Wilco Add More Dates

WILCO ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOURING SCHEDULE
PLUS KNOXVILLE IN-STORE APPEARANCE, NEW CONCERT DVD, FREE DOWNLOAD AND MORE

Wilco
Wilco have unveiled new concert dates as part of their upcoming North American summer tour. The newest dates include performances at The Joint in Las Vegas, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO, Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA, Maine State Pier in Portland, ME and Art Park in Lewiston, NY. Additionally they will play concerts at four East Coast ballparks: Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, DE, LeLacheur Park in Lowell, MA, Keyspan Park in Brooklyn, NY and Dutchess County Stadium in Wappingers Falls, NY.

Previously announced shows on their summer tour include stops in Cincinnati, Oklahoma City, El Paso, Tucson, Pomona, Los Angeles, Berkeley and more. A full list of tour dates follows.

Nonesuch Records will release the band's new concert DVD, Ashes of American Flags, on Saturday, April 18 at independent retailers nationwide as part of national Record Store Day. The DVD will also be available on that day from wilcoworld.net and nonesuch.com. A broader release through iTunes, Amazon and chain retail outlets will follow on April 28. A trailer can be viewed by visiting wilcoworld.net or www.ashesofamericanmovie.com.

To celebrate the DVD release and to lend support to independent record stores, the band will make an in-store appearance at Disc Exchange in Knoxville, TN on Saturday, April 18 at 2 p.m. Also as an exclusive bonus to anyone purchasing Ashes of American Flags before April 28, one complete concert drawn from a show featured in the film will be available for audio download. This exclusive concert download will only be available via an embedded link on the DVD from April 18 to April 27. This is in addition to the 20 full songs featured in the DVD and downloadable to everyone who purchases it.

Ashes of American Flags is produced and directed by Christoph Green and Fugazi's Brendan Canty and shot in five quintessentially American venues - Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, OK, Tipitina's in New Orleans, LA, The Mobile Civic Center in Mobile, AL, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN and the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. Mixing live concert footage with band interviews, it takes the viewer behind the scenes of Wilco's 2008 U.S. tour capturing both the expansive experience of rolling across America in a tour bus and the intimacy that happens night after night between the members of Wilco and the music they make, and between the band and their fans who come to experience it with them. Shot in High Definition, Ashes of American Flags is a Trixie production in association with Nonesuch Records and dBpm, Inc.

Wilco have just completed work on their seventh studio album. The as-yet-untitled disc is scheduled for a late June release. Produced by Wilco and Jim Scott, it is the follow up to 2007's Sky Blue Sky.

Vienna, Va that's my hometown! lots of undercover cops in the lot because it's on federal ground so be careful...i learned the hard way at a JBT and G. Love show. The venue is beautiful though.

Yes, please complain about no love for Chicago when they give you 5 night runs of their entire collection of music featuring different guests every year.
