Wilco in Chicago (more by Matt Zeigler)
Wilco

"Levon was the glue, not just in The Band, but in all of what people think of when they think of North American music. He was a great unifier; a great glue. He unified blues and country, rural and city, and even North and South. Luckily he showed us all the way to keep it together and let it swing."- Jeff Tweedy
RIP Levon.

Wilco, missing Levon like the rest of us, have announced even more tour dates including two Celebrate Brooklyn shows at the Prospect Park Bandshell which happen right between the previously announced Camden and Rhode Island shows. The Brooklyn dates and openers are July 23 with Lee Fields & The Expressions and July 24 with Lee Ranaldo Band (of Sonic Youth). Tickets will go on pre-sale on May 2nd at 10AM EDT and regular sale on Friday at 10AM EDT.

Lee Ranaldo Band are doing a other few dates on the Wilco tour too and touring with M.Ward (who they play a sold out Webster Hall with). M. Ward also plays Prospect Park this summer, but with Yo La Tengo.

All tour dates for Lee Fields, Lee Ranaldo and Wilco are below, along with a recent video of Ranaldo interviewed/performing at his record release.

A lot of white folks going to Camden! On purpose! "Well, gee whiz, the GPS says this is the right place..."

7:56 don't think so...central park tickets were $10 a piece at showtime and this is the second go around on this album tour..

Right you are 8:27. Adding to that, 2 more nights are being announced for the 25 and 26 after these go. Watch and see.

8:40 4 nights in Brooklyn! Wow I would see all 4 and it would be like $5 a ticket! Bring it!

It's all been downhill since Summerteeth.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2012 9:56 AM

I'm 28 and I feel I'm usually on the older end of the crowd at shows. However, the last time I saw Wilco at Summerstage in the fall, some 55-year-old man fell on the ground in the middle of the crowd. The fucking loser still hadn't figured out how to pace his booze and drugs. Is this normal for a Wilco show? Is it usually baby-boomer central?

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2012 10:08 AM

^not in the slightest..NYC shows in general though have a mix of everyone

I'm hoping Nels Cline can do some double guitar duty between Lee and Wilco's sets - I'm psyched!

For the summerstage show I got a nice cheap ticket off stubhub just a couple hours before showtime. And I think I was near that old passed out dude, they had to carry him out. Fucking amatuer.

time for my 6th and 7th Wilco shows? i think so...

I saw my 6th and 7th Wilco shows in 2003. Step up your game.

"For the summerstage show I got a nice cheap ticket off stubhub just a couple hours before showtime. And I think I was near that old passed out dude, they had to carry him out. Fucking amatuer."

My thoughts exactly. I remember rolling my eyes and saying out loud "What a fucking loser." No one else seemed to agree though.

Wilco is the new Eagles.

Are there enough babysitters in Park Slope to cover the demand this show is going to create?

The presale tickets are sort of pricey $64 with the shipping.

Posted by anonymous | May 2, 2012 10:06 AM

not pricey when you consider the resale value brudda

Posted by Anonymous | May 2, 2012 10:19 AM

crazy, ticketmaster is actually cheaper than Frontgate. I got presale tix just to be sure, but WTF, I probably should have waited for TM. No advantage with GA tix.

Anybody know the password for tomorrow's (Thursday May 3rd) venue pre-sale for the Prospect Park shows?
I have to say Wilco is both the best band in the world, & the best live band in the world. I'd venture to also say that "The Whole Love" is my favorite album of theirs & that it's as great an album as has been released in the last 15-20 years.

thanks. saw that reserved seat drop down and thought it wouldn't be worth it as I been on the lawn at the park and it's pretty far away. didnt mind summerstage that much last year as long as you got there early. if it's all GA than thats not so bad.
