My Morning Jacket Thrill With Epic Bonnaroo Set, Capped With Motley Crue Cover

By |

With a steady stream of rain coming down, My Morning Jacket hit the stage at Bonnaroo around midnight Friday night, and didn't make their final exit until after 4 a.m., 35 songs later. The Jacket played cuts from their hot new disc, Evil Urges — among them, "I'm Amazed," "Sec Walkin" and "Highly Suspicous" — and dipped into their catalog with "Gideon." Metallica's Kirk Hammett joined in for a blistering solo on "One Big Holiday," and the band also dipped in some funk classics like Kool & the Gang's "Get Down On It," James Brown's "Cold Sweat" and Funkadelic's "Hit It and Quit It." The thousands who soldiered on until the end, undaunted by rain, caught a magical performance of Mötley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home," featuring comedian/dancer Zach Galifianakis dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood.
