Last night Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy kicked off a 12-show solo acoustic tour at the Uptown Theater in
Kansas City, MO. Tweedy delivered plenty of Wilco songs along with a pair of tunes from his time
in Uncle Tupelo as well as a handful of selections from the Loose Fur project.
You can always count on Tweedy for interesting banter and according to a review from the
Kansas City Star last night was no exception. The Illinois native
"addressed someone up front who was causing some kind of commotion" after the third song
of the evening leading to "humorous verbal jousting" that even got into a brief discussion
of the late Jay Bennett. "He was my friend. Was he your friend? ... He would have hated
you," Tweedy told the fan according to the KC Star.
Jeff dusted off the unreleased Wilco track "One True Vine" in the middle of the set, which
Mavis Staples recorded as the title tune for her most recent Tweedy-produced studio album.
For his final song of the evening, the singer delivered "Acuff-Rose" without the aid of
amplification following a bit of a call-and-response segment during Wilco classic "A Shot
In The Arm."
Here's the setlist from last night's show:
