Jeff Tweedy Ditches Wilco for West Coast Solo Tour
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy looks set to head out alone this December for a short US tour.
Things are expected to kick off at Kansas City’s Uptown Theater on the 3rd, and I’m going to reproduce the dates here because it is such a short tour that calling it a tour makes me feel weird and fraud-like.
12/03 – Kansas City, Missouri – Uptown Theater
12/05 – Denver, Colorado – Paramount Theatre
12/06 – Salt Lake City, Utah – Kingsbury Hall
12/08 – Seattle, Washington – Moore Theatre
12/10 – Davis, California – Robert and Margit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts
12/11 – San Francisco, California – The Fillmore
12/12 – San Francisco, California – The Fillmore
12/13 – Santa Barbara, California – Granada Theatre
12/15 – Los Angeles, California – Largo at the Coronet
12/16 – Los Angeles, California – Largo at the Coronet
12/18 – Los Angeles, California – Largo at the Coronet
12/19 – Los Angeles, California – Largo at the Coronet
Tweedy will be accompanying Wilco for his day job by playing Austin City Limits festival next month, but according to a press release these “will be the last Wilco shows for many months.”
I mean, if I’m completely 100% honest, “many months” doesn’t inspire much concern because like, don’t loads of bands take mini hiatus for periods of months at a time? If the press release had said “these will be the last Wilco shows for many years” or “these will be the last Wilco shows for…ever” then I reckon the internet would probably be stressing out more. But to each to his own.
