Rock and roll darlings My Morning Jacket have added two new local dates to their upcoming fall tour, and they’re now set to play The Met Philly on October 27 and 28. The tour was announced this past May to commemorate the 20th anniversary of It Still Moves, with the first nights in New York (Oct 19), Atlanta (Nov 3), Chicago (Nov 9) and Red Rocks (Aug 25) featuring front-to-back performances of the album as part of the setlists. The month-long tour begins October 17 in Toronto, Ontario before moving through New York, Illinois, Alabama, Georgia, and more.
Most recently, the band released a live set from their 2004 performance at Bonnaroo, titled MMJ Live Vol. 3: Bonnaroo 2004. The tracklist features numerous highlights from It Still Moves, including a powerful kickoff performance of “Mahgeetah” as well as “One Big Holiday”, “Golden”, “Dancefloors”, and “Steam Engine.”
It Still Moves was My Morning Jacket’s call-up to the majors, seeing the psychedelic southern rock band explore experimental sounds and take songwriting risks during a time in their career where many bands would have reverted to the basics and played it safe . This experimentality was rewarded greatly, however, as the album catapulted the band into mainstream indie spotlight, earning them critical acclaim for their reverb-soaked, hauntingly empty style.
In addition to the news of the show, we’re excited to announce WXPN is offering a ticket giveaway for both of My Morning Jacket’s performances at The Met. Enter for your chance to win a pair (2) of tickets to see the band on October 27 and 28! Two shows, two winners!
