LOS ANGELES (Billboard) Wilco, the celebrated Chicago-based roots-rock band whose latest album is nominated for a Grammy award, announced Monday a 16-date East Coast tour kicking off March 22.

During "An Evening with Wilco," the band will revisit songs from each of its seven studio albums, and promises "extended, varied sets" is midsized theaters. Tickets for all the shows start pre-sales through the band\'s official website, wilcoworld.net, on Wednesday (January 6).

The spring East Coast tour adds to an already busy schedule for Wilco in 2010. The band is scheduled to appear as part of the 2010 MusicCares Person of the Year concert honoring Neil Young in late January, before embarking on a tour of the Pacific Northwest, the upper Midwest and Canada. The band will play in Japan, New Zealand and Australia in April and May.

Wilco also is working on new songs. According to Billboard sources, the band will record new material in its Chicago loft studio during the January break from the road.

In addition, Wilco co-founder Jeff T****y is producing a new album for fellow Chicagoan Mavis Staples at Wilco\'s studio throughout the month. Neko Case band singers Nora O\'Connor and Kelly Hogan are singing with Staples on the new recordings. A 2010 release on Anti- is expected.

I would do the same but already have furthur tix with my cousin, so I\'m not bailing on him, and just booked a trip to mexico last night so I\'m officially broke. Who knows, maybe I\'ll score some cheap seats on craigslist or something day of the shows
