After two years of sell out shows in the Music Room, Seafoam Green’s Last Waltz returns to Liverpool Philharmonic on 16 November, this time in the iconic Philharmonic Hall.
On 25 November 1976, at the Hinterland Ballroom in San Francisco, The Band performed their last-ever concert after 16 years on the road. On that fateful night they were joined by some ‘friends’ – Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Dr John, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris & Joni Mitchell to name but a few. The event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and made into a documentary, released in 1978 and has been hailed one of the greatest concert films ever produced.
Over 40 years later, a collective of some of Liverpool’s finest musicians came together to celebrate its impact, and to play over 20 songs from one of the most influential evenings in music history. The night was such a success that two nights were booked for 2017, and it’s happening all again, this time in the Philharmonic Hall’s main room.
