XPN Welcomes Wilco
XPN welcomes alt-rock icons Wilco to the Mann mainstage on Saturday, June 4, 2016 with special guest Richard Thompson (solo).
Formed by singer-songwriter and guitarist Jeff Tweedy in the mid-1990s, the band’s current lineup solidified in 2004 when guitarist Nels Cline and guitarist/keyboardist Patrick Sansone joined Tweedy, founding bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glenn Kotche and keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen. Wilco’s brand of classic roots rock incorporates folk, pop and genre-spanning experimentalism. The band’s catalog includes 2002’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (named one of the 500 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone), 2005’s Grammy award-winning A Ghost is Born, the Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album) and The Whole Love and more. Wilco’s latest album, Star Wars, was released as a surprise to their fans for free download in July 2015.
NPR has called Wilco “the best rock band in America” and the band has been heralded by the Los Angeles Times as “an amazing machine whose six players seem more at one with their music than any rock group working today.”
