Wilco’s Nels Cline Joins The Complete Last Waltz Concert

Wilco guitarist Nels Cline has joined the lineup for this Thanksgiving’s The Complete Last Waltz. The all-star tribute to Levon Helm and The Band will take place at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre on November 24.

Additionally, actors Michael Gladis ( Mad Men ), Beth Behrs ( Two Broke Girls ) and Mike Kelly ( House of Cards ) will be on hand to read the spoken word portion of the evening originally performed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Michael McClure and others.
