Alt-folk legends Wilco are set to return to New Zealand for two shows next year in April in support of their eighth studio album The Whole Love. Jeff Tweedy and co. were last here in 2009 for a stellar show at Auckland’s Civic Theatre, and this time around they will play the Auckland Town Hall as well as the Wellington Town Hall. Wilco are widely regarded as one of the finest live acts around, and after seeing them in the flesh twice I can attest that this reputation is well-deserved, and if you get the opportunity to see them live you should definitely do so (their excellent Ashes of American Flags live DVD is also a must-see).
Check out the dates and ticketing details below:
Friday 5th April – Wellington Town Hall
Saturday 6th April – Auckland Town Hall
Presales are available Tuesday 30th and Wednesday 31st October through Much More Music.
