Load remaining images Rockers My Morning Jacket returned to the Iroquois Amphitheater in Louisville, KY last night, playing the second of two consecutive sold-out shows in the hometown venue. MMJ put on a great show for night one, bringing out a handful of 2016 debuts and ending their main set with a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain. Night two brought more of the same excitement, as the band continued to bring out unexpected material to delight their local fans.Notably, there were no repeats between the two shows, as the band drew on their extensive catalog to reward those who attended back-to-back nights. MMJ brought out a grand total of eight songs played for the first debuts, including “Touch Me I’m Going To Scream, Pt. 1,” “Golden,” “State Of The Art (A.E.I.O.U),” “Run Thru,” “Dancefloors,” “Cobra,” “Highly Suspicious,” and “Anytime.” Mixing songs new and old, MMJ delivered a great set through and through.However, some of biggest highlights came in the eight-song encore, which saw the return of Prince’s “Raspberry Beret” as well as a bust out of the Purple One’s “I Could Never Take My Eyes Off Of You,” which MMJ hadn’t played since September 11, 2012. Not only that, but the encore also featured the band’s debut of David Bowie’s classic tune, “Young Americans.” It must have made for touching tribute to a pair of beloved artists.The band heads to Atlanta, GA tonight to perform at the Shaky Knees Festival.
