Wilco to Perform at the Hollywood Bowl, 9/30

WILCO performs at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday, September 30, 2012, at 7 p.m. The acclaimed Chicago sextet appears in support of its latest release, the Grammy-nominated The Whole Love.

“Quite simply, this is the work of a great band at the peak of their powers, and The Whole Love is a joy to hear…confirming once again that Wilco is as good a band as America can claim in the 21st century.” - All Music

The band’s reputation as a live powerhouse continues to grow: “Wilco’s new millennial emergence as an avant-garde Americana juggernaut now grooves a newfound equilibrium. Never has this band been so comfortable and confident live…. These boys, often in a three-guitar front line (hello Skynyrd), live to make noise…” – Austin Chronicle

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jeff Tweedy formed Wilco in the mid-1990s. The Whole Love is the third album by the band’s current lineup, which solidified in 2004 when guitarist Nels Cline and guitarist/keyboardist PatRick Sansone joined Tweedy, founding bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glenn Kotche and keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen. Together, they released Sky Blue Sky in 2007 and the Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album) in 2009. Wilco has won Grammy awards for its 2004 release A Ghost is Born in the Best Alternative Album and Best Recording Package categories. Wilco?s Jeff Tweedy won a Grammy award as producer for Mavis Staples 2010 album You Are Not Alone.

Wilco has released 10 studio albums to date, including Mermaid Avenue Volumes 1 & 2, which, in collaboration with British folk singer Billy Bragg, set original music to song lyrics by the truest of American icons, songwriter Woody Guthrie.

Wilco’s dBpm Records is a full-service label releasing all future Wilco recordings and more. ANTI-Records provides distribution and additional label services for all dBpm releases. In 2010 Wilco, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, created the Solid Sound Festival, a three-day event of music, art, comedy and culture. The festival returns to MASS MoCA in June 2013.
