Tweedy will perform in 11 cities, starting February 24 in Washington, D.C. He’ll then make stops in mostly major markets such as Philadelphia, New York City, Toronto, Seattle and Los Angeles.

Included is a two-night stand at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco March 8 and 9. The tour is slated to close March 12 at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis.

Tweedy has a soft spot for things Guthrie. Wilco and iconoclastic folkie Billy Bragg have put out two highly-acclaimed tributes to the legendary Woody Guthrie in recent years with the Mermaid Avenue series.

Wilco’s frontman has also been writing the score for a film titled “Chelsea Walls” – set in New York City’s Chelsea Hotel – starring Kris Kristofferson, Tuesday Weld and Uma Thurman. The film is expected to debut on the festival circuit this spring and be released later in the year.

In the meantime, Wilco has been holed up in the band’s Chicago loft recording songs for a new album tentatively expected in May.
