Bob Dylan Recruits My Morning Jacket & Wilco for "Americanarama" Tour

FUSE TV - Bob Dylan Recruits My Morning Jacket & Wilco for "Americanarama" Tour

Jim James recently said his band My Morning Jacket would join Bob Dylan for a summer tour, and that a third "beloved band" would also join the jaunt. Well, that band has been revealed—and it's Wilco. It doesn't get much better than that for fans of American roots rock—hey, the tour's even called "Americanarama." See the complete dates below; Wilco and MMJ join Dylan's never-ending trek in late June. 

Last week in a video interview (watch below) with Milwaukee's Journal Sentinel, James says he's returning to MMJ following the release of his solo album, Regions of Light and Sound of God. When asked who he'd love to play with, dead or alive, James responded, "George Harrison, Marvin Gaye... I'd love to play with Dylan... We'll open up for him this summer, so hopefully we can play a song together." Hopefully Wilco join in that jam, too.

Dylan is known for his work with other bands, including the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the Grateful Dead, which he recruited for his backing band on tour in the late-'80s. It resulted in a live album called Dylan & The Dead.

Cross your fingers for Dylan & His Morning Jacket..? Or Dylan & Wilco? Or... Dylan & Wilco Wear Morning Jackets?

James is a big Dylan fan. He appeared in the 2007 Dylan sort-of-biopic film I'm Not There, and has regularly covered Dylan's "Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You." Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy is also a big Dylan fan, who's covered his songs like "Simple Twist of Fate" regularly.

The Dylan-MMJ-Wilco tour will definitely be a summer must-see. Dylan's sets of late are more of a nostalgic, bucket-list box-check; performances of many of his classic tunes are unrecognizable in tempo and style. But Wilco and MMJ are two of the best live acts in the game, and a live collabo would be momentous. 

James discussed the secret behind MMJ's live sets with the Journal: "The live experience is such a beautiful experience. It's something that the internet will never kill," he said. "It's something we'll always have, as long as there are human beings living in bodies on earth, we'll have live music. It's such a wonderful thing to be a part of."
