Tickets are on general sale from 5pm on Friday 1st February - and presale from Wednesday 30th January at 5pm.

The pair have also shared a video for track ‘Dylan Thomas’, directed by The Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner.

“Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst are two of my favourite songwriters and lyricists of our time,” she says, “so it was an honour to get to work with them on the visuals for their new project together. As always I worked with Adam Kolodny, my DP and creative collaborator to bring this cross between an Eyes Wide Shut LA mansion party and the Great Northern Hotel to life.”
