Wilcoworld Radio Returns Friday, Jeff Tweedy Announces New Tour
Wilcoworld Radio, the original live global streaming radio broadcast created by Wilco and dBpm Records, will launch its second installment Fri., June 15 at 6 pm CT and air worldwide, continuously throughout the weekend, via wilcoworld.net.
Featuring an exclusive song-by-song annotation by Nels Cline on his newly-released Blue Note album Currents, Constellations, a guided record store crawl through Memphis and Nashville with Patrick Sansone, a live recording of Jeff Tweedy's recent show in Dublin that includes the new song "Don't Forget," a guest DJ set by WFUV's Rita Houston and more, the broadcast compiles more than seven hours of Wilco-centric music and conversation and airs five times throughout the weekend: Fri. @ 6pm CT / Sat., Sun. @ 6 am + 6pm CT.
In other news, Jeff Tweedy will embark on a North American solo tour in support of his latest release, Together At Last, which The Guardian heralded as "an earthy acoustic reassessment of songs from throughout a storied songwriting career, spelunking into Wilco's sprawling back catalogue and shining a light on songs from Tweedy's various spin-offs and side-hustles."
Beginning Sept. 19 in Milwaukee, WI, the tour makes stops in Minneapolis, MN, Bozeman, MT, Vancouver, BC, Portland, OR, San Francisco, CA and more. The final performance will be at The Ace in Los Angeles on Oct. 8. Complete tour dates are below. Tickets will be available beginning this Thus., June 14 at 7 pm local.
"The Wilco frontman's stripped-back performance is a joy from start to finish, and evidence of a true indie master at work." - The Skinny (UK)
Wilcoworld Radio debuted in February and was created in part to celebrate the newly-reissued versions of Wilco's first two albums, A.M. and Being There. Like it's predecessor, the latest installment features celebrity bumpers and jingles produced by Loft studio manager Mark Greenberg.
