I don't mean to sound negative, but I'm not feeling optimistic about a 2020 tour/album  :cry:

We're a week into the year. Be patient.

Woah, thats such a hard combo to believe happening but it did! Crazy times

completely agree, 'Roo was just the first festival I thought could see MMJ in the lineup. If we don't hear any news by end of next month, I'll be disappointed.

Lockn is the week following 'Roo now so I wonder how competition has impacted the bookings of each.
Don't you ever turn it off

I dunno, assessing the chances of a tour/album based on whether or not they play a few major festivals doesn't really make sense to me.

I agree, and either MMJ is done for the foreseeable future, which I doubt, or they are still working their master plan after the management change.  I can't fault them for taking their sweet time to make the art they want to make.  Patience will pay one way or another...

Not necessarily related to a tour rumor but yesterday Kevin Ratterman posted a pic of Patrick at his studio in LA.

Also agreeing with this.  I thought 'Roo was a 50/50 shot, and in hindsight glad to not see them on that bill.

Deep logic suggests that Shapiro's ability to completely ignore radius clauses and book MMJJ the night before Forest Hills is something to keep an eye on.  MMJ would have a much deeper impact and connection by headlining Lockn again as opposed to getting lost in the shuffle of a huge list of bands and genres at 'Roo.  I know there's history with 'Roo, but times and circumstances have changed.

So to be honest, I'm keeping an eye on Lockn and Forecastle - and perhaps NFF as potential Summer one-offs, with a confident eye on a Fall tour of multi-night stands.  Lots of signs pointing to an album in 2020, but part of me thinks maybe we'll see a live album spring 2020 first, with new album late 2020 or very early 2021.  The Fall tour would probably be best delivered and enjoyed by all if it didn't have new album pressure (just a guess - again, just deep logic)

The situation with the live album is very confusing. Those Beacon shows were in November 2015. They're going to release a live album of music that is over four years old? I just don't understand why it hasn't been released yet.

Thanks for the link.  I got excited that he was recording for new MMJ. Israel Nash is cool too, but not as cool obviously as MMJ.

Bring on some one offs and the fall multi nighters!  I can't believe 2020 will be as quiet as 2018 and 2019 especially after reading that article where Jim said the 2019 summer shows were his favorite Jacket shows ever.

How can I help this all get going? Do we need to start a campaign or petition? It is an election year. This is not a time to be idle.

I think the fact that this is an election year bodes well for a summer Jacket tour.

Facebook people seem to be pushing an August 28-29 run at the ole Red Rocks. No idea if it's reliable or not though one of the group mods is saying it so that's probably a decent source.

I'm one of the mods over there and have heard those dates since they played there last from a few people. My guess is it's been in hold and now maybe booked?

Late Summer/Fall tour.  That's been my guess all along

I think the most recent posts on Facebook are legitimate. I'm from CO but live in ME and I'm wondering if I'd be crazy to buy tickets back home right now for the last week of Aug. or not...

I'm not on FB so have no idea but are these the same people who said the Broomfield shows would be the last Jacket shows ever?   :tongue:
