Watch Warren Haynes Lead Opening Night Of The Last Waltz 40th Anniversary Tribute Tour

first_imgThe Last Waltz officially ended The Band’s career in November of 1976, though the performance would ultimately spark the musical flames of an entire subsequent generation. There is perhaps no greater evidence of that than the recently announced The Last Waltz 40 tour, which began in Florida last night as a celebration of the show’s 40th anniversary.Granted, it’s technically been 41 years since the show was played, but when you recruit musicians like Warren Haynes, Don Was, Michael McDonald, Terence Higgins, Jamey Johnson and more or the occasion, any time all of their schedules are clear is an appropriate time to honor The Band. And honor they did, pulling out all the punches for hours upon hours of great music.Opening night took place at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL, featuring the unmistakeable songs that propelled The Band into the spotlight, like “Cripple Creek,” “The Shape I’m In” and countless more. Fortunately, there are a number of fan shot videos of the performance to capture the essence of the night.“Up On Cripple Creek”“The Shape I’m In”“Stagefright”“Life Is A Carnival”“It Makes No Difference”“Way Down South In New Orleans”The Last Waltz 40th tour continues throughout the end of January into February.
