Wilson Announce Farewell Show

Wilson have announced that they will be calling it quits after one final show at The Crofoot in Pontiac, MI on December 28. The concert will find the band performing “Tasty Nasty,“ “Right To Rise,” and “Full Blast Fuckery“ in full across two sets. Red Stone Souls, The Messenger Birds, Ladysse, and Strange Magic will serve as support.

Wilson issued the following statement:

“Thank you. Goodnight.

After a decade of rock n rock debauchery, we have decide to lay down the axe with one last bonafide cage rager.

It’s hard to put all of this into words. The feelings can only be told face to face. So come out to The Crofoot on Saturday December 28th and let us do it there, together, one last time.

We will be playing two shows on two different stages.

The 1st, will be comprised entirely of our most recent efforts, “Tasty Nasty” and our record “Right To Rise” at The Crofoot Ballroom stage.

The 2nd will be our record “Full Blast Fvckery” in it’s entirety, front to back, at the Pike Room stage, inside of the Crofoot Complex.

PLUS – Earlier that day we will be hosting a special pre-party for 100 ticket buyers. We will be curating “WILSON’S House Of Fvckery” at the Vernors Room inside of The Crofoot. Where you can have a conversation and walk thru our past, present and future with us. A silent auction will be held containing items rare photo sets, music video set pieces and pure WILSON DNA. Proceeds from this auction will go to both Lighthouse Of Oakland County and Musicares Charities. And A lot More.

Presented By 101 WRIF – FM Detroit

With support from our friends The Messenger Birds, Red Stone Souls, Ladysse and Strange Magic

Tickets go on-sale this Friday November 8th at 12pm EST.

We cannot wait to see as many of you as we can. For One Last Party.”

Wilson Guitarist Kyle Landry Announces His Departure From The Band

Wilson guitarist Kyle Landry has announced that he is leaving the band. His final show with the group will take place on July 13 at the Riff Fest in Clarkston, MI.

Landry said the following:

“HELLO ALL – Kyle Landry here and I have some news for all our amazing fans.

The past 9 years has been the greatest adventure I could have ever dreamt up. I wouldn’t trade the memories I have made with each of you for anything. However, I have decided to take my life in a different direction and I will no longer be a member of Wilson.

This decision has been well thought-out, and it did not come easy. All of my Wilson brothers have been fully supportive and understanding of my departure. There are no hard feelings. Music will always be a huge part of my life and I will continue to make songs to share with my friends and family forever.

With that said, Riff Fest this Saturday, July 13th, will be my last performance with Wilson. Thank you all for your support along the way and hopefully we will see you there!”
