Entitled The Complete Last Waltz, the concert will feature all 41 songs originally performed The Band along with a long line of legendary guests in San Francisco on Thanksgiving night 1976.

“Golden Gate Presents is truly thankful to all the artists coming to perform and celebrate The Band in much the same way The Band paid homage to their influences in the original,” comments Ramie Egan of Golden Gate, “It’s going to be a magical night!”
