Frontman Jim James said in a statement: “Hard to believe it’s been eight years since we played a show overseas and all that time passing has built up a lot of energy and is getting us so excited to be back out there playing music in some of our favourite spots around the globe!
“We can’t wait to see everyone and begin a new chapter!”
Various pre-sales for the UK shows start from this Wednesday (February 22) and Thursday (23), before general sale goes live Friday (24) at 10am GMT. Buy your tickets here.

Each night the respective band will play equal length sets at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley (August 18, 19) and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (20).
My Morning Jacket’s self-titled ninth studio album came out in October 2021 via ATO Records, the first new music from the band since 2015’s ‘The Waterfall’.
“I hope this album brings people a lot of joy and relief, especially since we’ve all been cooped up for so long/ I know that feeling you get from driving around blasting music you love, or even lying in bed and crying to the music you love,” James said of the album upon its announcement. “The fact that we’re able to be a part of people’s lives in that way is so magical to us, and it feels really good that we’re still around to keep doing that.”
