Quote from: Jbpats on Jan 24, 2020, 08:52 amCorrect me if I am wrong, but wasn't Bo a fill in for the last tour? Didn't the original member of the touring band get sick or something?
How are people confident that he was invited back?

I don't know the answer myself but in Bo's Twitter bio he lists "keyboardist for Roger Waters, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne and other good things."

Which is not inaccurate, but to play devils advocate a bit, Bo did not tour with Ray during his last tour, Carl was in the band though.
There was no band, it was just Ray and Carl mostly acoustic although Carl did play some electric and pedal steel.

I meant his last summer tour in 2018, there was definitely a full band..

Yeah, Bo was a fill in for Drew Erickson on keyboard.

I think everyone is just going off Bo's twitter reply from yesterday which he insinuates he made the choice to sit it out... At least that's all I'm going off of. Lol

If you didn't see the tweet, Erica asked if he would be "Going out with Roger again?" (In regards to the tour announcement yesterday)

Bo's reply was "No, I decided to sit this one out"

I definitely do not know the accurate answer here, but while I think did Bo originally come on as a fill-in, he seemed to have merged into the regular lineup. He did multiple tours with Roger over the period of multiple years.

Bo confirmed he decided to sit this tour out with Roger... and that bodes really well because why else would he?
If you don't know for yourself, how could you ever know for me....

Great to know that Bo likely has time for MMJ.  The Roger news initially made me write off the summer and a good part of the fall.

hard to be part of the recording process when you're traveling the world with another band. (at least that's what I am hoping).
Don't you ever turn it off

Someone somewhere mentioned recently that MMJ has finished recording a new album. I have no other details and do not know the accuracy of the source.
Close enough!

Murph

So I guess Roger Waters just confirmed on XM Radio that Bo isn't touring with him because MMJ will be touring behind a new album.  Anyone hear it?

This is all based off of a Facebook post.  I didn't hear the interview.  So in hindsight, maybe I should have waited until this was confirmed, but I got too excited. Plus, I don't know who would just make that up.  If true, that's a pretty cool album announcement, having Roger Waters spill the beans

haha ya i just saw that facebook post as well, did some googling but couldn't find anything. Fingers crossed!

Right?  :evil:

Has to be legit. All signs are pointing to a new record/tour. Like Murph said, who would make that up?

YES!!  I didn't hear it and am surprised the DJ or whomever asked about his keyboard player or how that came up in conversation..... but very exciting news indeed.

ranyart

Roger is a pro and I would be shocked if he released even a hint anyone else's personal touring information in advance of the band doing it...

oistheone

Just a hunch, but I feel like this Railbird Festival rumor may have legs. Booked by AC Entertainment (Forecastle, Roo), this fest is probably looking to make a big splash in their second year -- which a MMJ headlining set in Kentucky surely would accomplish. Takes place Aug 22-23 this year, lining up verrrrry nicely with the late-summer/early fall tour rumblings...

I think it's pretty obvious that the person who posted that on Facebook just made that shit up which is pretty annoying. Not a single mention of Roger Waters saying My Morning Jacket is doing a tour on the internet other than that FB post. Some people just starved for attention i guess
Anytime

I suggest we start thinking bigger picture here.  Chaotic times coming to a head and the only way to address chaos is with a clear plan to help navigate our troubled waters.  Peace and love...

pretty funny that whiskeyknits asking Bo about Waters tour made it into this Jambase article:
