Arlo Guthrie celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the events that snowballed into the Alice’s Restaurant Massacree, his iconic talking blues narrative that has become an established part of the Thanksgiving tradition, with an unprecedented show.
Backed by his band of friends, Arlo regales the audience with the Massacree in its entirety, along with many of his best-loved classics. Projected exclusive, rare photos from Guthrie’s archives and an amazing light show also make for a remarkable multimedia experience.
THIS FULL-LENGTH CONCERT INCLUDES:
The Motorcycle Song
Chilling of the Evening
St. James Infirmary
Me and My Goose
Coming Into Los Angeles
I Hear You Sing Again

Four-time Emmy® Award-winning director Jim Brown captures this memorable concert commemorating the half-century that has passed since Arlo took out the garbage, landed on the Group W bench, and inspired the Alice’s Restaurant Massacree that became an anti- war, anti-stupid national phenomenon.
