Levon Helm at Summerstage in Central Park (more by Chris La Putt)
Levon Helm

The Band's Levon Helm will step outside of his weekly Midnight Ramble for a show at Wellmont Theatre on February 10th with Peter Wolf. Tickets are currently on AMEX presale and go on regular sale Friday 11/18 at noon. The show, along with a pair of dates that he has lined up at Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston, NY (11/18 and 5/25) are his only non-Midnight Ramble dates announced thus far. Full tour schedule is below.

Meanwhile, the Midnight Ramble continues this weekend with special guest Hook Herrera and on 12/3 Helm will welcome Jimmy Vivino (of Conan's Basic Cable band) and Dawes. Tickets for that show, and all others are still available (either seated or Standing Room Only).

Dawes will also head down to NYC & NJ that same week. Both Maxwell's shows, which Robert Ellis is opening, are now sold out though. You can catch Robert Ellis though during a tour with John Doe that hits City Winery on December 4th. For the X man, it's one of many gigs that will be keeping him busy through New Year's Eve.

All Levon and Dawes and Robert Ellis and X dates and a video below...

^ Goddammit! I was just going to say that!

That is actually Nick Nolte playing the part of Gary Busey as Levon Helm. Duh!

Has anyone ever been to a Midnight Ramble before? Very expensive, but I have heard great reviews.

Posted by Anonymous | November 16, 2011 3:16 PM

Yeah, I've heard nothing but geat things. Folks like My Morning Jacket and more show up to jam. I wish R. Robertson would show up. Of course, I wish lots of Billyburger eatin' fools would shut the fuck up, and that doesn't happen either. So ... eh, go figure.

I am, however, super duper excited for the Lee R. solo album. It's going to make me wondering about SY's future a memory, if only for a moment.

Peace, biddies.

R. Lee Ermey? Get Nick Nolte and Gary Busey on the horn and we'll form a fucking band!

I don't think Levon would ever welcome Robbie Robertson to his home, but the rambles are completely worth every penny despite not getting to hear that many old Band tracks.

You guys are idiots who think robbie robertson would show up. Read some rock history. They don't get along.
Screw Robbie, Levon is where it is at.

Everyone who I have ever met who has been to a ramble say it is the greatest musical experience they have ever had, and worth every penny.

Good to see some great bands getting some coverage here.
