Danny Zelisko Presents
Sweetheart of the Rodeo

50th Anniversary Tour of Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Byrds co-founders Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman together again along with Country All-Star Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives.

Psychedelic rockers the Byrds released Sweetheart of the Rodeo in 1968, introducing Gram Parsons to America's mainstream rock audience. Though tensions inside the band would cause Parsons to leave before the album was released, this highly influential recording paved the way for the popular country/rock sound of bands like The Eagles. Described as "a bittersweet tribute to country music" by The New York Times (1969), Sweetheart of the Rodeo was ranked #117 on Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" (2003).

Read the review from this tour's opening night in Los Angeles. "The evening included a jaw-dropping 28 songs, far more than the 11 tracks on the Sweetheart album, as the musicians offered many other prominent Byrds songs plus well-chosen covers of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Gene Autry, Merle Haggard and Tom Petty."
