Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour
April 2, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm| $25 - $65
Guthrie’s 18-month North American Tour is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the event that inspired the seminal song, “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree.” This musical monologue (which Guthrie will sing in its entirety) originates from Guthrie’s experience on Thanksgiving in 1965 and has since, become a Thanksgiving Day anthem.
“I didn’t think I was gonna live long enough to have to learn ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ again,” Arlo Guthrie says with a smile. “It was a quirky kinda thing to begin with. Nobody writes an 18-minute monologue expecting fame and fortune. The initial success of the song really took me by surprise more than anyone else. The fact that I have contended with it for five decades either by having to learn it again or by not doing it, has been an interesting balancing act. I’m surely looking forward to adding it to the repertoire though for the 50th Anniversary Tour.”
The balance of Guthrie’s concert, consists of a few selections from each album release since Alice’s Restaurant.
