Wilco Postpones 2 Shows

From www.wilcoworld.net:

We're sorry to report that our good friend and Wilco guitarist extraordinaire Nels Cline has recently contracted a rather nasty case of the CHICKEN POX (not sure that should be in all caps... but judging from the gruesome details in email correspondence we've had with NC, we'll leave it so). He is slowly on the mend but is not quite there yet, necessitating postponement of the Duluth, Minnesota show scheduled for this Tuesday night. That date will be rescheduled for Tuesday, September 4 and all tickets for the original date will be honored. Refunds will also be available to those of you unable to attend the September 4 show.

The show scheduled for this Wednesday in Winnipeg, Manitoba has also been cancelled, and will be rescheduled for some time in 2008. Refunds will be available at point of purchase. We will post more details as they become available.

We apologize for the inconvenience... but we're really glad Nels seems to be over the hump and hope to see you out there soon.

bdouglas, I was thinking the exact same thing!

Luckily/unluckily, I'm only doing the Red Rocks show, so I might be able to pull off Wilco on that Saturday night. Just not sure if a Rollinsgrass>Wilco>Yonder run is going to be in the financial future...

I heard Tweedy has a bad case of "frog in the throat", he caught it from Alfalfa. Actually when an adult gets Chicken pox it messes you up big time.
