For those fans who didn't snag tickets to one of Wilco's five Chicago shows in one week last December, the band is heading up an all-local bill this summer at a larger venue -- a suburban baseball park.
Wilco will perform July 8 at the Fifth Third Bank Ballpark (home of the Kane County Cougars) in Geneva. Also on the bill: singer-songwriter Andrew Bird and Chicago soul band the Congregation.
"We had such a great time at our shows in December, but not everyone was able to get tickets," Wilco's Jeff Tweedy said in a statement today. "So this time, we've made sure that there will be plenty of room for everyone, so anyone who wants to can come out and have a great time with us."
The show's finale will be a fireworks display.
General admission tickets are $50 (children 4 and under are free) and go on sale at 10 a.m. April 7 via eTix.com, the Vic Theater box office (3145 N. Sheffield in Chicago) and at the ballpark box office.
