Event type: Ages 19+
Join The Hard Rock Cafe & Cambria as we Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of The Band's Last Waltz. The Hard Rock Cafe is located on the exact site (formerly The Friar's Tavern)where Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks rocked Yonge Street. One September night, Bob Dylan entered the bar, jammed with The Hawks and then brought them with him on his journey into electric Rock & Roll. It happened right here, at 279 Yonge Street. A larger-than-life display sits in our front lobby celebrating the partnerhisp between Dylan. The Band. and Ronnie Hawkins. Our VIP ticket includes a full course Thanksgiving style dinner (The Last Walts took place on US Thanksgiving), we will then be joined by The Hawk, Ronnie Hawkins himself, for a Q&A, and commentary on the Last Waltz film. We will then "Bring it all back home" and recreate the Friar's Tavern feel with a 60's style dance party. Ronnie will be providing our DJ with a playlist of Rock and Soul music. Go- Go- Dancers will be there! Some proceeds from ticket and merch sales will go to World Hunger & Schizophrenia Society of Ontario. 1) Last Waltz 35th VIP Anniversary Package - $65 • 1 Full Course Thanksgiving Dinner @ 6:30 pm • 1 Hard Rock Cafe Classic Tee or Collector’s Pin • 1 Hard Rock Cafe Mantra Tote • 1 Last Waltz Backstage Lanyard • 1 Friar’s Tavern Limited Edition Vintage Collector’s Poster • 2 Raffle tickets for The Last Waltz CD Library (Value $500) • 1 Guaranteed Seat at Last Waltz Celebration Including • Q&A with Ronnie Hawkins • Last Waltz Commentary with Ronnie Hawkins • Yonge Street 60’s Dance Party 2) Last Waltz 35th Anniversary Celebration Ticket $55 • Entry to Last Waltz Celebration Including • 1 Hard Rock Cafe Classic Tee or Collector’s Pin • 1 Raffle Ticket For the Last Waltz CD Library • Q&A with Ronnie Hawkins • Last Waltz Commentary with Ronnie Hawkins
