Arlo Guthrie brings Alice's Restaurant Tour to Augusta, Wilmington, Greensboro
Legendary folk music icon Arlo Guthrie has announced Georgia and North Carolina performances as part of his Alice's Restaurant Tour with stops in Augusta January 25, Wilmington January 30, and Greensboro February 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 29 at 10AM at bnpresents.com and via the venues' sales channels.
"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."
Currently on the road for the last year presenting the Re:Generation Tour, Arlo along with his son Abe will be joined onstage on the forthcoming tour with longtime collaborators Terry “A La Berry” Hall (drums), Steve Ide (guitar, vocals) and Carol Ide (vocals, percussion) of his former acclaimed band Shenandoah. Arlo’s daughter Sarah Lee Guthrie, a lauded singer-songwriter in her own right, will open the shows.
