The Last Waltz Tour Comes to Proctors November 5
SCHENECTADY – Proctors has announced that it will host The Last Waltz 2022 Tour on November 5. The tour celebrates the Band’s legendary 1976 farewell concert, which is often credited with being the greatest concert film of all time.
The Last Waltz Tour 2022 features a star-studded lineup led by Warren Haynes and Don Was with Jamey Johnson, Kathleen Edwards, Anders Osborne, Dave Malone, John Medeski, Cyril Neville, Terence Higgins, Bob Margolin, Mark Mullins & The Levee Horns (featuring the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint).
In 1976, The Band performed their final concert to a sold-out crowd with a bevy of music royalty in attendance. The evening culminated with “Don’t Do It,” after which guitarist and founding member Robbie Robertson said “Goodnight. Goodbye.”, walking off stage, forever immortalizing this epic event.
“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 musicians makes me proud to be a part of this ongoing and wonderful tradition.”Robbie Robertson
“We are counting down the days till we get to see this lineup, performing these songs, in the greatest music celebration of our lives,” says Keith Wortman, Creator and Producer of The Last Waltz tour franchise. “Seeing the audiences sing along to every word at every show as one family is what all of us music fans live for.”
