At the Seattle show a few weeks ago it was a pretty good mix of boomers, Gen Xers, and millennials. Even some teens. The crowd was a much more diverse mix of fans than I would have assumed at first. Everybody I saw was super into the show - not just the well known stuff. Brian may have been having an off night, but the enthusiasm was definitely there in the crowd.

Not sure if there's a 2020 Tour page yet, but Brian will be at the MGM National Harbor Casino on January 22nd with "Greatest Hits Live" … this venue seems way too big for Brian, in my opinion.

Just got the new Wilco album on vinyl and spotted a familiar name as the album’s featured saxophonist, Paul Von Mertens!

I've never been to this theater....how big is it?  Having just seen the absolutely sublime show in Philadelphia just over a week ago, a greatest hits show in a casino gives me some trepidation.  It will be interesting to see if they keep some of the deep cuts from the Something Great 68 tour.  Please please please...

I don't know how much touring he's planning on doing next year, but as I mentioned in the top post of this thread, I was planning on likely starting a companion to this thread for 2020, so I can do that now certainly (that way I can edit the top post with schedule updates and setlists, etc. as I have in the past).

I should add more on the Philly show time permitting...it was a special night due in large part to the deep cuts. And I'm still not over the special guest appearance!

But the deep cuts are what made this one special. You could feel the love and care taken by the band on that stage to bring them to life. I can understand the scheduling of "greatest hits" shows, but when you see a band recreating "'Til I Die" and "Diamond Head" and "Passing By" live on stage...that's as good as it gets. Really, that's something truly special. Kudos to all who brought that to the fans from the live stage.

According to the website, it has 3,000 seats however, I believe that's referencing the permanent seats in the upper tiers. The floor probably holds an additional 2-3,000 seats. I had the misfortune of seeing Cher there last year (a birthday gift to my mother). I would guess they seat about 5,000-6,000 for a concert.
