I Am Trying to Break Your Tour Van

Wilco to Tour U.S., Spain, and Portugal This Spring

In support of their forthcoming DVD, Ashes of American Flags (due out on April 18th at indie retailers for Record Store Day, two weeks later for everywhere else), the hardest working band in show ‘bidness’, Wilco has announced a U.S. tour and a jaunt through Spain and Portugal that starts in April, and lasts through June. I know, I know nary a Canadian date; I think we can count on those though when the new record is released later this year. Then again- you know you’ve always wanted to go to Barcelona…

The band's run of U.S. dates is preceded by a pair of Tweedy solo dates in March, and Akron/Family join Wilco for a pair of dates in Spain in late May.
