Wilco Announce Three New Special 2012 Summer Concerts
Jeff Tweedy and company will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo., on June 22-23, with the Punch Brothers providing support on the first night and Dr. Dog opening a day later. Diehards interested in attending both shows can buy a travel package that includes lodging for around $1,000.
The other new gig takes place on July 8 at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva, Ill. — home of the Kane County Cougars minor league baseball team – with Andrew Bird and the Congregation. After the concert, fans will be treated to a fireworks display. A pre-sale for all three shows begins April 4.
Wilco are touring behind their latest release, 2011′s ‘The Whole Love,’ which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album earlier this year but lost out to Foo Fighters‘ ‘Wasting Light.’ The band begins a U.S. tour in May, followed by several European festival dates in August.
