Wilco Tickets on Sale Tomorrow
A reminder, tickets for the recently announced Wilco benefit show for victims of Hurricane Katrina go on sale tomorrow at 11am. Unless, of course, you've got the money to shell out for a VIP box...those are on sale now here. (tell 'em RFC sent ya!) Unlike the Pearl Jam benefit show at House of Blues a couple of weeks ago, at least this show is affordable to the general public, with tickets ranging from $35 to $50. (although, you have to buy them through Ticketbastard, so count on paying another 7-10 bucks more each) Speaking of Jeff Tweedy, his former partner in Uncle Tupelo, Jay Farrar, will be in town on Saturday for a Sun Volt gig at The Vic. Think Jay will wake up early to be one of the first in line to buy tickets to the Wilco benefit? Finally, in other Wilco news...the latest release date from Wilcoword.net on the forthcoming Live in Chicago DVD is November 15. In case you haven't heard, it's a 23 song collection of live Wilco jams collected from the three nights (sheduled specifically for recording purposes) they played in May at the Vic.
