My Morning Jacket will return to the road this summer with a headlining tour, performances at the Electric Forest and Peach Festivals and their first concert at historic Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY. The amphitheatre run will kick off in Cincinnati, OH on June 22nd and include shows in Nashville, TN (July 7th) and Columbia, MD (July 14th). See below for dates and opening acts, which will include The Record Company, Margo Price, Gary Clark Jr., Jaw Gems and The Districts.
The Roll Call/fan club pre-sale for the newly announced dates launches March 14th at 10 am local time for all shows except Cleveland, where the pre-sale will kick off Tuesday, March 21st at 10 am ET. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning on Friday, March 17th with the Cleveland on-sale Friday, March 24th. A limited number of tickets are still available for the July 15th concert at Forest Hills Stadium, which will be the band’s only 2017 New York City performance. One dollar from every ticket purchased will benefit My Morning Jacket’s Waterfall Project. Established in 2015, the Project is dedicated to supporting and promoting actions, big and small, for positive change in the world.
My Morning Jacket has also released the stunning audio download from the band’s One Big Holiday event in Mexico earlier this year. The band played three nights on the Mayan Riviera beaches, with no song repeats, pulling from band’s deep archive. Joined by guests such as The Head and The Heart, Gary Clark Jr, Lucius, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band, fans can purchase individual nights or the three-night run on MP3, FLAC or ALAC via nugs.net.
The Denver Post said, “My Morning Jacket…[is] among the top live bands in any genre, anywhere.” 2015’s The Waterfall (ATO /Capitol Records), My Morning Jacket’s seventh studio album, earned the band its third consecutive GRAMMY nomination in the Best Alternative Music Album category. Following My Morning Jacket’s spring 2016 tour, Jim James released a new solo album, Eternally Even (ATO Records/Capitol Records). Stereogumpraised its”raw, exquisitely textured glory” and NPR listeners voted it as one of 2016’s top albums.
