I waited far too long to see Wilco perform live. They waited far too long to come to Rochester. Thankfully the stars aligned for us both this weekend because they absolutely rocked my face!
They played for over two hours and the setlist included a good mixture of songs from their entire catalog. They had a ton of energy and seemed to really be enjoying the crowd. So much so that they basically turned their second encore into another set!
The audio on the above video is atrocious, but it was taken from a similar vantage point as our seats. Only we were dead-center. Here’s the local paper’s review of the show.
Definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Here’s to hoping Jeff Tweedy makes good on his promise to come back real soon!
