Credit: Danny ClinchFounding Band multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson will be taking part in most of the shows on the upcoming leg of The Last Waltz 40 Tour, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of The Band’s historic 1976 farewell concert.

Hudson will perform at seven of the trek’s 10 dates, including the tour’s March 30 kickoff in Grand Prairie, Texas, and its April 15 finale in San Francisco.

As previously reported, the lineup of musicians featured on the new leg of The Last Waltz 40 Tour includes New Orleans legend Dr. John, ex-Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes, acclaimed producer/bassist Don Was, country artist Jamey Johnson and Dirty Dozen Brass Band drummer Terence Higgins, among others. Dr. John was one of the many stars who performed with The Band at the original Last Waltz concert, which was held November 25, 1976, at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom.

Hudson also played at two concerts last month during the previous leg of The Last Waltz 40 Tour. To buy tickets for all dates on the trek and check out the full lineup of musicians, visit
