The Last Waltz

San Francisco: Bill Graham Productions, 1976. Original poster advertising the final performance by The Band at Bill Graham's Winterland in San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976. Not to be confused with the resulting film of the same name directed by Martin Scorsese.

By the mid-1970s, after a furious number of performances with The Band, Robbie Robertson had become road-shy and wanted to cap the great quintet's career with a grand finale in the place where they had begun. What began as a simple idea turned into a complex and expensive venture, as well as something of an interpersonal emotional tempest. But the performance, and the film that came from it, ironically immortalized The Band in ways that no one--probably not even Scorsese--ever expected.

Poster designed by Bob Cato and Michael Manoogian, using elements from the work French surrealist Georges Hugnet.

20.5 x 28.5 inches. Rolled, on linen. Fine.
