From Woodstock to The Last Waltz, The Band has been at the center of rock and roll’s most esteemed happenings. They are regarded as one of the most popular and influential rock groups in the world and considered to be pioneers of Americana music. The Last Waltz, the legendary 1976 farewell concert by The Band, featured more than a dozen guest artists including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Eric Clapton, and showcased The Band’s classic hits like "The Weight," "Up On Cripple Creek," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Ophelia," and "It Makes No Difference," to name a few. The THE BAND Band’s spectacular Last Waltz Celebration revisits that magical Thanksgiving evening that has earned a high place in the annals of rock and roll history. Reminiscent of The Band at The Last Waltz, The THE BAND Band becomes the backing band for guest artists representing many of the special guest performances from that night, such as Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young," Ronnie Hawkins’ “Who Do You Love,” Van Morrison’s “Caravan,” and more. And in the spirit of the original Last Waltz where promoter Bill Graham served Thanksgiving turkey dinner to the concert audience, prior to showtime come enjoy fabulous free hors d’oeuvre by Jim Thorpe’s own 14-Acre Farm, compliments of the Opera House.
