Wilco Wow Benicassim

Wilco Wow Benicassim

Wilco played to a packed main stage audience last night at Benicassim Festival (July 19).

Kicking off with 'Side With The Seeds' - the Jeff Tweedy and Nels Cline guitar combo rocked the thousands that had gathered just as night fell.

Swathed with smoke effects on stage, they played tracks from their whole back catalogue. Each track was interspersed with the crowd chanting 'Ole Ole Ole Ole' spurred on by Tweedy egging them on from the stage.

When they finished with the astounding rock out that is 'Spiders' - the crowd went crazy, chanting for several minutes after the band left the stage.
