Wilco Is Willing

What could possibly be better than Wilco touring in the fall? How about adding Nick Lowe as support?

In one of those rare moments of synchronicity, Lowe’s first album in more than four years, The Old Magic, drops Sept. 13 on Yep Roc Records, the same day the tour begins with Wilco and Lowe playing Indianapolis at the Murat Theatre. Carl Jung must be smiling.

Other dates include two nights at Toronto’s Massey Hall Sept. 16-17; Boston’s Wang Theatre Sept. 20; New York City at Central Park Summerstage Sept. 22; North Carolina’s Raleigh Amphitheatre Sept. 27; Atlanta at Cobb Energy P.A.C. Sept. 28-29; Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium Oct. 1-2; and Madison, Wisc., at Overture Hall Oct. 5.
