Wilco Founder Embarks on First Solo Tour

Jeff Tweedy, the founder of Wilco, kicked off his debut 13-date, 12-city solo club tour on Feb. 24, which continues through March 12 in Minneapolis; three shows have sold out in advance – Boston and two shows in San Francisco.

Tweedy has performed as a solo artist at Chicago's Lounge Ax, a now-defunct club owned by his wife. After this brief excursion, he will return to Chicago to record the next Wilco album.
