When Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy performed at UC Berkeley's Greek Theatre in 2009, he told the crowd it was the most beautiful concert venue to play at in the entire world.

Indeed, the air was crisp, the sound was perfect, and the circular outdoor auditorium tucked at the back of campus sizzled with energy. And this fall, Tweedy -- along with a host of other impressive artists -- has the chance to experience the Greek's splendor once more.


The array of famous acts passing through the historic amphitheater in the coming months is nothing short of mind-boggling. Los Angeles-based collective Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros opens the season this Friday, followed by psychedelic rock legends My Morning Jacket. Wilco plays for not one but two nights in a row, and in October, living luminary Bob Dylan himself will grace the stage.

Designed to mirror the Greek theater of Epidaurus and financed by newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst, the more than a century-old venue will also hold a slew of UC Berkeley related events this autumn, including the notorious "Big Game" rally the night before the football team faces off against Stanford.

Visit Another Planet Entertainment's website for more information on the upcoming shows, and get the few tickets left while you can.
