CANCELLED at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, now called The Amp, presents alternative rock band Wilco live in concert with special guest Ratboys on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
The Chicago sextet Wilco has won multiple Grammy Awards over the past two decades and released eleven studio albums. To quote NPR: “To see Wilco on stage is to hear the best of the best.” Wilco will be touring Europe and North America extensively in support of their most recent album, Ode To Joy.
When questioned about the choice of title for this latest album, lead vocalist and songwriter Jeff Tweedy said: "I think it's audacious and sincere. It just kept coming back as the one title that felt honest. The record is, in a weird way, an ode; this terrible stuff is happening, this deepening sense of creeping authoritarianism that weighs on everybody’s psyche on a daily basis, and you’re allowed to feel a lot of things at once. And one thing that is worth feeling, that is worth fighting for, is your freedom to still have joy even though things are going to ****.”
