The Last Waltz
"The Last Waltz" was a concert by the Canadian-American rock group The Band, held on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976, at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco.
"The Last Waltz" was advertised as The Band's "farewell concert appearance," and the concert saw The Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, The Staple Singers, and Eric Clapton.
The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary of the same name, released in 1978. The film features concert performances, intermittent song renditions shot on a studio soundstage, and interviews by Scorsese with members of The Band.
"The Last Waltz" has been hailed by critics as one of the greatest concert films ever made.
