Antone's Presents: The Last Waltz Revisited
The upcoming Last Waltz Revisited will mark the third local Thanksgiving production of The Band's seminal "The Last Waltz." Though the performance will be a commemorative nod to the beloved group, musicians of Wisebird, Cowboy & Indian, Emily Hello, Kind Corduroy, on Beckham, Guy Forsyth, Colin Fuchs (Raul Malo) will surely do The Band's music its justice.
The Last Waltz was a concert by the rock group The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The Last Waltz was advertised as The Band's "farewell concert appearance," and featured more than a dozen special guests, including Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr and Neil Young.
In celebration of the original concert, Antone's will host a screening of the The Last Waltz along with a Thanksgiving buffet, which will be followed by music from the featured artists.
