Wilco Announce 2015 North American Tour Dates
It’s been less than a week since Wilco dropped their brand-new surprise album, Star Wars, and now, the Jeff Tweedy-led outfit has already unveiled plans for a North American tour.
The new run of dates launches at the beginning of August with a show in Bridgeport, Conn., and concludes at the end of September with a two-night residency at Stubb’s in Austin on Sept. 29 and 30. Along the way, Wilco’s headlining gigs will feature opening acts Speedy Ortiz, Jenny Lewis, Vetiver and William Tyler.
Wilco also have a handful of festival appearances on the books, including Outside Lands in San Francisco, Toronto Urban Roots Festival, Cityfolk Festival in Ottawa and Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin, Tenn. Check out the complete itinerary below.
If you haven’t yet, you can still grab Star Wars -- which follows the band’s 2011 full-length, The Whole Love -- on Wilco’s website; it’ll remain available for free download until Aug. 13. You’ll be able to purchase the album on CD as early as Aug. 21, and a vinyl edition will arrive on Nov. 27.
