WHO: David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts

WHAT: Wilco

WHEN: Monday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m.


Wilco’s Grammy®-nominated album The Whole Love was released in September 2011. The record is Wilco's eighth studio album and the first for the band's newly-formed dBpm Records. Recorded at the band’s Chicago studio, The Loft, The Whole Love features 12 new original tunes, produced by Jeff Tweedy with Patrick Sansone and Tom Schick.

Wilco has collaborated with King Features to present the first hand-drawn Popeye cartoon in more than 30 years. This video for “Dawned On Me” from Wilco’s The Whole Love was directed by Darren Romanelli. More information is available at www.wilcospinach.com

For Wilco’s upcoming North American tour dates, they have launched the Wilco Fan Video Project, which presents fans with a new way to interact with the concert experience. Using Vimeo, fans film and submit footage of their cities – footage which may then be projected behind the band on stage. Link: http://vimeo.com/groups/wilcofanvideoproject.

Fans may take advantage of the popular song request (and dedication) function hosted on the band's website, www.wilcoworld.net.

Regularly priced tickets start at $45.50 and may be purchased by calling 813.229.STAR (7827) or 800.955.1045 outside Tampa Bay, in person at the Straz Center Ticket Office or online at www.strazcenter.org.
