Wilco has added a fifth — and final — concert and venue to the band’s upcoming tour of its own hometown.

The band has announced another gig: 8 p.m. Dec. 18 at (drum roll, please) intimate Lincoln Hall.

This show’s a benefit, to boot. Proceeds from this concert will support the Inspiration Corporation, a group helping local homeless people find housing and work.

Tickets are $100 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday via

The other shows — during what the mayor should proclaim as Wilco Week in Chicago — sold out in a flash, so be ready. Those other concerts, to recap, are:

— Dec. 12 @ Civic Opera House

— Dec. 13 @ Riviera Theatre

— Dec. 15 @ Vic Theatre

— Dec. 16 @ Metro

The Dec. 13 show is also a benefit as part of radio station WXRT’s Holiday Concerts for Kids. Plus, if you purchase Wilco’s fine new album, “The Whole Love,” at area Garrett’s popcorn shops part of the purchase supports the Jane Adams Hull House Association.
