CBS Interactive Music Group’s leading concert webcast series, LIVE ON LETTERMAN, will feature the Chicago rock band Wilco in a live webcast concert from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City, Wednesday, Sept. 21 (8:00 PM, ET/5:00 PM, PT). Wilco will perform fan favorites, as well as songs from their forthcoming eighth studio record, The Whole Love, which features the new hit single, "I Might."
Fans can watch the Wilco webcast live or on-demand at http://www.cbs.com/late_night/liveonletterman/. In addition, the show is available live and on-demand through CBS properties, broadcast on select CBS RADIO stations, viewable live on CBS’s JumboTron in Times Square, as well as via a live audio stream on Radio.com’s mobile applications. The webcasts are also offered through VEVO’s website, mobile and connected devices and syndication partners.
Wilco was founded by Jeff Tweedy in 1994 after the dissolution of his previous group, alt-country standard bearers Uncle Tupelo. From its raucous roots-rock origins, Wilco has expanded its sound over the years to encompass classic pop and genre-spanning experimentalism. In their 17 years as a band, Wilco has been nominated for five GRAMMY® Awards and won two in 2005, including Best Alternative Music Album and Best Recording Package for A Ghost Is Born.
The Whole Love, which hits stores on Tuesday, Sept. 27, is the third album by Wilco’s present lineup, which solidified in 2004 when avant-garde guitarist Nels Cline and guitarist/keyboardist Patrick Sansone joined bandleader Jeff Tweedy, founding bassist John Stirratt, drummer Glenn Kotche and keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen. The Whole Love captures the vibrant energy the band brings to its live performances and features 12 stunning songs that showcase Wilco in a new light, through bold rock, somber acoustic ballads and punchy pop songs.
The band will spend most of the autumn on tour, starting Tuesday, Sept. 13 in Indianapolis and continuing with a European jaunt that begins Monday, Oct. 24 in Glasgow.
Wilco’s LIVE ON LETTERMAN webcast will follow the taping of their performance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, which will be broadcast later that evening (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
