Today, Arlo Guthrie releases Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Massacree, a 2-CD recording of the critically acclaimed and consistently sold-out tour commemorating the events that inspired the Thanksgiving classic anti-war anthem "Alice's Restaurant Massacree." This release features the entire two sets of the performance as seen on PBS, recorded live at The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA, virtually a hometown show for Guthrie. Accompanied by his son, Abe Guthrie, on keyboards, Arlo is backed by a full band including long-time drummer Terry "A La Berry" Hall, guitarist and fiddle player Bobby Sweet, and bass player Darren Todd. This incredible Alice's 50th Tour showcases what makes Arlo exceptional -- songs and stories effortlessly interwoven creating an intimate, touching and hilarious evening.
