    Hello people. This is an amazing list of shows. However, I’m looking for the September 17th 2011 show at Massey Hall in Toronto. I have looked EVERYWHERE! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Great Set the other Night, guys (ATL). I’m squinting, which is followed by an unstoppable Smile. The simple thought that, each stop on your Tour, may actually have a different set list is, So wittily American to Me that. Well, I hope that your all enjoying it. I know that I will be, for years. The collaberative efforts with Mr. Weir, simply amaze One. I don’t think that Two Decks and a prepping JD, would have a chance, at the technique, tnere utilized. I’m sitting on it, Guys. Acually, what I’m thinking might grant you Months of Concentrated, play, Is Mixing the whole Tour, down. In it’s aftermath, it seems like a challenging One to Close. A tripple live (or two double’s) is Not a all beyond my comprehension, given the years of material, ln hand. The Collaberative spirit, sets such a Free and Open Terrain, that… With Songs, actually written On The Road, the nearly unescapable truth that, each song on the the band’s first l.p. ,AM actually Could, and in my opinion did (to the individual) hit the Number. That is the # 0ne on this thing that, that eye here, Is called the Billboard, or turn it, Maybe it was the Map, or Chart, if I can figure it out, here. Hold on, Give “another minute” and We’ll get back to you on that..Yet, with the possibility or prospect of NUNSUCH releasing a… Oh, Wait – hey, there it Is.. O.K. guys, to Quadroople One, is a thought. Either and all of these thought’s do weigh (daily perspective, Irony, Wit, the freedom Once felt by Dropping all that, a certaint set list, and.. Just Playing your Collection to the States. These Collaberative in roads, I’m keeping to myself, as I personally (and unfortunately) got caught up with… Well, it’s a long story but I missed the fucking Show! Dam it, I tossed my hat halway across the street, in such futile anger, over that. However, I did (soon after) get to hear – the prefomance, flat on my back, in bed. And thanks to a freind, it spun in the Strait Order of a 5 disc, C.d. changer, all evening, as I lay content in bed, with said friends dog, whom a one point, even gave me a loving Nip on the Nose. Well, my point is, I’m not one to miss shows, yet People Do Get Caught Up At Work, So. Whichever way that you guys decide to tackle this, I’m sure that their are Thousands of Us, still out here, with a Yet To Hear It. An Official Release, by 2014, would be, for Us, well Worth thw Wait. Now you Caught Me, though. You Caught Me thinking. Now look Mr. Tweedy, I know this may sound a touch far fetched, at the Moment. However, could you Cats actually pull off a Polvo cover by the end of this, Is a thought. Personally, I enjoy every peice that Wilco has ever released, and I understand that, it is a lot to cover. Lyrically though (with collaberation, such as exibited in ATL), I’m not saying a Downtown Deadication, but.. One of dem tunes could just Spin in out on NOWHERE, and Arc itself, just off kilter, just about any of your, truley delectable, Jams (even a tune in progress, for that Matter. Any Who, I’ll let you Guys and Gals off the hook, and back into your Own thoughtful imagination, there. If, however. If you are ever Driving into the Free and fine City of Pittsburgh, I implore you (too LOAD) a camera to the roof of your vehicle and Ask One of Us. Simply ask us How drive into the City, from behind Mount Washington. It’s a cool little thing. I beleive that Zeppelin “Did It” in The Song Remains The Same, and.. Well, thank you so much for the Brilliant set Put fourth to ATL, and I/we look forward, to that. Your next L.P:, with the utmost respect, concerning how “Relaxing” a time, that it Takes to write One. With that in Mind, good night and best wishes on the rest of the Tour.. It was so fucking cool, Our thank you. From: Gree (right off the top of his precocious mind) …
    ENJOY THE REST OF YOUR TOUR, We love to watch you Strut.

    Great site! How I never happened upon this archive before I do not know.

    I know this is pretty soon afterwards, but does anyone have a recording from the Wolf Trap show on 7/17/12? It was my first time seeing them live and would love to have a copy.

    Anybody got 5/11/12 Birmingham sloss furnace? Unreal show

  11. Jay says:

    I just wanted to say thank you for hosting this site as well as to the tapers for recording the shows. I’ve only recently gotten into Wilco, but I saw them this month in Tampa and I’m now completely addicted.

  12. Quora says:

    What Wilco album should I listen to next?…

    I will roll slightly off and take some liberties.  My recommendation is to head over to  http://bt.etree.org/ – search “Wilco” or http://www.owlandbear.com/wilco-archive/ and begin to download/listen to shows (recent, past, distant past). With Nels, …

    its about time for some new recordings

  14. jestoon says:

    Hi, This site is great! If anyone has shows from early 1996, could you please upload them? Thanks! (ive always wanted to hear what the “being there” tour would’ve sounded like with Max in the band)

    nice video!

  16. John Dickinson says:

    Thank you, everyone, for a fantastic resource. I saw the guys recently (October 11th) at The Colston Hall in Bristol in the UK… they were, as you’d expect, brilliant!

    It’s great to have access to these live recordings … I downloaded the gig recorded on 07-13-09 at Keyspan Park – Brooklyn, NY … after reading that it had been available on the band’s site for a while. It is great (I’m enjoying it a lot) but can anyone help me find ‘Via Chicago’ (it wasn’t played at that particular gig) … I loved the live version I heard in Bristol and would like to have an MP3 of it from somewhere else … but the filenames are a little impenetrable!!

    By the way … I went to look for a t-shirt but none are available … Let me know when they are again and I’ll certainly buy one to show my gratitude!

    Thanks again

    John

    May I add my plea to Alfonso’s above?
    I admit I don’t much use the gym and only run if someone is chasing me, I listen to Wilco everywhere! And I’d give an arm and a leg to be able to listen to this by other means than my ancient computer’s crappy speakers… Plus, with my crappy connection, I’ve yet to listen to the whole show; I usually make it to the 30 min. mark and then something weird happens and that’s all she wrote…
    My address:

    cserrag@teleline.es

    I do hope we are not breaking any rules with all this shameless begging!

    Thanks in advance, best regards and thanks again to those responsible for this awesome page!

    Hello there, I´m a big Wilco fan from Spain. Does anybody knows where can I download the Sasquatch show that NPR made available only for a day? I know the stream is avalaible, but I´m not interested in it, I really NEED to have this in my ipod (Wilco shows are the best soundtracks to gym and running!). Thanks in advance and congratulations for this web, a real Shangri-La for the Wilco fanatics!
    PS: If it´s not allowed to put a link and someone is so nice, please send me to my email alfonsaez@gmail.com
    You really do me a great favour!

      Thanks for the heads-up, but I can’t find any way to download the show, and playback freezes after 30 min or so in my computer… Does anybody know where it can be downloaded? What I heard sounded freakin’ awesome!!

    Can someone please post their ideas for TOP 10 shows on this page? Wilco, JT, etc. I kinda just want to collect the best sounding shows from different eras. Or if they aren't the greatest quality but have other elements that make them stand out, that'd be nice to know what people think, too.

    THanks!

  25. George says:

    Can somebody explain how to download a show from this site onto my mac? I'm just starting.. thank you

    Thank you for his amazing resource. Unfortunately, the link to Wilco's June 17, 2007 Bonnaroo Webcast Video is broken.

  28. Tom says:

    Thanks for this! Brilliant. Have been thoroughly enjoying the YHF demos.

  29. Dave says:

    Oops, sorry for not saying thanks for a great site too. Amazing job!!!

  30. Dave says:

    Just wondering if anyone has ever come across a recording of July 19th, 2009 at Artpark, Lewiston NY. It was a great show.

    Thanks

  31. Tal says:

    Thanks for this terrific site. It is a wonderful resource and it is greatly appreciated. It is wonderous.

  32. Sudsman says:

    BTW, how rude of me just to come barging in here without saying thank you for the awesome site!! Really a fabulous resource for Wilco junkies.

    Now if only someone had a recording of the show I was at in Fargo in May 2008! :)

  33. Sudsman says:

    A bit of clarity/correction to one of the above compilations/demos:

    The "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Unknown Studio Session" is interesting, but doesn't appear to be from YHF sessions at all. It sounds totally like a a pre-show soundcheck.

    Also, the two "unknown" cuts are:

    Track 1: "Wishful Thinking" – which makes me doubt it's from 2000-01 as theorized in the notes. This song didn't come out until "A Ghost Is Born" (2004) and according to WilcoBase was never performed live until 2004. Then again, stranger things have happened…and this IS Wilco. "Spiders (Kidsmoke)" from A Ghost Is Born was first done in 2001, so this could have been an early working version of "Wishful Thinking" also. Plus, "Ashes of American Flags" is referred to on mic as its early working title, "Cash Machine."

    Track 7 is the classic "Sunken Treasure" from Being There (1996).

    I wish I could shed more light on this, but only the person who posted it would know where it came from. Anyway, as I said, I'm pretty sure it's really just a soundcheck.

    Thanks for all the work that's gone into this amazing resource :-)

  35. chrispaz says:

    Great site for a great band. I don’t suppose there is a recording of their show at The Troxy in London, August 2009? I was there and it was incredible, and i’d love to be able to commemorate it with a recording.

  36. peterwillloveyoubaby says:

    does anybody have a decent quality recording of the original poor places song?

    it was great in the I Am Trying To Break Your Heart film

    thanks, bromosapiens

  37. Aaron says:

    I live in Illinois just outside of Belleville. I have been a Wilco fan since Being There and Mermaid Aves. I have never missed them when they come to St.Louis. I have also seen them in Madison WI and I just flew to Savannah GA on March 25 2010 to see this tour. I would greatly appreciate any recording of that show. I took my brother who lives in Savannah and he had never heard of Wilco and he fell in love with there music and I would love to send him a copy. Thanks and thank you for having such a great site. I have bought all there cds and movies but nothing beats a live recording of a show you were at. Many thanks again and keep up the great work.

  44. Ed Von Face says:

    Love this site…

    Wilco & Tweedy have inspired me to write again.

    I've been writing & recording instrumentals for the past 3 years.

    Since diving into Tweedyville….

    The lyrics are flowing again…

    I even went back to songs written 15 – 20 years ago & re-did them.

    Thanks again!
