To mark the 30th anniversary of the movie last year, a collective of some of Dublin’s most legendary musicians under the name “The Group”, who are mostly members of the Butler family, set about the task of recreating the two hour live show in honour of the original concert. “The Last Waltz”, was an outstanding rock documentary of the last concert by ‘The Band’. Veteran director Martin Scorsese chronicles the most legendary night in rock history. It started as a concert and became a celebration as an unparalleled lineup of rock superstars — including Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Neil Diamond and Muddy Waters – take the stage for “The Band’s” 1976 farewell performance.

With a cast and crew of over 30, an 11-piece band and full brass section, 13 amazing special guests, and archive footage on a giant screen, this spectacular live re-enactment of the ‘The Last Waltz’ is a must for all who love their music.

“A truly magical celebration” – Doc Bailey (Life Records)

“The young man who plays Morrison is just sublime” – Brian Lally (RTE)
