Update: According to an issued press release, the U.S. shows are being billed as “An Evening With Wilco” and will feature “extended, varied sets exploring material” from each of the band’s seven studio albums. Speaking of studio albums, Billboard confirms that the band will be working on album #8 this month. Finally, it appears an appearance at Coachella is also a possibility; we’re attempting to receive confirmation.

If you haven’t noticed, there’s a whole lot of music going on. Bands are throwing out new LPs and most (if not all) of them are hitting the road, too. Now, Wilco can’t really offer the former, but the latter… oh they’re taking it to another fucking level.

Many fans will be pleased, especially those in FL, who’ve been pining for Jeff Tweedy and his friendly Chicagoans to visit since early last year. They’ll have a chance — two chances, actually — this time around as the band’s hitting up Miami Beach and Clearwater. (Hey, maybe they want some sun.) Also of note, two nights in Montclair, NJ at the Wellmont Theatre and a September slot Dorset, UK’s End of the Road Festival. No other summer dates yet, but one would be wise to pencil ’em in at major US festivals.

Hopefully this globe-spanning tour doesn’t stop the band from working on that alleged forthcoming studio effort, either. Some might want more after last year’s Wilco (The Album).
