Because My Morning Jacket are, like, a “Band with a capital B,” and because they have an awesome van and shiny, well-tuned instruments and stuff, they like to do some seriously Band-like things from time to time — particularly when the weather is really nice! One of the more formidable things they like to do is embark upon arena-sized tours of the US, which is exactly what they intend to do this summer.
In accordance with everything I just said, a formidable run of arena-sized shows has just been announced by the Band, including support from the likes of Gary Clark Jr, Margo Price, The Record Company, Jaw Gems, and The Districts.
And just in case you’re not entirely sure whether this kind of thing is “your vibe,” MMJ (that’s a cool acronym for My Morning Jacket) have gone ahead and taken the liberty of making your deliberation an embarrassingly silly non-issue by releasing the live recordings of their epic three-night, career-retrospective shows from One Big Holiday, which went down earlier this year. Get your fill of that here, after which you’ll have no recollection of having ever not been 100% on-board with this.
