Wilco will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed record, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, performing the album in full at a run of shows in New York City and Chicago in April.
The Chicago-based band will also unveil a series of archival Yankee Hotel Foxtrot re-releases later this year, with details forthcoming.
Wilco released Yankee Hotel Foxtrot in April 2002. Rolling Stone‘s David Fricke called the album “an earthy, moving psychedelia, eleven iridescent-country songs about surviving a blown mind and a broken heart,” adding: “This is an honest, vivid chaos, and it tells a good story.”
Last fall, Wilco was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame. To celebrate, the group invited a star-studded group of guest performers —including Margo Price, Rosanne Cash and Sheila E. — onstage for a rendition of “California Stars.”
Tickets for the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot anniversary shows go on sale to the public Friday, Feb. 11 at 11 a.m. EST via Wilco’s website.
