Review by: Liz Pena, photos: Jennifer Hyams
At 37 years old, Conor Oberst has now been writing and releasing music for over half his life. Despite enduring both musical and personal changes, he has continued to steadily release music with different projects including Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, his own solo releases, and other groupings of his ever evolving lineup. Oberst’s 2017 tour follows the release of his latest record Salutations as well as 2016 release Ruminations. With so much new music released since his last appearance in North Florida, Conor Oberst’s October 17 show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall was a highly anticipated event.
