Event description

Description

Prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor, and activist Arlo Guthrie returns with Alice’s Restaurant – Back By Popular Demand Tour! This tour marks the 50th Anniversary of the feature film Alice’s Restaurant. Come celebrate the iconic figure with songs from his distinguished and varied career spanning nearly 60 years!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the movie Alice’s Restaurant, based on the song by Arlo Guthrie. Guthrie wrote a folk song about a series of unbelievable events that began on Thanksgiving in 1965. “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” struck a chord with the anti-war counterculture. By 1967 Guthrie had gone from playing small clubs to playing festivals and stadiums.

“Arthur Penn (who had just finished filming Bonnie & Clyde) heard the record when it came out in 1967,” recalled Guthrie in an interview with NYS Music. “He also happened to live in Stockbridge, where the events took place. He thought it would be a great idea to make it into a movie. And he did.”

“I didn’t think I was gonna live long enough to have to learn ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ again,” Arlo Guthrie says with a smile. “It was a quirky kinda thing to begin with. Nobody writes an 18-minute monologue expecting fame and fortune. The initial success of the song really took me by surprise more than anyone else… I’m surely looking forward to it again being a centerpiece of my live repertoire.”

For this tour, Guthrie will be joined on stage by longtime collaborators Terry “A La Berry” Hall (drums), Steve Ide (guitar, vocals), and Carol Ide (vocals, percussion). His daughter, singer/songwriter Sarah Lee Guthrie, will be opening each performance.
