Wilcowith special guest Joan Shelley
Live Nation and Massey Hall present
Formed in 1994 out of the ashes of beloved alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, who the Wall Street Journal called “among the greatest bands of its era — or any era,” comes through Toronto in the wake of the release of Schmilco, the band’s 10th album. An “intentionally loose affair,” according to the band, the record has been called “sad, quiet, risky, and great” by Vulture, and “quietly wondrous” by the A.V. Club.
From its roots in alt-country, to forays into indie-rock, power-pop and more, the band is well-known for pushing the envelope while garnering critical and audience acclaim. The band has won a Grammy Award (2004’s A Ghost is Born) and four nominations – including their 1998 collaboration with English singer-songwriter Billy Bragg that brought the unrecorded lyrics of Woody Guthrie to life for Mermaid Avenue – as well as three albums that peaked in the top five of the Billboard charts and Gold-certification for the universally-praised Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which remains their best-selling record – and one that was almost never released. Meanwhile, Nels Cline and Glenn Kotche appeared, respectively, in Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Guitarists and Drummers of All Time lists, and the band’s biennial Solid Sound Festival is a highlight of the summer-events calendar.
