Classic Albums Live and its roster of A-list musicians from across the country will be performing The Band’s The Last Waltz exactly as you remember hearing it, note for note, cut for cut.
The Last Waltz was advertised as The Band's farewell concert appearance, held on Nov 25, 1976. The concert hosted many special guests including Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood, Muddy Waters, Neil Young, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Bobby Charles, Dr. John, Paul Butterfield, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Hawkins, Joni Mitchell, and The Staple Singers.
Director Martin Scorsese filmed the evening and released the documentary of the same name in 1978.
