Ray LaMontagne's Touring Band Is Basically My Morning Jacket

When Ray LaMontagne performs at the Toyota Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford on June 24, he'll be backed by four members of rock group My Morning Jacket, according to a Live Nation press release.

MMJ bassist Tom Blankenship, drummer Patrick Hallahan, guitarist Carl Broemel and keyboardist Bo Koster will accompany LaMontagne on his 2016 North American Tour, which kicks off in Cincinnati on June 10.

The tour, in support of LaMontagne's sixth studio album, Ouroboros (out on March 4), ends in Dallas on Sept. 24.

"We've been throwing this idea around for quite a few years now, and the stars have finally aligned," LaMontagne said in the release. "There has been such positive spiritual energy flowing throughout this entire project... There is some serious mojo surrounding this record and I think it’s going to be a very, very special run of shows."

The only MMJ member not on tour is singer Jim James, who co-produced Ouroboros, along with LaMontagne.

Tickets ($29.50-$69.50) for LaMontagne's Oakdale show go on sale beginning on March 4 at 10 a.m. through oakdale.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
