Wilco Take Latitude By Storm

Wilco Take Latitude By Storm

Jeff Tweedy and Wilco played an extraordinary set on the first night of the Latitude Festival in Norfolk. Second on the bill on the main stage, the band played ten songs in an energetic and often euphoric set.

A few spots of rain began to fall as Wilco started, prompting a rueful Tweedy to note, "It was a lovely day 'til we got here. I apologise."

The show, however, disproved the popular notion that Tweedy and Wilco are introverted and depressive as a band. Instead, their set focused on raging and often very noisy rock'n'roll, with lead guitarist Nels Cline often taking charge.

Wilco played:

1 You Are My Face
2 I Am Trying To Break Your Heart
3 Shot In The Arm
4 Side With The Seeds
5 Via Chicago
6 Handshake Drugs
7 Impossible Germany
8 Walken
9 I'm The Man Who Loves You
10 Spiders (Kidsmoke)
