LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — American indie rockers My Morning Jacket announced plans to play only three shows in 2019. And that’s after performing at just one show — their own curated One Big Holiday Festival in 2018.
The band announced that they are lined up for a pair of performances at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo. on August 2nd and August 3rd, followed about a week later when the group performs at Forest Hills Stadium in New York on Aug. 10.
In a statement announcing the shows on their website, the band underscored “These are the only planned live dates by the band in 2019.”
Presale tickets will be available Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. local time, and general public tickets will be on sale Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. local time.
As a group, My Morning Jacket’s most recent release was 2015’s The Waterfall, but earlier this year, guitarist Carl Broemel released his latest solo album Wished Out.
In 2017, the band’s frontman Jim James told Rolling Stone that a new album was in the works, but said he was taking a slower approach to life, including sharing a living space with tortoises.
“There are two 40-year-old giant desert tortoises that live here, and they’ve been amazing to live with,” he told Rolling Stone. “They don’t need you, but they also enjoy being around you. They’re so content to do very little, and I’m trying to learn from them: ‘You’re just gonna climb out of your hole and sit in the sun?’ ‘Yeah, that’s all I’m gonna do today.’”
