Show and Tell: Levon Helm Live in Concert

My husband and brother saw Levon Helm, longtime drummer for the Band, live in concert at Massey Hall this past weekend.  His daughter, Amy Helm, and others accompanied him on stage.  While Helm's voice was a little rough and he appeared to be fighting a cold, Helm lived up to his legendary status.  What impressed them most about the concert was that everyone seemed to truly enjoy what they were doing.  He captivated the audience, young and old.  If you get the opportunity, see this master storyteller in concert.

  1. Levon played drums on 97% of the songs performed. It's hard to believe he's 71 years old and did not miss a beat. Levon is one of my all time favorite drummers. The highlight of the night was when he played drums on and sang "The Band" classic Ophelia. I recommend you go see any of your favorite classic rock bands that are still on the road touring. Each show could be there last.
