Jim James has announced a unique, career-spanning solo acoustic concert tour, for this upcoming fall. The tour will begin November 2 at Los Angeles, CA’s Cathedral Sanctuary before visiting historic theatres and performing arts centers across the United States, culminating with a November 21 homecoming show at Louisville, KY’s Louisville Palace. With My Morning Jacket off the road in 2018, James is keeping creatively busy with the release and promotion of his upcoming solo album.
The newly added tour dates will see the MMJ frontman–accompanied by longtime touring drummer David Givan–perform a career-encompassing repertoire including songs from his upcoming solo new album, Uniform Distortion, due to arrive everywhere on Friday, June 29th via ATO. Special guest Alynda Segarra from Hurray for the Riff Raff will serve as opening support for all the upcoming fall dates.
“I am looking forward to exploring all sorts of songs stripped down as they first occurred in their natural habitat — just voice and guitar. Although I have played many shows by myself, this will be my first tour of this style and I am excited to see everyone out on the open road,” says James in a press release.
One dollar per ticket purchased will go to The Waterfall Project, whose beneficiaries will be United for A Fair Economy and National Bail Fund Network. Tickets for all newly announced dates will go on sale Friday, June 22th. For complete details, head to Jim James’ website.
In addition, James’ upcoming live schedule includes a one-night-only double bill supporting Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters at Berkeley, CA’s Greek Theatre Berkeley on June 21st as well as a sold-out full-band performance at Los Angeles’ intimate Pico Union celebrating the release of Uniform Distortion, slated for July 18th. See below for a list of tour dates and head to James’ website for more information.
