On Monday night, Wilco wrapped up the latest leg of their 2017 schedule at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, NC, as they make their way toward their 2018 road hiatus, and the band welcomed a couple of special guests on the night.
Mostly sticking to the setlist that they have been presenting in their recent shows, the band ran through a mixture of newer and classic tunes and welcomed guitarist Julian Lage for a run of “Forget the Flowers” later in the set. Lage had also joined his partner and opening act Margaret Glaspy earlier in the night, and she joined Lage and Wilco on stage for the next song, “California Stars.” The band also once again included a cover of Tom Petty’s “The Waiting” in the second of their two encores for the evening. Watch a video of that performance above.
Wilco are now on a short break from the road before heading to St. Louis and St. Paul, MN, next month for their last shows of the year. See their full schedule here.
