The last time folks in New York City saw the mighty My Morning Jacket performing live they were ringing in the 2009 with a now legendary show at Madison Square Garden. When MMJ announced its return to the road earlier this year many wondered just when and where the band would be playing in the Big Apple. Well, we now have our answer as My Morning Jacket has announced a five-night residency, that will take place on October 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, at the cavernous Terminal 5, where they will play each of their five studio albums in their entirety (one each night), along with covers and additional songs from each album’s time period.
Here’s the official word from the band…
New York City’s Terminal 5 will be presenting a historic five night run of shows in which My Morning Jacket will perform one of their full-length albums in its entirety each night, along with additional songs and covers from each album’s time period. The stint will kick off on Monday, October 18th, with a performance of the 1999 debut The Tennessee Fire, and will be followed chronologically by their next four full length albums, ending with 2008’s Evil Urges. on Saturday, October 23rd.
Tickets for the shows go on pre-sale on June 14th, with 5-show ticket packages available to fans. The individual shows will go on sale to the public on Friday, June 18th.
