Wilco Announce South America Shows, 5 Nights at Fillmore/San Fran, 3 Nights at Ace/LA

The time has come for Wilco to announce their long-anticipated tour of South America in October.

“It’s not an understatement to say our South American fans are among our most enthusiastic in the world,” Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy said. “We hear from them often, and many of them have made trips to see Wilco in places far from their homes. They’ve been waiting patiently a long time for us to come there, and I am happy to say the wait is over. Get ready South America! We’ll be there soon!”

In its 21-year history Wilco has performed just once in South America, in 2005 at Rio de Janeiro’s TIM Festival. The October tour combines festival appearances and headlining concerts in Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina. (Full dates below.)

Just prior to the South American tour a brief headlining run in September brings Wilco to the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco for a five-night stand, as well as three shows at Los Angeles’ Ace Theatre, plus additional concerts in Salt Lake City, Boise, Seattle and Portland.

Wilco’s summer touring kicks off in a couple weeks, with shows in West Virginia, Hunter, NY and Philadelphia before the band heads to Europe for much of June and July. Among many concert dates, the band makes debut appearances in Montenegro and Poland. In late July, Wilco takes a quick visit to Japan for a headlining spot at Fuji Rock and then finishes the summer with a run of dates in the North American Midwest including a homecoming show at Chicago’s Millennium Park on August 21. Later in the year Wilco returns to Europe with a tour that culminates in a special night at London’s Brixton Academy on November 19.
