Jim James Announces 2018 Fall Solo Acoustic Tour
My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James will spend most of November embarking on a solo acoustic tour. James is expected to perform material from throughout his career including songs from his forthcoming new album Uniform Distortion at historic theaters and performing arts centers in the U.S.
“I am looking forward to exploring all sorts of songs stripped down as they first occurred in their natural habitat — just voice and guitar. Although I have played many shows by myself, this will be my first tour of this style and I am excited to see everyone out on the open road,” said James in a press release. Longtime touring drummer David Givan will accompany Jim on the run, while Hurray For The Riff Raff vocalist Alynda Segarra will open each date.
Jim James begins the November 2018 Tour at Cathedral Sanctuary in Los Angeles on November 2. From there, James brings the tour to Oakland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Milwaukee, Chicago and Cleveland. The Northeast portion of the run includes stops in New York City, Port Chester, Boston and Washington D.C. Next up are performances in Atlanta and Nashville before the Louisville native ends the tour with a hometown show at The Louisville Palace on November 21.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 22. Uniform Distortion is due on June 29 via ATO Records.
