MMJ Reschedule Chicago Shows
My Morning Jacket will perform at the Chicago Theater on December 27 and 28. The group was originally scheduled to headline the venue earlier this month but postponed its performances after Jim James injured himself onstage in Iowa. Tickets purchased for the groups previously scheduled October 9 show will be honored on December 27, while tickets purchased for the bands October 10 performance will be honored on December 28. For those unable to make the show, refunds will be given at the point of purchase.
A note on the groups homepage says the follow:
As some of you may have heard we had to cancel our show last evening in Iowa City. We were finishing up the last few bars of ‘Off The Record and just like any other night we were all having a great time. Jim went to get closer to the audience on his side of the stage, and as he moved forward to step onto the sub-woofer the lights darkened, and he inadvertently stepped off the stage. Upon falling, he suffered traumatic injuries to his torso, and was immediately taken to the hospital.
For those who attended the Iowa City show, we would like to extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. We take our fans and performances very seriously, and would never cancel a show unless it was absolutely necessary. Please know that we will be making every effort to return to your fine city.
Thank you so much to our fans for the kind sentiments and well-wishes on Jim’s behalf. We hope for Jim’s quick recovery and to be back out on the road soon.
As previously reported, My Morning Jacket will headline New Yorks Madison Square Garden on December 31. The group will also begin a European tour at Dublins Tripod on October 29.
