THE LAST WALTZ 40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
November 22 2016
It may be the most legendary rock concert of all time. Never have so many icons of a generation assembled on one stage, with one peerless band, to such indelible ends as the Band's final hurrah at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on Thanksgiving Day, 1976.
The epic all-star event featured Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Neil Young, Ringo Starr, Emmylou Harris, Van Morrison, Neil Diamond, Dr. John, Eric Clapton and many more. It became an essential album and a classic film by young director Martin Scorsese.
The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary Concert Tour reunites two of the creative lynchpins of the landmark event for the first time: the Band's keyboard genius Garth Hudson and the music director and producer John Simon, of The Band, the US-Canadian outfit that lit the torch of Americana for generations to come.
The handpicked rock ensemble of which he speaks naturally features some of our most seasoned and revered players, led by the Warratahs' Barry Saunders, blues guitar giant Kevin Borich, incredible country and soul powerhouse Tami Neilson, country journeyman Delaney Davidson, the soulful Paul Ubana Jones, the Eastern's Adam McGrath, very special guest from the US Sister Maud Hudson.
They'll be backed by one of the mightiest bands ever to straddle the rock-country divide: The Bads features Brett Adams, Dianne Swann, Dave Khan, Mike Hall, Wayne Bell and very special guest Paddy Milner—whose reputation as one of the world's great blues pianists stems from work with Tom Jones, Jack Bruce, David Gilmour, Eric Burdon and Van Morrison.
From "The Weight" to "Forever Young", "Caravan" to "I Shall Be Released", "Mystery Train" to "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", don’t miss this magical intersection of timeless music and unique performers revisiting one of the great moments in rock history.
