AT FIRST it was a concert, then a film of the concert, now it is a concert of the film! The Last Waltz, Martin Scorsese's celebrated documentary of the final concert by The Band, will be re-created in Galway.
The Last Waltz will be a two hour recreation of the concert which originally took place on November 25 1976, at Winterland Ballroom, San Francisco. It will feature a 10 piece band, full brass section, and special guests taking on the roles of The Band, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, and Dr John.
Previous performances of this show have been praised by Hot Press for their "astounding musicianship”, and by Ryan Tubridy for the "fantastic party atmosphere”. It takes place in Monroe’s on Saturday September 22. Tickets are €29, including booking fee, from www.monroes.ie
