As of now, Wilco's scheduled spring tour -- set to kick off April 21st at the Blue Note in Columbia, Missouri, and conclude two weeks later at the Coachella festival in California -- is still on. However, the band's new album, A Ghost Is Born, has been bumped back to June 22nd. "Nonesuch [Records] moved the record back two weeks to accommodate treatment and recovery," says Wilco publicist Deb Bernadini.
A European promotional tour set for last week was canceled to give Tweedy the chance to get treatment, but the band's only scheduled European date, a May 28th engagement in Barcelona, is still in place and a spring European tour is being planned.
