Jeff Spring Tour

Recommended Posts

Those shows were announced nearly a month ago and sold out in minutes.

 

Guess my attention was elsewhere and I totally missed that. I'm sure they sold out as soon as it was on. I was lucky enough to see one of the shows at Largo in 2013 and it was amazing. The venue is tiny. Even then, I only got to attend because of a friend who happened to be able to take my wife an myself. It was an incredible show and an incredible setlist that included The Long Cut and Dash 7. Just wow.

 

Cheers to anyone who gets to attend any show on this run.

Sorry if I was curt - I didn’t mean to be but it might read that way.

 

Those 2013 Largo shows are my most listened to Roadcases. I have the banter memorized at this point. I understand how special those shows are and I’m sorry you missed out this time around.

 

Generally speaking, I think the band’s new model of announcing shows and having a presale two days later is good for fans as it gives scalpers less time to prepare. Unfortunately, it means that if you don’t follow the band on social media and are really “tuned in” there’s a chance of missing out - especially when the venue is a shoebox!

Has anyone confirmed if Jeff will be backed by anyone on this tour? Or just solo?

 

Not sure this is confirmation or not, but a tweet from Thursday from the Jeff Tweedy account said "Don't forget to grab your tickets for Jeff's upcoming solo tour" 

 

Solo tour...

I hope so. I'd totally enjoy Tweedy or some other backing band, but the 2 solo shows I saw were magical times.

I hope it's solo, too. Was pretty surprised by the price points for the best seats. My tickets came out to $105 a piece after fees and what not. Never had to pay that much for anything Wilco related. I think ~$90 is the most I've spent face for Wilco.

Wow! He must be bringing the big light show for the tour.

 

It does appear that at most shows there is a golden circle type situation and the tour has really varied pricing. Austin top tier face at 80, Iowa at 45, Nashville and OKC around 65. Dallas at 70.

 

Supply and Demand has hit Tweedy Inc. Makes sense.

My total for 2 floor row G at Tampa Theatre was $115 and that was including $3 extra for postage. $105 each is excessive. I'd have paid it, but would've been unhappy.

I didn't feel like your response was curt at all. Just saying "wow I really missed the boat on that one" haha.

I’m thinking so!

 

Wait, how many front row Nashville people have you been talking to on FB if you aren't 100% sure?  LOL.

That actually was for Nashville. Face value was $85 plus fees. The price led me to believe he might have a band w him.

Looks like Solo

 

Said this today on AMA

 

I'll be playing solo unless Spencer surprises us. It's different than playing with a band. I enjoy both. But I'm always a little lonely.

Anyone else NOT receive any email announcing these dates? If I wasn't on here or on Facebook, I would have never known.
