Alt-rock fans rejoice, Sleater-Kinney and Wilco will tour together later this year with 16 performances scheduled for the latter part of summer, the two bands announced on Tuesday.
Branded as the It’s Time 2020 summer tour, the run of shows begins on August 8th in Spokane, WA and continues throughout the month before wrapping on August 29th following a gig in Chicago, IL. The tour will see the two popular veteran rock acts hitting major U.S. cities across the country including Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO (8/11); Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, TN (8/16); Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD (8/21); Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY (8/22); Thompson’s Point in Portland, ME (8/26); and Millennium Park Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago, IL (8/29).
The two bands will also be joined in support by NNAMDÏ on select dates during the end-of-summer run.

Wilco & Sleater-Kinney Summer Tour Announcement
Sleater-Kinney celebrated the release of their ninth studio album last August with the Annie Clark-produced The Center Won’t Hold. The longtime trio also shrunk to an unofficial duo, however, as co-founding drummer Janet Weiss left the band just a month prior to the album’s release in early July.
Wilco also released their own studio album in 2019 with Ode To Joy, which arrived in October via the band’s own dBpm label. The band was in Mexico earlier this year where they hosted their Sky Blue Sky destination event in late January. Wilco also has plans to tour alongside Trampled By Turtles later this year as well come September.
Tickets for these newly-announced summer shows go on sale this Friday, March 13th, at 10 a.m. local here.
