A Few More Dates: My Morning Jacket, Foo Fighters

My Morning Jacket adds a handful of dates on the East Coast. Meanwhile, Foo Fighters has announced a few U.K. shows to make up for the June gigs the band canceled because of Dave Grohl’s stage fall.

My Morning Jacket is racking up the miles on the tour bus’s odometer in support of its seventh full-length album, The Waterfall, which was released in May on ATO Records/Capitol.

Entertainment Weekly calls the LP the band’s “richest album yet,” while NPR praises frontman Jim James for finding new ways to use his vocals.

“And even though James’ enigmatic vocals have wound their way through seven albums with My Morning Jacket, the things he can do with his voice grow increasingly remarkable,” NPR writes. “In ‘Believe (Nobody Knows),’ he tucks words into unexpected points, toying with his phrasing in a way that adds weight to the overarching philosophy of his lyrics.”

The newest gigs on the itinerary represent a double serving of MMJ in Boston and New York.

When the Foo Fighters announced it was calling off the rest of its June European tour so Dave Grohl could recover from surgery, he promised he would “do everything I can to come back and give you a night to remember for the rest of your lives AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.”

Grohl dislocated his ankle and broke his fibula after falling off the stage in Sweden in June. After undergoing surgery and receiving six metal screws in his leg, Grohl returned to the stage in a cast to launch the band’s North American tour July 4.

Now the band has planned a trip across the pond in September, with Sept. 5-6 booked at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes and Sept. 8 in Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Iggy Pop will join the band at Milton Keynes. Royal Blood and Honeyblood are coming along for the Edinburgh show.
