Collective Unconscious Presents: The Last Waltz
The band that set the bar in magnificent album shows brings to life one of the greatest rock concerts of all time, "The Last Waltz." Collective Unconscious is renowned for staging such mega-hits as The Beatles' "Abbey Road;" The Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds;" CSNY’s "Déjà vu;" and most recently as half of the super group that performed "Takin’ It To The Limit, a Tribute to The Eagles." For "The Last Waltz," the stage will once again be filled with special guests.
The audience will hear hits including "Up on Cripple Creek," "The Shape I'm In," "Who Do You Love," and "The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down." Before it was a three-disc album, "The Last Waltz" was a 1976 farewell concert by The Band, filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary of the same name. The concert itself was on Thanksgiving in San Francisco, and The Band was joined on stage by more than a dozen special guests, including Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, and Neil Young.
The Band, which continued to tour in the '80s without guitarist Robbie Robertson, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked them No. 50 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, and in 2008, The Band received the Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award.
