An Earnest Email to Wilco -- Or, a Response to Our Plea

Posted By on Wed, Dec 19, 2007 at 3:10 PM

So, an A to Z reader (who wishes to remain anonymous) emailed Wilco to inquire about St. Louis plans. (Inspired, perhaps, by my open letter.) The band responded thusly:

From:"Wilco HQ" Subject:Re: WILCO Tour Announcement Date:Wed, 12 Dec 2007 16:28:59 -0800 To:[REDACTED]

hi [REDACTED]

yes at some point...we will come to St. Louis... this is a short tour in the middle of the Winter primarily hitting markets we have not played on this record...more dates later in the spring.

Thanks, anonymous reader! My letter was more to point out absurdity of the "Road trip!" ad and to lament the lack of concert love toward here; glad the band is being so responsive and keeping us in mind. Mission accomplished.
