Jeff Tweedy Working On Solo Album | Taste Of Chicago Headliner

Chicago's own Jeff Tweedy will headline the 2014 installment of Taste Of Chicago. Tweedy's appearance, which was announced by Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel on WXRT, will take place on Saturday, July 12 at the Petrillo Music Shell in Grant Park.

In addition to announcing Tweedy's appearance at Taste Of Chicago, Mayor Emanuel also broke the news that Jeff Tweedy is working on a new solo album. Unlike typical Tweedy solo shows, Jeff will be joined by a band he's putting together for his set in Grant Park.
