The 17th Annual

Last Waltz Revisited
(DENVER)

Wed., Nov. 24, 2021 | Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, CO

COME JOIN US TO MAKE THIS YEAR’S LAST WALTZ CELEBRATION BETTER THAN EVER AND TO ENSURE THE SUCCESS OF OUR HOLIDAY CANNED FOOD/DESIRED ITEMS DRIVE FOR THE DENVER RESCUE MISSION


Last Waltz – Revisited @ Fillmore Auditorium

The 17th Annual Last Waltz Revisited will be held at the Historic Fillmore Auditorium (and will celebrate the 44th Anniversary of the of The Band’s historic performance of the Last Waltz). This event showcases members ofPolytoxic together with 70+ musicians from across Colorado; this show has become an annual tradition, bringing the community together to kick-off the holiday season. The musicians will perform the music of The Band and recreate their historical performance, The Last Waltz. To celebrate the last 17 years of our performance, we have added special guests like Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman (both of whom regularly perform with Trey Anastasio) as well as additional songs from years past.

The Last Waltz culminates the official Holiday Canned Food and Desired Hygiene Items Drive that benefits the Denver Rescue Mission. With the support of Anthony’s Pizza & Pasta, Boyer’s Coffee, YellowDog Printing & Graphics, KBCO and The Westword, we are again reaching out and seeking to give back to the community by supporting the Denver Rescue Mission.

We will donate a portion of the show’s proceeds to the Denver Rescue Mission and we will give any fan that brings canned food items to the venue (on the day of the show) a FREE Special Artwork Poster. We invite you to share this special night with our musical family and participate in our efforts to collect as many cans of food and desired items as possible for The Denver Rescue Mission to assist needy families during this Holiday Season. So get out and support the 17th Annual Last Waltz Revisited.

We hope you will join us for the 17th year of a musical event that not only supports a worthy cause but has become a family affair.

Please get your tickets early as the show has sold-out in past years!
