My Morning Jacket announces August tour dates

on May 18, 2010, 2:20pm

Just a day after My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, along with fellow Kentucky musicians Ben Lee and Daniel Martin Moore, announced plans for a summer tour, his main outfit has done the same.

Following James’ July excursion, he will reunite with his My Morning Jacket bandmates for an August leg of dates. The run will include several headlining shows, two of which will feature Sub Pop band Avi Buffalo, an appearance at the Mile High Music Festival, and opening spots for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

Plus, keeping the charitable spirit going (James, Sollee, & Moore’s tour will support Appalachian Voices, an organization devoted to ending mountaintop removal coal mining), My Morning Jacket will donate $1 from each ticket sold for its headlining dates to a local charity. And if that wasn’t enough, there is always the possibility of hearing a new song.

Tickets for the newly announced headlining dates go on sale starting Friday, May 21st via Ticketmaster.com.
