Arlo Guthrie announced the latest leg of his Alice’s Restaurant – Back By Popular Demand Tour. Guthrie will spend the bulk of October and November on the road performing the iconic “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” and other material from his career.
“Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” tells the tale of a real incident that began on Thanksgiving Day in 1965. Guthrie released the song as the title track to his 1967 Alice’s Restaurant album. The lengthy tune also inspired the 1969 film Alice’s Restaurant.
Arlo Guthrie begins the fall leg of his Alice’s Restaurant – Back By Popular Demand Tour at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey on October 4. The tour continues with October stops in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. In November, Arlo along with long-time collaborators Terry “A La Berry” Hall, Steve Ide and Carol Ide brings the run to Ohio, Michigan, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Sarah Lee Guthrie, Arlo’s daughter, will open.
