My Morning Jacket unveils Bonnaroo 2004 release

MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004 (Return to Thunderome) drops June 9th

My Morning Jacket has announced the third installment in their MMJ Live vinyl series, MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004 (Return to Thunderdome), arriving via ATO Records on Friday, June 9th. Recorded on the Which Stage at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 12, 2004, the 12-song collection will be available at all DSPs and as double LP 140-gram Coke bottle clear vinyl with gatefold jacket and digital download card. On March 30th, One Big Family members will get exclusive access to preorder a limited edition digital deluxe of MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004. The offer includes a digital collectible album with cover art and photos, high-quality audio files, and early access to upcoming exclusive content.

MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004 captures one of the most iconic sets in both My Morning Jacket and Bonnaroo history, a now-legendary performance that saw ominous dark clouds roll in just as the band took the stage. Though torrential rain quickly followed, the band proceeded to unleash a landmark run through such classics as “Mahgeetah,” “Lowdown,” “Cobra,” and “One Big Holiday,” the latter of which premieres today at all DSPs and streaming services.

“It seems like only yesterday we were playing in the hot n sweaty rain-soaked Thunderdome down at the ol roo…but WOW it’s been nearly 20 years!” Jim James exclaims. “We are so excited to revisit and share this pivotal moment for the band and beautiful moment in time with the universe with you all again!”

My Morning Jacket recently announced plans for an upcoming US headlining tour. The dates begin May 14th at Mobile, AL’s Saenger Theatre and then continue through a two-night return to Morrison, CO’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 25-26.

My Morning Jacket and the non-profit REVERB are partnering for the third consecutive year to reduce the environmental footprint of their tour and take action on the climate crisis. In addition to a comprehensive tour sustainability program, the band will be supporting REVERB’s climate portfolio which funds projects that measurably reduce greenhouse gas pollution, address climate justice, and directly decarbonize the music industry.

The upcoming tour joins an already busy live schedule for My Morning Jacket that includes headline shows in the UK and Europe, festival appearances at Guadalajara, Mexico’s Corona Capital Guadalajara on May 20th, Barcelona, Spain’s Primavera Sound on June 3rd, Porto, Portugal’s Primavera Sound on June 9th, Madrid, Spain’s Primavera Sound on June 10th, Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 17th, Scranton, PA’s Peach Music Festival on July 1st, Floyd, VA’s FloydFest on July 30th, and a three-night run alongside Fleet Foxes set to visit Berkeley, CA’s Greek Theatre from August 18-19 and Los Angeles, CA’s historic Hollywood Bowl on August 20th.
