Wilco — 18 August 2022, Toronto, ON, Canada (Budweiser Stage)


Recommended Posts

A personal dream bill of mine — albeit in not exactly a personal dream venue, but you can't have it all — with Kathleen Edwards and Bahamas preceding Wilco in the familiar and giant shed-like confines of the Budweiser Stage. So I had to make it if at all possible, and thanks to the usual flight delays and Covid confusion...well, I barely did by the early 6 p.m. start of Edwards' set.

 

Again, just posting the setlist for now as travel insanity prevents more commentary for the moment...will hopefully circle back.

 

Here was the complete setlist, as played (didn't get a look at a printed list, so can't say if there were any changes/omissions):

 

Handshake Drugs

I Am My Mother

Cruel Country

I Am Trying To Break Your Heart

Hints

War On War

If I Ever Was A Child

Via Chicago>

Many Worlds (coda only)

At Least That's What You Said

Story To Tell

Hummingbird

Bird Without A Tail/Base Of My Skull

Heart's Hard To Find

Jesus, etc.

Impossible Germany

Love Is Everywhere (Beware)

California Stars

A Lifetime To Find

Box Full Of Letters

Spiders (Kidsmoke)

---------------------------------------------

Falling Apart (Right Now)

Red-Eyed And Blue>

I Got You (At The End Of The Century)

The iconic Canadian venue.... the Budweiser Stage. I believe this Budweiser Stage is the same venue they did a similar double bill with Lord Huron a few years ago. If Wilco ever circles back to Toronto in the next few years and plays the newly renovated Massey Hall, I'll definitely try to make the trip.

Thought it might be worth posting what has been seen elsewhere.

To the tune from the Casey Jones show ( for a reminder:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hps6L5vS0sc )

 

Setlist Guy

 

Stop, look, listen ’cos you’re gonna hear
A brand new story ’bout a gig pioneer,
He’s the greatest of them all we claim
Number one’s his thread post, Setlist Guy’s his name.


Setlist Guy a scribbling and a noting,
Setlist Guy you never have to guess
When you read the rhythm of his meter
It’s Bbop at the keyboard with emotion to express!


There’ll be Albert Tatlock and old A-man too,
Kidsmoke, Lotti and the rest of the crew.
Reading an update that’s a lot of fun
When Bbop takes his notepad for another run!


Setlist Guy a scribbling and a noting,
Setlist Guy you never have to guess
Though his naming scheme's a bit pedantic
It’s Bbop at the keyboard recalling banter at its best!

Dear Chief Scribe:  Baseball writers often travel with the major league team they are covering.  Wilco certainly is the major leagues. Therefore, they should find a seat for you on the team bus!

not to be a setlist guy, but the return of Spiders makes me very hopeful for NH.

just one of those songs I always want to hear that I've missed sorely at the last 4 or 5 shows I've seen. I think the last time I saw it was Solid Sound in '17.

I have the same hope for NH!
