“The Last Waltz”, was a live show filmed and directed by Martin Scorsese which commemorates the history and music of Bob Dylan and ‘The Band’ and is regarded as the greatest rock and roll concert movie of all time.
Of course it was the guest list on the night that turned it into the greatest gig of all time as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Dr John, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond, Ronnie Hawkins and a host of others joined The Band on stage.
To mark the 30th anniversary of the movie last year, a collective of some of Dublin’s most legendary musicians under the name “The Group”, set about the impossible task of recreating the 2 hour show live in tribute to the original concert.
After sensationally touring large scale venues and leading theatres since 2008, and having had two sold out shows at The Olympia Theatre this year, The Last Waltz Live is back and coming to The Set Theatre, Kilkenny, for one spectacular night on Sat 18th Feb 2012.
Directed by Dublin sons The Group, this feel good full of love extravaganza will be a sure fire way to beat the blues this winter.
With a cast and crew of over 30 including a 10 piece band, full brass section, 13 amazing special guests, and stunning archive footage on a giant screen, this spectacular live re-enactment of the ‘The Last Waltz’ is a must for all who love their music.
