It’s only been three years since beloved Chicago alt rock outfit Wilco released their tenth LP, Schmilco, and only two since the group last toured, but given all of their individual activity since (and their prolific schedule in the few years prior), it feels like much longer. Frontman Jeff Tweedy, particularly, has been incredibly active, releasing a memoir and pair of solo albums, and hitting the road in support, even passing through town earlier this year to play TPAC.
As Tweedy’s activity winds down, Wilco’s is gearing to wind back up, and after a previously-announced European tour this summer, the band have just confirmed a fall trek of dates stateside as well, including an Oct. 20 headliner at the Grand Ole Opry House. The show marks Wilco’s first Nashville area appearance since the inaugural Pilgrimage Festival in 2015, and first headliner since a pair of Ryman dates the year prior. No news on whether we can expect new music this year as well, but with the group back in action, it feels like a forgone conclusion that an album will soon follow.
