Jeff Tweedy has announced a one-off show at the London Palladium.

Performing as Tweedy, a duo with his son Spencer, the Wilco frontman will perform in the capital on November 4, presumably helped by the band who are currently backing him in the US – bassist Darin Grey, guitarist Jim Elkington and keyboardist Liam Cunningham.

The duo’s first album, Sukierae, will be released on September 15, and reportedly features 20 songs.

“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing,” says Jeff Tweedy, “but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing.

“Solo to me meant that I would do everything – write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (June 20).
