Wilco will play Omaha for the first time in more than a decade.

The Grammy-winning rock band will hit the road in the fall after a two-year hiatus, and the group’s slate includes a date at the Orpheum Theater on Nov. 20.

During Wilco’s break, frontman Jeff Tweedy released two solo albums and a memoir, but the band is excited to be on the road again.

“I have a good time playing by myself, just like everybody else in the band does,” Tweedy told Rolling Stone. “But I’ve definitely missed the sound of those six people onstage. It’s like getting to hang out with my closest friends again.”

Formed after the breakup of alt-country band Uncle Tupelo, Wilco went on to become a popular and widely influential indie rock band whose style crosses multiple genres.

Wilco’s last album, “Schmilco,” was released in 2016 and landed on Rolling Stone’s list of that year’s best albums. The band has been in the studio working on new music, which Tweedy told Rolling Stone might be released soon.

Wilco will headline its sold-out Solid Sound Festival this weekend in Massachusetts and head on a tour that takes them across Europe and North America.

Wilco last played in Omaha in 2007. The band stopped in Lincoln in 2017.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. July 2 via Ticket Omaha.
