“A great reminder of just how effective a bit of absurdity can be when it comes to combating serious issues.” –Rolling Stone
“A quintessential Guthrie composition in the way it turns a true story into an amusing folk tale.” –New York Times
“The strength of ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ is its feel of truth — and how it speaks that truth to power.” –Washington Post
With Opening Guest- Sarah Lee Guthrie
When legendary folk music icon Arlo Guthrie took to the road to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of his seminal song “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” he was incredibly moved by the feedback from enthusiastic fans. Alice’s Restaurant — Back By Popular Demand Tour will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the feature film “Alice’s Restaurant,” originally released in 1969, starring Arlo as himself, directed by famed director Arthur Penn!
“I didn’t think I was gonna live long enough to have to learn ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ again,” Arlo Guthrie says with a smile. “It was a quirky kinda thing to begin with. Nobody writes an 18-minute monologue expecting fame and fortune. The initial success of the song really took me by surprise more than anyone else. The fact that I have contended with it for five decades either by having to learn it again or by not doing it, has been an interesting balancing act. I’m surely looking forward to it again being a centerpiece of my live repertoire.”
