Nicole Atkins will host a virtual recreation of The Band’s The Last Waltz later this week when Natkins Funhouse Presents: The Last Waltz at Home livestream takes place on Friday, November 27th, 2020 at 7 p.m. CT.
Announced on Monday, the one-night event will feature Atkins along with a number of special guests throughout the evening including Shakey Graves, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Lone Bellow, Ancient Cities, Dancey Jenkins, Langhorne Slim, Lilly Hiatt, John Paul White, Lola Kirke, John McCauley (Deer Tick), Courtney Marie Andrews, Buffalo Hunt, Eric D.

The Last Waltz at Home will air exclusively on Seated, and will be available to watch on-demand for 72 hours following the original webcast.
Atkins has taken part in various re-creations of the famous farewell show at The Capitol Theatre in the past few years.
“This time of year I look forward to the tradition of performing the complete The Last Waltz at the Capitol Theatre in New York. The lineup is always so diverse and I’ve met some of my best musical friends from these shows,” Atkins said in a press statement with Monday’s announcement. “Additionally, Thanksgiving is a big deal in my house. Our table is large. We play dice after dinner – laughin’ and shouting with the music loud and dollars flyin’! So, while we’re in the midst of this unprecedented worldwide pandemic, a lot of us, myself included, are unable to be with our families this Thanksgiving or continue the tradition of performing The Last Waltz together, The Last Waltz at Home, became our solution.”
Tickets for the event run for a manageable $12, which can be purchased here. All proceeds will be distributed equally amongst the participating artists.
