    Wilco to Live Webcast Two Shows from Sold-Out US Tour

    Wilco's current North American tour, An Evening with Wilco, may be fully sold-out, but that doesn't mean you'll have to go without. Fans with or without tickets to these intimate sets will be able to experience two upcoming concerts this week live and online, as the band's website, wilcoworld.net, will be broadcasting Tuesday's show from Boston's Orpheum Theatre and the Wednesday show from the Capitol Center in Concord, New Hampshire. Visit the Roadcase section of the site on those nights to take in what have proven to be some monumental, three-plus-hour sets.

    Relix described the tour opener in Miami as "a spirited rock-and-roll blowout," saying: "Wilco delivered." The band's recent stop at the Durham Performing Arts Center was an "unforgettable experience," says the Raleigh Telegram. "Amid winding guitar solos and impeccably coordinated lighting effects," writes the Telegram's Alexandra Gehringer, "Jeff Tweedy reminded old fans why they still love him and gave new fans a sort of Cliff’s Notes to Wilco—showcasing 15 years worth of the band’s best sing-along classics and cult favorite B-sides—all in about three hours."

    Another way to enjoy the live Wilco experience is via the band's 2005 live album, Kicking Television, which is due out for the first time on vinyl just in time for Record Store Day, April 17. The LP box set includes an audiophile, 180-gram vinyl pressing of the album on four discs with eight previously unreleased bonus tracks and a fold-out commemorative poster. You can pre-order it now in the Nonesuch Store and receive the original album tracks as 320 kbps MP3s at no additional cost.

Greetings and best wishes Nonesuch and Wilco! I am attempting to watch the live webcast on wilcoworld.net right now and either it is audio only or the video is not working properly on my Mac Book Pro in either Firefox or Safari. At this point I am thinking that it is intended to be audio only in which case it would have been nice/appropriate if you had specified that in the announcement. This being said, the audio mix is great, the show is rocking, and I'm appreciative to have it for free! I hope that you do more of this in the future and I would happily pay for a good live video stream!

best regards,
