Wilco have added additional dates to their upcoming fall North American tour.

In addition to a second New York show at Brooklyn Steel on October 13th, the 29-date tour will now run through November. After two back-to-back live tapings at Austin’s Moody Theater, the band will hit Grand Rapids on November 4th. They’ll make stops in major cities — from Pittsburgh to Denver, before wrapping up in Omaha on November 20th. They’re also set to play their very own Sky Blue Sky Festival in Mexico in January.

Not only is this Wilco’s first North American tour since 2017, its also marks their return from their year-long hiatus, which the band took when drummer Glenn Kotche’s wife Miiri was awarded a Fulbright scholarship. In that time, frontman Jeff Tweedy has released a memoir and two solo albums.

“I think [the hiatus] revitalized everyone’s energy for the band, and our interest in pushing forward and not just resting on some past output,” Tweedy recently told Rolling Stone. “Everybody in the band is pretty ambitious. It’s good to let go of something that’s a huge, identifying part of your life, and realize that you still have deep affection for it and a deep interest in having it be a living, breathing entity capable of surprising you.”

General tickets go on sale Tuesday, July 2nd via Wilco’s website.
