Celebrating the release of his new album “Electric Dirt” this week, Levon Helm is hitting the road a little more than usual to support the new CD. This summer he’s touring with the Black Crowes.
And he’ll make a stop at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Saturday, August 15, joining Jefferson Starship, Ten Years After, Canned Heat, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Mountain, Tom Constanten and Country Joe McDonald for the Heroes of Woodstock concert.
But he’s still hosting those Saturday night Levon Helm Midnight Rambles at his home studio in Woodstock whenever he can. Tickets are a little pricey – $150 – but you’ll likely never get more up-close-and-personal with abona fide Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and his band.
Tickets usually sell out pretty fast, but there are still tix available for many of the summer shows. Of course, Levon and his band perform, as well as at least one special guest performer.
Here’s the summer schedule:
July 4: With Jimmy Vivino and his band. SOLD OUT
July 11: With Arlen Roth
July 18: With John Simon. SOLD OUT
August 1: With Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck
August 8: With the Rowan Brothers
August 22: With Robbie Dupree
September 5: With the Chris Bergson Band
September 19: With Cleve and Sweet Mary
