My Morning Jacket, supported by guitarist Gary Clark Jr., played their first show in New York City since November of 2015 last night. The band’s concert at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens featured an 18-song set with a four-song encore, as they included beloved tunes from 2003’s It Still Moves with a pair of Jim James solo tracks and more.
Jim James, Tom Blankenship, Patrick Hallahan, Carl Broemel and Bo Koster took the stage on a beautiful Saturday evening in New York City with one-two punch of “Circuital” and “The Way That He Sings” before the band performed James’ “A New Life.” A soulful rendition of “I’m Amazed” came next followed by “Lay Low” from their Z album and a double-shot of “Mahgeetah” and “Golden” off It Still Moves.
Saturday’s MMJ set also featured “Evil Urges,” the title track off their 2008 Grammy-nominated album. The New York City crowd was additionally treated to “Gideon” along with the solid block of “Spring (Among The Living)” > “Dondante” > “Victory Dance” > “Run Thru,” ahead of the set-closing pair of “Off The Record” and “Phone Went West.” My Morning Jacket kicked off the encore with another Jim James song, “State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U.)” followed by “Wordless Chorus” and “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream Pt. 2.” The band then concluded the 22-song show with “One Big Holiday.”
