My Morning Jacket returned to action for their first performance since March 2018 on Friday with their first of two performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The band’s performance also acted as the first of only four planned shows in 2019, so fans were ready to rock by the time Jim James and company took the stage for their 23-song performance.

The night began with plenty of melodic mysticism as the band started the show with a pair of tunes from 2011’s Circuital with the gloriously ominous “Victory Dance” followed by “Circuital”. From there, the band continued with the relaxed feel of “XMas Curtain” before turning the energy back up with “First Light” and the funky flows of “East Morning Rebel”.

The band then turned to The Tennessee Fire tracklist for a performance of “Heartbreakin Man” as the song (and album) celebrates its 20th-anniversary in 2019. The performance continued with “Lowdown” before really slowing things down with “Slow Slow Tune” and the easygoing tempo of “Smokin’ From Shootin'”. The mid-set psychedelia continued with “In Its Infancy (The Waterfall)” before the band turned to a more structured feel for “I’m Amazed”. Next came a two-song segue with “War Begun” into “I Will Sing You Songs”. “Golden” and “Dondante” then followed, as did another multi-song combination beginning with “The Way That He Sings”, which flowed right into “What a Wonderful Man”, and finally closing with “Run Thru”.

The band briefly left the stage, only to return for a five-song encore beginning with “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)”. The lengthy encore continued with their climactic anthem in “Believe (Nobody Knows)”, followed by “Master Plan”, “Anytime”, and finally sending fans home with “Mahgeetah”.

Watch the band’s show-closing performance of “Mahgeetah” from Friday below.
