Nels will once again participate in a recreation of the Band’s iconic The Last Waltz, this time at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, on November 26.
Look for Nels to pop up at the theatre a few weeks earlier, as well. In addition to Wilco’s three sold-out shows there at the end of this month, it was announced a few days ago that he’ll also be joining Phil Lesh and Friends on November 1.
Last time Nels played with Phil, he joined the group for the second set only and wasn’t featured as prominently as a Nels fan would hope for. Because of that, I only recommend shelling out for the webcast if you’re a die-hard Phil/Dead fan. If you tune in for Nels alone, you’ll be disappointed.
