My Morning Jacket has embarked on a North American headline tour, which lands at The Anthem in DC on Saturday, July 29!
My Morning Jacket is currently traveling the world on a wide-ranging headline tour, with USA dates that include a two-night return to Morrison, Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre for a very special show celebrating the 20th anniversary of MMJ’s classic third studio album, It Still Moves, on August 25.
In June, the band released the third installment in My Morning Jacket’s MMJ LIVE vinyl series, MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004 (Return to Thunderdome), available now via ATO Records at all DSPs and as 2xLP 140g Coke bottle clear vinyl (with gatefold jacket and digital download card).
Recorded live on the Which Stage at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 12, 2004, Return To Thunderdome captures one of the most iconic sets in both My Morning Jacket and Bonnaroo history, a landmark performance that saw ominous dark clouds roll in just as the band took the stage. Though torrential rain quickly followed, the band proceeded to run through such classics as “Mahgeetah,” “Lowdown,” “Cobra,” “One Big Holiday,” and “Golden,” the latter of which is joined by an official live video streaming now at YouTube.
Watch My Morning Jacket perform “Golden” live from Bonnaroo in 2004 via YouTube:
“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!” MMJ frontman Jim James said. “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!”
