The Last Waltz is arguably the greatest concert film of all time.
Shot by Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, the film documents the last concert performed by The Band as its original quintet in 1976 at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom.
Almost 36 years to the day after Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan and poets Michael McClure and Lawrence Ferlinghetti all joined Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm and Company for that legendary show, an all-star lineup will converge on The Warfield on November 24 to reenact that fateful evening.
They'd have it back at the Winterland, but that venue closed down in 1978.
Billed as "The Complete Last Waltz" the show will feature performances by Cass McCombs, Furthur's Joe Russo, Wilco's Nels Cline and members of Gomez, Dr. Dog, Ween, The Fruit Bats, Vetiver, Nada Surf, The Submarines and more. There will also be spoken word performances by cast members of Mad Men, Two Broke Girls and Man of Steel.
In light of the passing of The Band's Levon Helm earlier this year, the Bay Bridged noted, "we can’t help but think this night at The Warfield is in part a tip of the cap to Helm."
Tickets starts at $35 and are available here.
