Love For Levon Concert Film To Be Released

A concert film of last October’s stellar Love For Levon show will be released on DVD, CD and Blu-Ray on March 19. An all-star lineup of musicians including Roger Waters, John Mayer, My Morning Jacket, Gregg Allman, Grace Potter, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes, Jorma Kaukonen, Garth Hudson, Joe Walsh, Mavis Staples, Robert Randolph and more came together to pay tribute to legendary drummer Levon Helm. The fantastic two set show, which featured plenty of interesting collaborations and covers of The Band classics, took place with the purpose of raising money for Helm’s upstate New York studio.

The forthcoming film will include two-hours of concert footage, as well as another two hours worth of bonus material. You can watch a trailer for the upcoming film above and the setlist from the show can be found below. Our recap of the Love for Levon Show concert can also be found here.

I was there, incredibly awesome unforgettable show. The only downer is that commersh country singers Church and Bentley get two songs each. Classic case of “moichandising”.

I have Seen the reunion of the Band back in 1984 with the Grateful Dead in Toronto Canada. Levon will surely be missed. I can not believe that Robbie Robertson did not pitch in. Levon was amazing as a musician and an actor. God Bless Levon Helms and hope he is playing with Jerry Garcia, and all of his friends. We love you and will never forget you.

Let not go there with Robbie Robertson, HE WAS THE BAND. No Robbie no band .The rest of the band were great EQUALLY! Richard, Garth,Rick and Levon but Robbie was the creative force look at the credits.

Well, to be clear, Robby received credit for The Band but he was not “The Band” personified. He is a hell of a musician but due to the greasy nature of the business end and the old “Divide and Conquer” technique the band split as a result of Robbie not wanting to tour. At that time the rest of the fellas were discouraged and perhaps a bit checked out due to the BS but I feel they carried on quite well without Robertson in the 80’s and 90’s. Between the Cate bros. and later the addition of Jimmy “effin” Weider, they they rocked our socks off for almost another 20 years releasing a few more albums! So…TAKE THAT! lol. In RR’s defense he was not invited to Love for Levon. Robbie had his “Last Waltz” This was LEVON’s show! Bless you Levon!

Loved Leon not only as musician but as a neighbor, in defense of Robbie….. Rick and Levon were often borrowing money from The Bands account to be used for less then healthy reason, Yes greasy business and sad

An amazing show with unbelievable good, no great vibes. I had goose bumps all nite and got them again just watching this trailer. Thank-you Levon,family & friends.

Where was Jimmy Vivino??? He played the Ramble week after week, for no money, to help Levon. Guess somebody’s jealous…
