Chicago alt-country heroes Wilco have announced an impressive slate of summer shows to promote their eighth studio album "The Whole Love." The trek begins in Arkansas (of all places) on March 5 and continues through mid-August, where the group will perform two shows at Belgium's Pukkelpop festival. Joining the group at various stops are a handful of equally impressive openers: Andrew Bird, Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo, Dr. Dog, and Blitzen Trapper.

Tickets for most of the shows are on sale this week, though the North Adams, Massachusetts show is a notable exception. Dubbed a "Pay What You Want" charity event, the first 500 tickets will be allotted to the highest bidders, with the remaining 500 sold through a lottery system. The gig is a benefit for the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.

"It's an experiment, which we hope proves to be more civilized, more fair, and more fun than the standard mode of ticket sales," said Director Joseph Thompson. "We hope it brings MASS MoCA the strong charitable support which is at the heart of this special evening."
