Legendary Kentucky rockers My Morning Jacket announced their first proper tour in five years on Tuesday.

Kicking off on Aug. 27 at Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre in Charlotte, N.C., and concluding Nov. 4-6 with a three-night stand at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre, My Morning Jacket’s upcoming trek includes previously announced festival plays at Kentucky’s Railbird (Aug. 28), Tennessee’s Bonnaroo (Sept. 4) and Southern California’s Ohana (Sept. 24).

The band will also play amphitheaters including Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md., and theaters such as Seattle’s Paramount, where it’ll log two nights Oct. 1-2.

My Morning Jacket most recently performed in 2019, when it staged four August gigs, two at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and one apiece at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y., and Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, N.Y. For their 2021 tour, the band will return to Forest Hills Stadium, where it grossed $674,712 on Aug. 10, 2019, for two shows on Sept. 10 and 11.

Brittany Howard will join the tour’s East Coast gigs in early September, with Durand Jones & The Indications handling opening duties for West Coast dates and Bedouine warming stages for the trek’s final shows in the South and Midwest.

Several venues on My Morning Jacket’s upcoming itinerary are familiar turf for the band. In 2017, the most recent year it staged a proper tour, My Morning Jacket grossed $175,278 at Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre and $316,442 at Merriweather Post Pavilion. In 2015, it grossed $133,940 at Santa Barbara Bowl, where it will play Sept. 23, and $90,172 at St. Louis’ Stifel Theater, where it’ll take the stage Nov. 2.

The band’s top-grossing box office showing was its sold-out 2019 Red Rocks stand, where it sold 19,050 tickets and raked in $1.14 million.

In recent years, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James has had road success in his own right, playing theaters and clubs.

“It’s been 20 years now and I just feel so grateful that people wanted to listen and we’ve been able to keep going,” James told Pollstar in a 2018 cover story.

My Morning Jacket is represented by Red Light Management and longtime agent Scott Clayton of WME.
