UPDATE 9/8 9 a.m. PT: After tickets for Wilco's two October shows at The Capitol
Theatre in Port Chester, NY sold out with a quickness, a third show has been added.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 10 at noon ET for Wilco's October 30
performance at the historic venue.
Earlier today we reported on Wilco's announcement that they will play a
of shows at The Ryman in Nashville, TN. There's more on the horizon for Jeff Tweedy
Co. as The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY will host Wilco on October 28 and 29.
In addition, the group will perform at The Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, TN on
October 23 and North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, NC
on October 25.
Tickets for all newly-announced shows go on sale this Friday, Sept. 5 at 10 a.m.
local times according to Wilco's website. Wilco made their live debut at Cicero's in St.
November 17, 1994; so this fall marks the band's 20th anniversary. While the sextet
has been off the road in 2014, they return to the stage tomorrow night at the LC
Pavilion in Columbus, OH.
Wilco has teamed with the venue, Ticketfly and HeadCount to support HeadCount's
#GoVote campaign at The Capitol Theatre on October 28 & 29. A portion of all ticket
sales from these shows will be donated to the organization to help drive voter
turnout for the mid-term elections this November. "This will make a huge difference
as we gear up for the elections in November. We are running a big get out the vote
initiative in the next two months. And every dollar translates into more people at
the polls,” said Andy Bernstein, HeadCount Executive Director, in a press release.
Ticketfly CEO Andrew Dreskin added, "It's exciting for me both personally and
professionally to partner with an organization that I love, a band that I love, and
one of the most spectacular venues around."
In other Wilco news, the band will appear on the October 27th episode of The
Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and have announced two forthcoming releases –
Wilco's first-ever Best Of collection and a Rarities box. More details on each will
be revealed soon, but a press release mentions the Rarities box will include tracks
culled from studio outtakes, B-sides and live recordings.
