Wilco will play mid-November concerts in St. Louis, MO and St. Paul, MN to close out their 2017 touring schedule. The shows – at The Pageant in St. Louis on Nov. 13 and at The Palace Theatre in St. Paul on Nov. 15 and 16 – will be the last chance for fans to see the band perform for a while, as it takes a hiatus from touring for most, if not all, of 2018 to record new material and for individual members to pursue other projects. Tickets are available to purchase Friday, Sept. 15 via wilcoworld.net.
In other news, Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy has once again partnered with soul and gospel singer, activist and Kennedy Center Honoree Mavis Staples on her new album, If All I Was Was Black.
“An incendiary soul album that wrestles with racism, violence, and division but ultimately insists on hope” (Entertainment Weekly), If All I Was Was Black will be released by Anti- Records on Nov. 11; its title track is streaming now at NPR Music. The album marks Tweedy’s third production collaboration with Staples and the first of songs composed by Tweedy entirely for Staples’ legendary voice.
Wilco is back on the road this month with concerts resuming Sept. 22 in Lincoln, NE and continuing with stops in Oklahoma, New Mexico, multiple concerts in Texas and more. Full dates follow. The band’s latest album, Schmilco, is available now on dBpm Records. Hailed as “emotionally resonant” and “quietly wondrous ” by The AV Club, it is the band’s 10th studio album.
