7PM doors, 8PM show (2 sets) $12 advance tix, $15 day of the showhttp://www.wireismusic.com/event-calendar/?event_id=5592225
One of the most famous events in rock history is when The Band decided to sing their swan song in grand fashion by performing their greatest tunes and by inviting more than a few of rock's luminaries to join in with them. The concert was made into a successful movie directed by Martin Scorsese. The soundtrack features 30 songs!!
CAST IRON SKILLET is a classic rock cover band that forms once a year for a special show. We've tackled such masterpieces as Santana's "Abraxas", Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", and Zappa's "Apostrophe". "The Last Waltz" continues the tradition this year. Augmenting the core lineup of SKILLET will be a slew of talented folks from Chicago's music community who will guest on the "non-Band" songs written by the likes of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Dr. John, etc.
