Just Announced: My Morning Jacket on September 24th
Louisville, KY can lay claim to some great things -- Muhammad Ali, the Kentucky Derby, Colonel Sanders, and now My Morning Jacket, a band well on its way to being one of this nation's best live acts, bar none.
Now the band is returning to Tucson for the first time in over six years, and only the second time ever (the first being an opening stint for Guided By Voices at Club Congress in June of 2002 that we remember fondly). My Morning Jacket will hit the Rialto stage on Wednesday, September 24th. Tickets for this exciting addition to our outsized fall concert schedule will go on sale to the public this Friday, August 29th at 10 a.m.
You will not want to miss this tremendous band on the Rialto's brand-new PA system. WE MEAN IT!
