My Morning Jacket Takes Red Rocks Amphitheatre By Storm

first_imgMy Morning Jacket returned to the prized Red Rocks Amphitheatre last night, playing the first of two sold-out shows at the historic Morrison, CO venue. MMJ took the opportunity to play a career-spanning 27-song show, packed with lots of classic originals, bust-outs, and choice covers.The show opened with “Virctory Dance,” before grooving into “Heartbreakin’ Man” and “Outta My System.” Fans got a taste of their 2015 album The Waterfall with “In Its Infancy (The Waterfall),” before catching the first “Just One Thing” since July 18, 2013. What a bust out!After the bust out, the band welcomed Eric Johnson from opening act Fruit Bats to join in on “Wonderful (The Way I Feel).” They also brought out former band member Johnny Quaid to join in on various songs throughout the end of the main set.My Morning Jacket worked a number of covers into their set, including Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone,” and the reprise of their Prince cover, “Purple Rain,” that was debuted earlier this year. You can watch the “Tyrone” and “Purple Rain” covers, below. MMJ wasn’t done bringing out unexpected songs either, as they played a handful of 2016 tour debuts like “Picture Of You,” “Strangulation!,” and “Smokin’ From Shootin’” throughout the main set.The band closed out the show with a five-song encore that included “Highly Suspicious” and both parts of “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream,” before concluding with “Cobra” and “Mahgeetah.” MMJ is set to do it all again tonight, May 29th, so don’t miss out!The full setlist can be seen below.Edit this setlist | More My Morning Jacket setlists[Cover photo by trdonoghue/Instagram]last_img
