Arlo Guthrie – Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour

February 16, 2016, 7:30 pm TO 9:30 pm | Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center at University of Missouri-St. Louis | $29 - $79

Fifty years ago, Arlo Guthrie famously took out the trash after Thanksgiving dinner. The hilarious account of events that followed not only kept Guthrie from military service, but also became a platinum selling record and full length motion picture. Now, in celebration of its 50th anniversary, folk icon Arlo Guthrie will perform “The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” in its entirety. Because of its length, approximately 18 minutes, Guthrie only performs the complete song live on the 10 year anniversaries. The Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour will feature the full Massacree along with many favorites from Arlo’s catalog. The concert features a multi-media presentation featuring, among other visual treats, previously unseen images from the Guthrie archives. Performing alongside Guthrie is an ensemble of musicians including Terry Hall (drums), Bobby Sweet (guitar, vocals), Darren Todd (guitar), and his son, Abe Guthrie (keyboards). Pre-show dinners are available for this performance.
