Wilco Confirms 2009 Plans
Wilco has outlined its 2009 plans, including the release of its first concert DVD, Ashes of American Flags. Recorded during Wilcos most recent February tour, the DVD was put together by Brendan Canty and Christoph Green at Trixie Films (_Sunken Treasure_, Burn to Shine) and is said to include material recorded at Tulsa, OKs Cain’s Ballroom and Nashville, TNs The Ryman, among other venues. After running through their entire canon in Chicago earlier in the month, the members of Wilco offered a number of rare shows while on the road this past February.
In addition, after the holidays Wilco will head back to The Loft to resume work on its next studio album, which is expected to hit stores this spring. After hibernating in the studio through March, the group plans to hit the road for a tour of the southern US this April and an extensive tour of Spain this May, followed by, most likely, the usual summer hijinks with a new record and gigs everywhere imaginable.
