"The Last Waltz 40 Tour," a celebration of the Band's 1976 star-studded farewell concert, will hit the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts on April 2.

Tickets, $74.50-$200, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Tobin Center box office,  online at tobi.tobincenter.org, and by phone at 210-223-8624.

The tribute concert band is fronted by Warren Haynes, singer and guitarist with Gov't Mule and, previously, the Allman Brothers Band. He'll be joined onstage by  bass player and producer Don Was, country singer Jamey Johnson, New Orleans piano man Dr. John (who took part in the 1976 concert) and a horn section playing the charts Allen Toussaint wrote for The Last Waltz.

The Band -- Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel -- gained fame as Bob Dylan's backing band before releasing a series of acclaimed albums on their own featuring songs such as "The Weight," "Up on Cripple Creek" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

Their farewell concert, featuring guests such as Dylan, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison and Neil Young, was filmed by director Martin Scorsese and released in 1978 as "The Last Waltz." It's one of the most acclaimed concert films in rock history. 

"The Last Waltz 40" concert, which was launched at Jazz Fest 2016 in New Orleans, features songs by the Band, Dylan and their guests.
