On Thanksgiving Day, 1976, five thousand cheering fans gathered for the historic farewell concert of The Band. In the words of lead guitarist Robbie Robertson, "We wanted it to be a celebration." And so it was, and is, in Martin Scorsese’s lovingly filmed record of the event. The Last Waltz is more than just a concert film. Scorsese intercuts probing, humorous interviews with the group. What emerges is a unique insider’s view into the golden age of rock. Superstars Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, and virtuoso guitarist Eric Clapton join The Band onstage, climaxing with the return of one-time collaborator Bob Dylan, plus ex-Beatle Ringo Starr for 'I Shall Be Released'. Also features performances from Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Van Morrison, The Staples, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Paul Butterfield, and Ron Wood.
