Wilco Weekend: Happy Holiday.
Happy Labor Day weekend greetings brought to you by Wilco. Wilco.
We've got a few announcements and then we're gonna get out of here and fire up the grills for what could be the last time this summer as a world tour awaits. So with that in mind, (Glenn: a drumroll please) here is the next group of North American tour dates. Ticketing info will follow in a week or so.
Nov. 29: Dallas TX Music Hall at Fair Park
Dec. 1: Austin TX Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater
Dec. 3: Kansas City MO Uptown Theater
Dec. 4: West Des Moines IA Val Air Ballroom
Dec. 6 & 7: Minneapolis, MN State Theatre
Dec. 9: Milwaukee, WI Riverside Theater
Dec. 10: Detroit, MI Fillmore Detroit
Dec. 12: Chicago, IL Civic Opera House
Also, less than 150 tickets are left for the September shows in Indy, Toronto (both nights) and Boston. And for all of our North American tour dates (in case you missed the announcement on Facebook and Twitter), we're starting the Fan Video Project this week. Details here (in short, we want you to create a video stage backdrop for the band).
If that isn't enough, we're gonna do a special under-the-radar stream of the new record tomorrow for Wilcoworld only. Here's the deal -- as a reward for your labors, ours, and those of our forefathers/mothers -- starting at 12 Noon Central time tomorrow (Saturday) and for 24 hours straight we're gonna stream The Whole Love in its entirety, at wilcoworld.net. That's right. Your first chance to hear the whole thing is tomorrow. Trust us, you'll be glad you made time to check it out.
Next up, The Whole Love is officially out and in stores on September 27 -- which is less than a month away. Have you preordered yours yet? If not, you can at our store, iTunes, the ANTI- Records store, Amazon and many indie retailers. We suggest you give a listen, maybe check out a couple of the videos we have up on the site, and then pull the trigger and order one for yourself and maybe a couple more for holiday gifts. What the heck, may as well get an early start, right?
More soon. Have a great holiday weekend.
Cheers (sound of bottles & cans opening....)
