The recently road-shy Robbie Robertson had a dream; cap this phase of The Band's creativity with a grand musical finale from the place it all started, the Winterland Ballroom. Venue-miester Bill Graham signed on, and signed them, immediately, and so began plans for an incredible evening of turkey plus trimmings [a Graham Thanksgiving tradition], ballroom dancing and multiple bands, all captured for posterity in a film that was conceived as 'let's video this for the archives' and grew into a Martin Scorsese-directed number. The chandelier-decked stage and smooth transition from dinner to rock din belied the murderous atmosphere backstage. Graham and Robertson knocked heads often in the planning stages, expenses skyrocketed, epithets were hurled, and Bob Dylan refused to be filmed at the very last minute. Fancy footwork on Graham's part saved the night and got the footage. The Last Waltz was more than the movie; it was a total experience.
Men's t-shirts are made using the finest combed ringspun cotton to give you the softest, smoothest t-shirt around. A select few are a polyester-cotton blend which increases the t-shirts stretch and softness. These shirts are designed to fit like they did in the 70's and 80's, tailored to the body for a more youthful fit. We suggest thinking a size up when ordering these tees. Our "full cut" shirts are a little more forgiving like the classic beefy tee. The quality and feel remain the same. Be sure to check out our sizing chart to help assure that you'll get the perfect fit on the first try.
Should a tee not fit on the first try, we offer a quick and easy return policy (domestic orders only).
