My Morning Jacket’s Jim James will tour North America this November in support of his upcoming solo album, Uniform Distortion. The acoustic solo tour will take the mystic guitarist and singer through both large and mid-size U.S. cities starting on Nov. 2 in Los Angeles and continuing throughout the month before coming to an end on Nov. 21 with a hometown show at Kentucky’s Louisville Palace. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming fall run will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday (June 22) at 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here. Fans should note that the Port Chester and Louisville concerts will be starting their general on-sale two hours later on Friday beginning at 12 p.m. local time.
According to Monday's announcement, James will bring his catalogue of solo material to audiences in a completely stripped down presentation, with just his acoustic guitar and vocals. He will be joined by his touring drummer David Givan, in addition to Hurray For The Riff Raff’s Alynda Segarra coming on as the tour’s support act for each show. Notable stops on the upcoming run include scheduled shows at Denver’s Paramount Theatre (Nov. 6), New York City’s Town Hall (Nov. 13) and Boston’s Boch Center (Nov. 16) just to name a few.
“Excited to announce a solo-acoustic tour this fall,” James said in the announcement post shared to his Facebook page on Monday morning. “I’m 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. Can’t wait to see everyone out on the open road.”
James will be releasing his third solo album, Uniform Distortion in just a few weeks on June 29 via ATO Records. The popular rock performer has already shared the first single from the album with a track titled “Throwback” - not to be confused with My Morning Jacket's "Throwback (When We Were Young" - which can be heard in the video above. James recently appeared at David Lynch's Festival of Disruption event in Brooklyn last month, in addition to hosting his own intimate shows in New York and Los Angeles to preview some of the new material which will appear on Uniform Distortion.
