Robbie Robertson has announced the return of The Last Waltz Tour, an all-star tour celebrating The Band’s legendary farewell concert.
Warren Haynes, Don Was, Jamey Johnson and Lukas Nelson are among the artists that will take part in the 12-date The Last Waltz Tour 2019: A Celebration of The Band’s Historic Farewell Concert.
The trek will kick off on November 5 in Port Chester, New York, and will visit 11 other cities, wrapping up November 21 in Chicago.
The tour is being presented in association with founding Band guitarist and songwriter Robbie Robertson, his son Sebastian and concert promoters Blackbird Presents.
“It is such an honor that the musical celebration of The Last Waltz and The Band carries on today,” Robertson says. “Blackbird Presents and this extraordinary lineup of talent makes me proud to be a part of this ongoing and wonderful tradition.”
Blackbird Presents founder Keith Wortman adds, “This year’s tour will introduce fans to some very special never-heard-before arrangements of the classic hits from that Thanksgiving night in 1976.”
Tickets for nearly all of the concerts are on sale now at TheLastWaltz.com.
