You can probably tick off the number of iconic individual concerts on both hands. The Beatles at Shea Stadium and Prince’s 1983 unveiling of Purple Rain at First Avenue come to mind. But those were acts on the way to becoming legends, The Band’s farewell show The Last Waltz was something else entirely. It’s a film capturing the nexus point of a musical decade, directed by one of the era’s best-loved auteurs. It’s much bigger that The Band both in fact (they were joined by Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Neil Young and Allen Toussaint) and in metaphorical impact. It’s no wonder that the involved parties keep trying to rekindle that magic with tours.
Two years after a few original members of The Band brought the show back to life for its 40th anniversary, the re-imagined group is hitting the road yet again with a who’s who of beloved musicians. Original band member Robbie Robertson is putting on a 12-date run with Warren Haynes, Don Was and Jamey Johnson, among others.
The tour will start on November 5 at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre. Five days later, the group is in Boston to play the Orpheum Theatre. An East Coast run terminates at the Saint Augustine Amphitheatre on November 17 before The Band closes out with two Midwest dates: St. Louis’ Stifel Theatre and the Chicago Theatre.
“It is such an honor that the musical celebration of The Last Waltz and The Band carries on today,” Robertson said in a statement. “Blackbird Presents and this extraordinary lineup of talent makes me proud to be a part of this ongoing and wonderful tradition.”
