If you’ve been waiting for Wilco to play indoors, today is your lucky day.
The rock veterans announced this morning that they’ll be performing at the no-longer-newly-renovated Palace Theatre in St. Paul on Nov. 15 and 16. This’ll be the first time Jeff Tweedy and the gang have played in the Twin Cities with a roof over their heads since 2011.
Wilco was just in Minneapolis in August 2016 for a big, wet Halls Island show, and they played the Basilica Block Party the previous summer. In 2013, of course, they played with Bob Dylan (who announced a St. Paul show of his own this morning) at Midway Stadium.
But you’ve got to go all the way back the first Obama administration (how young we were then) for Wilco’s last indoor performance in the Twin Cities – a December 2011 show at the State Theatre.
Tickets are $50 and go on sale this Friday, Sept. 15, at 10 a.m. You can get 'em online at etix.com and palacestpaul.com, in person at select ticket outlets, or by phone at 1-800-514-3849.
This could be your last chance to see the band for an unspecified but not insignificant number of months. According to a press release, Wilco will take a “hiatus from touring for most, if not all, of 2018.” (Well, which is it?)
