Not a band that likes to repeat itself too often, Wilco will make an exception for its long-entrenched Twin Cities fanbase this November. After playing a three-night stand at the Palace Theatre in 2017 to mark the start of a yearlong hiatus, Chicago’s Americana-rock darlings will return to the refurbished St. Paul concert hall for another November trilogy ahead of their Thanksgiving break Nov. 22-24.
Tickets for all three shows go on sale this Friday, Sept. 20, for $60 via Etix.com, 1-800-514-3849 or in person at Minneapolis’ Depot Tavern and select First Ave Inc. ticket outlets.

The concerts were announced Tuesday morning alongside the posting of a new single, “Everybody Hides,” from the Oct. 4 album “Ode to Joy.” Check out the whimsical video for the new song below, too, which follows the summer release of "Love Is Everywhere" to first tease the record.
