The Last Waltz was a concert held by The Band, a Canadian-American band that rose to fame during the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. The concert was held on November 25, 1976, Thanksgiving Day in San Francisco. The event was The Band’s “farewell concert appearance,” and it included guests such as Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bobby Charles, Ringo Starr, Neil Young, and many more.
The concert was filmed by acclaimed director Martin Scorsese, who later turned it into a documentary and released it in 1978.
