< = with TBD The band also announced recently that they're trying something new on this upcoming European tour... Beginning with their upcoming Euro Tour, My Morning Jacket will begin the “Spontaneous Curation Series” letting fan club members and concert goers assist them in curating each night’s set list through Twitter as they travel around the globe. The series will also comprise of the band mining all six of their studio recorded albums and rarities adding to the spontaneity and uniqueness each night.
In keeping with the spirit of the Spontaneous Curation Series, no songs will be repeated for their back-to-back performances at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
“Curating spontaneously is best achieved by communication within a community because otherwise, curating in a vacuum can lead one to spontaneously combust. However, a spontaneously curated show is the best way to achieve collective musical combustion. Concurrently, we are crazed with excitement and curiosity to see how Roll Call and concert goers spontaneously contribute to our eclectic collective curation!”
