Tour Dates | Jeff Tweedy Solo Acoustic & Band

Last month Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel revealed that Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy is working on a solo album and would be backed by a new band at Taste Of Chicago on July 12. Today, Tweedy has announced the names of the members of the  band that he will front in Chicago and at other solo performances, more of which were added this afternoon.

According to today’s announcement, the show will “be loosely staged in two parts” with a band consisting of Jeff, his son Spencer Tweedy on drums, Jim Elkington on guitar, Darin Gray on bass and Liam Cunningham on keyboards performing songs off the soon-to-be-released solo album and a part with the usual Tweedy solo acoustic takes on tunes from his Wilco/Uncle Tupelo solo catalog. The newly-added dates include shows in Milwaukee, Tulsa, Austin and Nashville. Tickets for the new shows go on sale to the general public on May 23, with a Wilco World pre-sale set for May 21.
