On Jan. 19, Wilco performed the second night of their Sky Blue Sky destination event at Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico. After a successful night which featured an appearance by Courtney Barnett, the band took the opportunity on the second night to perform a slew of tour debuts, as well as a couple of songs that had not been played live by the band since 2014.
The show began with one of these bust-outs, “Wilco (The Song),” not played since 2014, followed by the tour debuts of “Wishful Thinking” and “Can’t Stand It.” Later in the set, Wilco performed “That’s Not the Issue” for the first time since 2014 prior to the tour debut of “Walken.”
Later in the set, the band played the tour debuts of “Pot Kettle Black,” “Sky Blue Sky” and “Kingpin.” The 20-plus song set concluded with “Misunderstood,” and “Monday” and the tour debut of “Hoodoo Voodoo” served as the show’s encore.
