Wilco Announce Fall 2015 Tour Dates

Wilco made headlines last week when they pulled a super sneaky move and released their brand new album, Star Wars without anyone’s knowledge.

A few days after the release of the new record, the indie band have announced plans to head out on the road beginning in August in support of the new album.

The tour will kick off on Aug. 1 at the Gathering of the Vibes Festival in Bridgeport, CT. The trip will then wrap up with the Chicago group performing two nights (Sept. 29 and 30) at Austin’s Stubb’s. Supporters for the tour, which will alternate, include Jenny Lewis, Vetiver, Speedy Ortiz, and William Tyler.

The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below which also includes a couple of music festivals such as Toronto’s Urban Roots Festival and Ottawa’s CityFolk Festival.

Bob Dylan Announces Upcoming Tour


Bob Dylan announced yesterday that this Summer he’ll be doing what all the cool kids are doing and head out on his Americanarama Festival of Music. Along for the ride will be Wilco and My Morning Jacket.

The announcement came via Dylan’s website where the festival’s logo appeared with “Meet me there – Beat me there!” written. But Dylan, his band, Wilco and My Morning Jacket aren’t the only ones that will be performing; on selected dates, the Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Ryan Bingham will be joining the fun.

While news of this came as a nice surprise, it shouldn’t have come as one because last Thursday, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James sort of dropped the news during a Record Store Day interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

As of right now, the tour is slated to start on June 26th in West Palm Beach, FL and end on August 4th in Mountain View, CA. Tickets for the upcoming tour will start pre-sales on Wednesday, April 24.
