Watch Bob Weir, Warren Haynes, Michael McDonald & More Sing “The Weight” In Last Waltz Tribute

first_imgOne of the most exciting 2017 announcements is that of the Last Waltz tour, a traveling tribute to the 40th anniversary of The Band’s final performance. Fans in Asheville, NC got a taste of that tour last night, as Warren Haynes, Michael McDonald, Don Was, Jamey Johnson, John Medeski and Terence Higgins all joined forces for a set of music at the 28th annual Christmas Jam. That group will be the same lineup as the coming tour, so fans really got a chance to see these musicians dig into The Band’s renowned catalog.Of course, the Christmas Jam featured a number of great musicians on its lineup, creating an enormous potential for sit-ins during the Last Waltz tribute. When it came time for the big show-stopper, “The Weight”, Haynes and co called on a few special guests for the moment, including vocals from Bob Weir and Alison Krauss.Fortunately, rohbear1 captured this magical collaboration for us all to enjoy.
