Wilco reveals spring run through the South
Alt-rock mainstay Wilco has announced plans to hit the tour trail next spring, confirming a handful of Southern shows.
The Chicago-based outfit will follow up a just-completed winter residency in Chicago begin with a quick run through the South. The journey kicks off with an April 22 concert in Dallas, TX, and four more dates follow, including an April 23 show in Houston and three Florida stops through early May.
Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow (12/19).
The group's itinerary also features their own three-day festival, Solid Sound, which takes place June 26-28 in North Adams, MA.
Wilco most recently released its eighth studio effort, "The Whole Love," in late 2011. The 12-track set, which was unveiled on the band's own dBpm label, earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album.
Tweedy will begin the New Year on the road with his son Spencer and their side project, aptly titled Tweedy. The European trek, which will include touring musicians Darin Gray (bass), Jim Elkington (guitar) and Liam Cunningham (keys/guitar), supports the pair's September debut, "Sukierae."
