Wilco announces Wilco Winterlude Chicago residency, 77-track rarities box set


    In December, Wilco will stage the aptly titled Wilco Winterlude, a six-night residency at the Riviera Theatre in the band’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois. As WXRT reports, each performance will feature a different setlist comprising songs from every era of the band’s two-decade career.

    The residency is part of WXRT’s Holiday Concert For the Kids. Concertgoers are urged to bring toys and books to the show, which will then be donated to Chicago area children’s hospitals.

    In the interim, Wilco has a few other dates scheduled across the US in October. The jaunt coincides with the band’s 20th anniversary.


    Other planned festivities include the release of two archival box sets. The first, Alpha Mike Foxtrot, spans four discs and compiles 77 (!) rare studio and live recordings. The second, What’s Your 20, is a collection of greatest hits culled from the band’s eight studio albums. Both compilations will be released on November 27th through Nonesuch Records and pre-orders are now ongoing through the band’s website. Orders of Alpha Mike Foxtrot include a free instant download of “A Magazine Called Sunset”. See the full tracklists below.
