelmsford (18)
V Festival, Staffordshire (19)
