Some good smaller acts on there too.  I have heard good things about Ohana.

I went to Ohana fest in 2018 for one day, seeing Eddie Vedder, Johnny Marr, & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  There's a great vibe, you're right there near the water, and the two stages are side by side so you don't really miss anything.  Can't wait to see MMJ playing there!

This news makes me happy!  There's zero chance that we'll be there but it warms my heart that the MMJ dates are starting to become reality.  For all those who can go to Ohana it sure does look like an awesome festival so enjoy it for us...

So what kinda exclusivity window do you think Ohana got!?? Two weeks seems reasonable for a non-headlining slot I reckon!

Maybe we'll get some teasers at the end of next week and the album and tour announcement by the last week of March, start of April?!

I'm not going so if anyone wants to use my 10 Club presale code let me know.

So glad to see a date drop and cant wait for more !!!

Gota say as someone who likes Kings of Leon and seen them a couple times its almost insulting to me that MMJ has the under card billing. I get it Kings are a better mainstream draw, but live? not even a competition, MMJ will blow them out of the water.

2015 since the last West Coast dates, it is time! I've seen Jim solo five times in So Cal since then.
Ohana is close to home, but I think there are some non-festival shows coming that will be an even better option. :thumbsup:

Totally agree with you Bulldog.  MMJ is sooooo much better than KOL live.  MMJ should close out the show for sure.

yeah, i enjoy some KOL for sure.  But I've seen them live a few times.  Very dull and the singer comes off as a c*ck.  I hope MMJ takes it as their responsibility to mop the stage with them

maybe the should have scheduled the first day billing as QOTSA>Black Crowes>KOL, and then they can battle out for which lead singer is the biggest douchebag.

If you want to see who the biggest douchebag is then you need to add Ryan Adams to the bill as well.

I was wondering today how the virus might potentially effect new music being released. Obviously tours and festivals are being cancelled left right and centre but are artists/bands also going to now hold off on new releases until a time when it's safe to tour again? For most these days touring is the only way to earn a living with streaming/downloads being the norm which don't pay well at all.

Run the Jewels seemed to be aiming to drop RTJ4 right at Coachella-now that Coachella is canceled, El-P said they "don't want to wait much longer than initially planned," but that assumes they will wait a bit.

You could argue releasing stuff now while people are stuck at home for 3 weeks and looking for things to do would be the best time to release new material.  That being said, I would imagine most upcoming releases will be pushed back.

Touring with a five piece band is one thing, but Jim and Teddy's tour with an orchestra is a whole different matter and it will be very interesting to see if the May shows in particular are able to go on as scheduled.

They're not touring with an orchestra, they play with local orchestras. Regardless, I agree the shows may be in jeopardy. But I would really like to think we'll be on the downside of this issue by then.

Jason Isbell brought up a good point on twitter for people asking him to drop his new album early. His point was that it would crush independent record stores that are already struggling and rely on vinyl releases to survive.
