There's no doubt about it: When you think Wilco, you think Chicago. The alt-rock/alt-country band is the brainchild of five native Illinoisans, and though the band's lineup has rotated considerably in the 18 years since its conception, Wilco has always maintained its classification as a Chicago band—and we Chicagoans couldn't be prouder. Frontman Jeff Tweedy and his bandmates came out with their debut album A.M. in 1995, and have since released eight studio albums and won two Grammys.
So it's pretty easy to see why the city of Chicago is so devoted to Wilco. In fact, Wilco played five consecutive shows in Chicago last December, and even that wasn't enough to accommodate all their hometown fans. That's why this time around, they thought bigger: baseball big. This past Sunday, Wilco rocked the Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva—and still sold out, making it their largest show to date.
