The Last Waltz Tour 2019 will return for a dozen concerts starting Nov. 5 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y. This tour, according to a press release, “captures the excitement of The Band’s historic 1976 Thanksgiving concert at the famed Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, hailed as one of the greatest rock concerts of all time.” The announcement was made by Robbie Robertson of the Band, Sebastian Robertson and Keith Wortman of Blackbird Presents

Guests at the original 1976 Last Waltz included Dr. John, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and more

The Last Waltz Tour 2019: A Celebration of The Band’s Historic Farewell Concert features Grammy Award-winning guitarist and vocalist Warren Haynes and Grammy-winning producer/musician Don Was, with Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson, John Medeski, Terence Higgins and Mark Mullins and the Levee Horns featuring the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint. Very special guests Cyril Neville (the Neville Brothers), Dave Malone (the Radiators) and Bob Margolin (guitarist who performed with Muddy Waters and the Band in the original Last Waltz) will be featured throughout the tour.

“It is such an honor that the musical celebration of the Last Waltz and the Band carries on today. Blackbird Presents and this extraordinary lineup of talent makes me proud to be a part of this ongoing and wonderful tradition,” says Robbie Robertson in the press release.

The Last Waltz Tour: A Celebration of The Band’s Historic Farewell Concert is an extension of Blackbird Presents’ 2016 two-night, sold-out concert event The Last Waltz New Orleans and 2017’s The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary Tour.
