Wilco — 24 November 2019, St. Paul, MN (Palace Theatre) [Night 3 of 3]

Recommended Posts

It's been a pretty long three months of touring in advance and support of Ode To Joy, and I'd say Wilco and its always-stellar crew have more than earned a couple weeks of rest before getting back to it next month. Finishing up another successful three-night run in St. Paul, the band sent the faithful off to eat turkey (or what have you) with another solid set that generally reflected the show it has been presenting these past months while also adding a few nuggets to make it unique.


On a personal note, it's a bit hard to believe starting this tour off in Trondheim, Norway in early September with virtually no idea what the new record would sound like live and now getting to the point when those OTJ songs have seeped into my conscious and, I'm sure, subconscious. It feels like it's been quite the journey, in more ways than one.


More to come in a little while, but for now, here was the complete setlist as played (there were no changes from the printed list):

Roadcase for this and the other St Paul shows are now available. I may or may not be the person that said "Thank you Ukraine" after Summer Teeth. Who knows!

Oops, just realized I sort of never finished my recap on this one. I was kind of dragging at that point!
