About this Album

"It's the best it's ever felt," said Jeff Tweedy of these Wilco performances recorded at Chicago's Vic Theatre May 4-7, 2005. Rolling Stone calls Kicking Television “a love letter to Wilco's dedicated fans and a definitive live statement from America's foremost rock impressionists.”

This Kicking Television LP box set includes an audiophile, 180-gram vinyl pressing of the album on four discs, featuring eight previously unreleased bonus tracks, and a fold-out commemorative poster modeled after the Chicago skyline.
