Grammy-winning songwriter Dan Wilson will roll out his second solo album with three nights of concerts in different formats at the Cedar Cultural Center in June.

“Love Without Fear” drops on April 15 but the homecoming shows are set for June 4-6. Wilson, who grew up in St. Louis Park and moved to Los Angeles a few years ago to pursue his songwriting career, released his solo debut, “Free Life,” in 2007.

June 4 will be Dan Wilson Words & Music. He’ll talk about tunes he’s written withk Adele, Taylor Swift, Pink, the Dixie Chicks and others. Plus he’ll talk about songs he’s recorded.

June 5 is billed as Dan Wilson & Friends. He’s not naming names but you know that some of his friends include members of Semisonic, Trip Shakespeare and other Twin Cities groups. Do not expect Adele or Taylor.

June 6 is what Wilson is calling “chef’s surprise.” It could be a mixture of Nights 1 and 2 as well as some covers.

Tickets, priced at $33 and $45, will go on sale at noon Friday at the Cedar box office, 612-338-2674 and thecedar.org.
