As Blurt reported on Monday, an all-star lineup of musicians will perform The Complete Last Waltz, a song-for-song tribute to The Band’s final concert (documented by auteur Martin Scorsese in his 1978 concert film The Last Waltz). Today we learned that Wilco guitarist Nels Cline will join the lineup which already includes appearances from members of Ween, Dr. Dog, Warren Haynes Band, Vetiver, Nada Surf, Gomez and others.
