My Morning Jacket announced their 2017 summer tour dates on Monday morning, which includes their first concert at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY.
My Morning Jacket will be hitting the road this summer starting in late June, as the band announced a full run of tour dates across the United States on Monday morning. The run of shows kicks off on June 22 in Cincinnati, OH, just over an hour up the road from the band’s hometown of Louisville.
Notable stops along their 13-show tour include scheduled performances at the Electric Forest and Peach Festivals, as well as their first ever concert at the newly renovated Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York City on July 15. The band will be joined throughout the tour by opening acts including The Record Company, Margo Price, Gary Clark Jr., Jaw Gems and The Districts.
My Morning Jacket had toured throughout the U.S. this past spring, but mostly took some time off over the summer and fall as the band’s singer/guitarist Jim James had his own solo project to promote. James had embarked on his own full U.S. tour this past November and December in support of his third solo album, Eternally Even.
Fan club pre-sale for tickets start March 14, at 10 a.m. local time with exception for their show in Cleveland, where the pre-sale will start on March 21, at 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting March 17, with the Cleveland on-sale following a week later on Friday, March 24. One dollar from every ticket purchased will benefit My Morning Jacket’s Waterfall Project, which raises awareness in bringing a “positive change in the world.’
