Back on Thanksgiving weekend, I went to see night two of Wilco’s Thanksgiving Day homecoming shows. This was my second time seeing the band and I’ve since become a lot more comfortable with their later material, much of what they’re touring around today. I left the show feeling fulfilled and happy.
During the show, though — their humble (and yet not humble) frontman Jeff Tweedy announced that the band didn’t have any immediate touring plans for 2007. The crowd kinda bummed out on that. Jeff went all Debbie Downer.
And then here he goes announcing some solo tour dates for January 2007.
16 – Memphis, TN – Germantown Performing Arts Center
17 – Nashville, TN – James K. Polk Theater
19 – Tulsa, OK – Cain’s Ballroom
20 – Dallas, TX – Granada Theater
21 – Marfa, TX – Liberty Hall
23 – Austin, TX – Hogg Auditorium
26 – New Orleans, LA – House of Blues
29 – Atlanta, GA – The Tabernacle
30 – Knoxville, TN – Bijou Theatre
31 – Charlottesville, VA – The Paramount Theatre
I’m sure he’ll announce more — there’s nothing too logical about these dates except the fact that they’re all in the South. Yeah, I’m sure he’ll announce more.
