Wilco Welcomes Faye Webster In Los Angeles

Wilco wrapped up a two-night run at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The Chicago-based rockers welcomed singer-songwriter and opener Faye Webster for a Wilco classic during the encore.

Wilco kicked off the show with an apt “A Shot In The Arm.” The band then filled their 21-song, career-spanning set with favorites like Sky Blue Sky’s “Impossible Germany” and “Either Way,” Yankee Hotel Foxtrot’s “I’m The Man That Loves You” and more along with entires from their latest studio album, 2019’s Ode To Joy, among others.

Wilco kicked off the encore with “California Stars,” from their 1998 collaborative album with Billy Bragg, Mermaid Avenue, featuring lyrics by Woody Guthrie. Frontman Jeff Tweedy then welcomed Webster who joined the band for “Jesus, Etc.” Jeff would go it alone on the first verse while Faye would pretty much duet with him from there on out. Guitarist Nels Cline also added some fantastic lap steel guitar touches. Wilco finished off the encore with “Red-Eyed And Blue,” “I Got You (At the End of the Century)” and “I’m A Wheel.”
