Newton Theatre hosts The Last Waltz Celebration featuring The THE BAND Band & Special Guests

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents The Last Waltz Celebration featuring The THE BAND Band and special guests on Friday, May 24, 2024 at 8:00pm. They will bring to life one of the most historic concerts of the rock era.

On Thanksgiving Day in 1976, concertgoers packed San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom to witness The Last Waltz - the final performance of The Band’s legendary 16-year career.  

The farewell party they hosted that Thanksgiving night featured a who’s who of rock royalty from Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Eric Clapton to Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Ronnie Hawkins. The THE BAND Band recreates the music and the magic of that Thanksgiving evening with The Last Waltz Celebration, performing The Band's most beloved songs and enlisting a dozen guest musicians to the cover numerous artists and songs featured in the original concert. The lineup includes fiddle player Larry Packer, who played with The Band at the original concert in 1976.

Tickets range from $39-$59 and are available for purchase online starting Friday, February 23 at 10:00am.

From Woodstock to The Last Waltz, The Band has been a central figure in some of rock and roll’s most iconic moments. Now, over half a century after the release of their debut album Music From Big Pink, the music they created has proven to be timeless. Their pioneering blend of country, blues, rock, and folk music served as a template for what we now call Americana. Though they are long gone from the stage, their sound and spirit live on in a group of musicians based in Rockland County, NY - not far from Woodstock, The Band’s musical and spiritual home. Begun in 2007 as a labor of love for the music of The Band by co-founders Jack Kraft and Gary Solomon, The THE BAND Band has been on the road for 16 years, from local clubs and joints to theaters and festivals across the country. If you like the music of The Band, you’ll love The THE BAND Band!
