MMJ Cancel Tour/Reschedule Chi

MMJ EUROPEAN TOUR CANCELLED / CHICAGO SHOWS RESCHEDULED

A Note From the Band:

MMJ
It is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of My Morning Jacket's up-coming tour to Europe due to injuries suffered by Jim in Iowa City. For the fans who have purchased tickets, we would like to extend our gratitude for your support and understanding. Our hope was to merely postpone the tour, but as our scheduling does not allow that to happen in the immediate future, we feel it is best to cancel this tour in hopes of re-scheduling at some point.

We would also like to say 'thank you' to all the fans who have reached out to Jim with their well-wishes as we all hope for his speedy and full recovery.

In other MMJ news, the postponed October 9 and 10 shows at the Chicago Theater have been rescheduled for December 27 and 28 of this year. Tickets purchased for the October 9 show will be honored on December 27, and tickets purchased for the October 10 show will be honored on December 28. For those unable to make the show, refunds will be given at the point of purchase.

We certainly wish Jim a quick recovery. And with that in mind we highly suggest you take the next eight minutes and twelve seconds to send Jim the love and kick on what just might be the best song of 2008...

There is not a single F'ing thing I dont absolutely love about this band. 5 MMJ shows and counting. Jim get well soon. I think 2009 is the year Bonnaroo (not to mention other fests) needs to move MMJ up to a headlining spot. They've grown with the festival and I think they're one of the best bands out there today, both in the studio and on the stage. So glad I kept my Chicago tix. Can't wait to see those shows building up to NYE.

Wow...I can't even express how disappointed I am to hear this. My friends and I basically planned a trip to Europe (my first time ever overseas) around seeing MMJ in Amsterdam. I really can't even belive this. This would have been the coolest thing I've ever done in my life by far. And to top it off, my tickets are in Dutch and I don't know how to get a refund.

Jim has over rocked on this one, but it is understandable as he was at the end of Off The Record which is very rocking. Lets just rock with him next time but watch out when this song comes on cuz people could hurt themselves...

Europe would have been really freakin' expensive considering the exchange rate and the state of the global economy. Jim, now you can really recover and get ready to throw down towards the end of the year. May I suggest you don't curb your stage insanity, but rather, perhaps strap on a harness connected to a wire and literally fly around MSG on NYE!!!!!!!

Well that sucks for people across the way. I have to say that the people up in Chi-town are pretty lucky that they are getting two shows before their epic MSG...i think they'll put on just as good of a show for you guys as they will for New York...I wish i could've seen these guys just once more this year because they are one of the greatest american rock bands performing out there...

And I hope just like a few others here that next year they will do more festivals and not just the annual Bonnaroo. I mean shit, i've gone to Lolla and Outside Lands and still have Voodoo Fest to go and with MMJ being one of the greats, i just wish they could've at least gotten onto one of these bills. Maybe next year...

Excellent band. Get Well and back on the road. PS- They didn't give refunds for Iowa, which is kind of shitty.

If anybody is really pissed about not getting a refund is not a true fan of the band...

Let me rephrase that for you Loseruser. I'm not going to Europe solely to see MMJ. However, I planned my backpacking route around seeing MMJ in Amsterdam. I am obviously not gonna cancel my trip because of this, I am just a little bummed because I really wanted to see them again. Whose the douchenozzle now?

PS- I'm a girl dickhead.

and BGsteveBG, I'm not at all pissed about not getting a refund. I love this band so much and I understand that this probably wasn't an easy decision for the guys but it's definitely in Jim's best interest. But four tickets did cost almost $200. Wouldn't you like to have your money back?

Geez, I cannot believe the time that haters spend to rag on other folks travel plans. If out of control, irrational passion for a band is not your thing, post elsewhere, this is a band that kicks unbelievable ass!! I'm biased as they are from my hometown, but I saw 'em @ Red Rocks and EPIC is the only word to properly describe it. Those who know get it, those who don't well...maybe you should save your money for tickets and rent the dvd. Sounds like you are wasting your time seeing live music if you've never had an epic experience. That's the whole point of this site, to share positive live music happenings, if you are disappointed, that's fine, but to rage on and on negatively about someone else's opinion or travel plans is pointless to me. Get Well Soon Jim and KEEP ON ROCKIN'!!!

If by "gay" you mean "awesome", then the answer is "Very!".
