Wilco Releases Free E-Book ‘The Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago’

    Wilco has released a new free e-book called The Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago, available on Apple’s online iBookstore for iPads.  Designed by the band’s new record label, dBpm Records, the digital book is interactive in nature including band photos, show posters and setlists, and footage from five exclusive Wilco shows.  Two behind the scenes video clips will also be included, one featuring Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples, and Nick Lowe performing “The Weight,” and the other of Tweedy and Stples rehearsing “You Are Not Alone.” 

    The Chicago-based band, whose fan list includes President Obama, also recently recorded a Spanish version of their 2011 album The Whole Love titled Me Avivé, to honor the band’s headlining appearance at Primavera Sound.  Wilco kicked off a summer tour in May that will wrap up at the Hollywood Bowl on September 30.
