The Last Waltz 40 Tour, created by Keith Wortman and led by GRAMMY® Award-winning guitar legend and vocalist Warren Haynes and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/musician Don Was, has been met with critical praise and warm reception from audiences across the country who have been thrilled night after night by the amazing music of The Band showcased in a unique light.  The additional dates will also include Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and GRAMMY® Award-winner Dr. John, Jamey Johnson, Terence Higgins, Danny Louis, an all-star horn section led by Mark Mullins featuring the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint, and very special guests Cyril Neville, Dave Malone, and Bob Margolin. Other very special guests to be announced.

“You soon knew that [The Band’s] legacy would be well feted. Earplugs were required — for the crowd, not the band,” wrote the Huffington Post in its review of the show at the Orpheum in Boston, Massachusetts. “The roar from the audience, which remained standing throughout the show, eclipsed even the occasional eerily screeching synth segments, and the unworldly bleats often coming out of the horns.”

“Whenever you’re doing someone else’s music, you’re paying respect and bringing the deepest parts of your own personality to bear. And you hope for surprises,” says Haynes in an article published by the Philadelphia Inquirer. “These songs – so deeply ingrained in the zeitgeist of who we are in this country – hearing them now is like finding a rare jewel.”

“People love these songs and they’ve become a part of the emotional zeitgeist of country. And unlike the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys or Pink Floyd songs, there’s nobody that’s playing this stuff for folks. You can’t really go to a concert and hear anyone playing The Band’s songs,” says Don Was.
