Wilco Being There in Vancouver

WilcoCruel Country Tour
September 21, 2022, Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Vancouver, BC

How cruel. The last time Wilco played Vancouver was on August 12, 2015 when they performed at the Orpheum Theatre. Last Wednesday night’s show was so damn incredible, and because it had been so many years, it was like seeing the band for the first time again.

The 3-song encore of Falling Apart (Right Now), the Grateful Dead’s U.S. Blues, and I Got You (At the End of the Century) was one of the greatest encores I have witnessed.
