The CD and vinyl versions of Wilco’s 2022 album, Cruel Country, are finally arriving this week, and to celebrate, the band has announced a new run of spring tour dates and shared a video chronicling a recent series of pop-up shows in Chicago.
The band’s upcoming tour will kick off with a pair of three-night residencies, the first at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago (March 23, 25, and 26) and the second at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York (March 30, 31, and April 1). Following a previously-announced run of shows in Iceland, Wilco will return to the States for a trek that kicks off April 16 at the High Water Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, and wraps April 30 at the Ohio University Templeton Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium in Athens, Ohio.
Horsegirl will provide support during Wilco’s residencies in Chicago and Port Chester (the band is also promising “no repeats” during those gigs). And the A’s will open for Wilco during the rest of their North American run. Tickets for all newly-announced dates will go on sale this Friday, Jan. 20, at 10 a.m. local time. Full info is available on Wilco’s website.
Along with announcing their spring tour itinerary, Wilco shared a 15-minute video documenting the three pop-up shows they played at Carol’s Pub, a famous late-night honky tonk in Chicago, last October. The video includes performances of “A Story To Tell,” “I Am My Mother,” “Cruel Country,” and “Falling Apart (Right Now).”
Wilco also announced the return of Wilcoworld Radio, which will be streaming online today through Jan. 24. The digital station will feature DJ hours from each member of Wilco, rare and unheard recordings of recent live shows, Wilco cover sets, a deep dive into Cruel Country with Jeff Tweedy, and a behind-the-scenes look at the recent 20th-anniversary reissue of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.
