Wilco To Be Featured on "The Colbert Report"
As if good ol' Stephen Colbert wasn't enough to make you watch "The Colbert Report," this Thursday the wonderful Wilco lads will be the special musical guest. Set to perform one song, the Chicago rockers follow a long line of quality live music on The Report including The Roots, R.E.M., Nas, Feist, the Decemberists and many more. The program airs this Thursday, October 30, on Comedy Central at 10:30 p.m. EDT.
The Report gig begins a nice little tour for Wilco that includes a Concert for Change in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, November 1 before they do a leg supporting Neil Young in December.
And if you haven't done so already, be sure to get your free download of Wilco and Fleet Foxes doing Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" here.
