Wilco coming to ACL TV
Tickets for Wilco’s December 12 show at Austin City Limits Live (the TV show, not the festival that just passed) will be available starting 10 a.m. Friday, September 23. The show will take place at Austin’s Moody Theater and at press time there was no info on ticket prices. But starting on Friday you can get them in person at Waterloo Records, by calling (877) 435-9849, or simply by visiting acl-live.com. Wilco’s eighth studio album, The Whole Love, will be released on Tuesday, September 27.
The Smiths’ boxed set (remastered by Johnny Marr) comes out October 18, but if you want the numbered collector’s edition (only available at rhino.com) you better pre-order now. The regular box set includes all four Smiths studio albums (The Smiths, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead, and Strangeways, Here We Come), their sole live album (Rank) and three compilations (Hatful Of Hollow, The World Won’t Listen, and Louder Than Bombs). This one goes for $78.98 (CD), $249.98 (LP), and $39.99 (Digital), while the Deluxe Collector’s Edition (trunk-style box, CD and vinyl, 7-inch singles, DVD and other surprises) can be pre-ordered for $499.98 and will be out on October 25.
