If you’re a Wilco fan and you happen to live in Chicago, then you’re the luckiest Wilco fan. For years, Jeff Tweedy and co. have kept their local audiences fat and happy with multiple residencies, intimate performances, and jaw-dropping setlists.
That’s a tradition they’re keeping alive as Wilco have just announced their next round of Winterlude shows for the Windy City. This time around, they’re setting up shop at the Chicago Theatre for three performances: February 22nd, 23rd, and 25th.
The dates mark their first appearances following their current European tour and will be more or less a warm up to their performances at Tennessee’s Big Ears Festival in March. Not to mention, their own Solid Sound Festival in June.
A pre-sale for the Chicago dates begins Wednesday, November 16th with a general on-sale set to kick off on November 18th. If you plan on grabbing tickets, know these babies tend to heat up and fly away fast.
It goes without saying they’ll be supporting their latest effort, Schmilco. Revisit our exclusive cover story with the band and brush up on their new stage show with our equally exclusive tour interview.
Plenty of Wilco to go around.
