Arlo Guthrie in concert

It was 50 years ago, 1965, when Arlo Guthrie took out the trash following a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat. This hilarious account of actual events that precluded Arlo from military service (1966), became a platinum selling record (1967) and full length motion picture (1969), and has become as traditional a part of Thanksgiving as cranberry sauce.

Folk icon Guthrie brings to the stage, for the first time in a decade, The Alice’s Restaurant Massacree in its entirety. Because of its length (approx. 18 minutes), Arlo has only added the complete Alice’s Restaurant Massacree to his touring menu 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.
