Widely regarded as one of the greatest live bands of their generation, My Morning Jacket’s spectacle of a live show has become the stuff of legend and touches down in Philadelphia for one show only August 23rd. From performing at Madison Square Garden to being nominated for a Grammy with their last album Evil Urges, their achievements show no signs of slowing down.

Since forming in 1998 the group has boldly tackled new genres and ideas on each album, maintaining a perpetual evolution that is thrilling, innovative, and impossible to predict. Frontman Jim James has an immediately recognizable voice that is iconic in its own right.  Soulful and enigmatic all at once, his golden tenor can command an audience equally with heartbreaking fragility or unfettered power. 

The quintet’s sixth studio album, Circuital, was recorded almost entirely live to capture an honest spirit and human spontaneity throughout the listening experience.  The new songs are destined to sound electrifying in a live setting, and the guys are excited to perform their latest batch of anthems for fans across the globe.

Neko Case, the fiery singer-songwriter whose smoky, sophisticated vocals are often featured with Vancouver indie supergroup the New Pornographers tours in support of her latest album, Middle Cyclone. SPIN Magazine gave it 9-out-of-10 and The New Yorker calls it “the best album of her career”.
