The announcement comes a mere 10 months since their last visit when they recorded with Neil Finn and some of the world’s best musicians for the 7 Worlds’ Collide project and inspired the landscape and warm weather stayed on to record the “meat and bones” of their U.S. Billboard Top 5 album WIilco (the album)!

Heralded by critics everywhere as “the world’s most exciting rock band”, their live set clocks in at over two hours and is a spell-binding journey through their rich and inspiring catalogue of tunes. With seven studio albums to their credit WILCO will present a selection from their familiar past, as well as songs from this years outstanding self- titled release Wilco (the album).

This album is the follow-up to 2007’s Grammy nominated Sky Blue Sky, which was the first Wilco recording with the band’s current line-up: Jeff Tweedy (guitar and vocals); John Stirratt (bass); Nels Cline (guitar); Glenn Kotche (drums); Pat Sansone (multiple instruments); and Mikael Jorgenson (keyboards).

Alongside the new album release Wilco have had a busy year touring America and the UK, releasing a documentary style concert DVD Ashes of American Flags and readying their full back catalogue to be made available on vinyl LP for the first time ever!

A show not to be missed, Wilco are a band who have continued to grow artistically, continued to make great records, and continue to deliver live shows that are a unique and rewarding experience.
