Dickey ... if you or somebody close to you reads HTW and the Forum section -- please play again if you want to. Believe me, there will be an audience for you and we're not talking about saloons and bars. But the most important thing is that you feel like getting up in front of people and playing again. That brings a smile to all of our faces. So, go for it...

PS -- Please make sure the Philadelphia area is on your tour schedule (of course, I had to throw that in...).

Tower theater and Beacon I'm thinking. And re: this tour. Dickey is a somnabitch with a long memory. Packed house at the Beacon is revenge for the last man standing.

For a certain infamous fax. It is no secret that the ABB played better venues after the split. With Butch and Gregg gone I just think that this is part of the motivation for the timing

I have no beef. I always say we got 15 years of 2 1/2 hr shows that the original lineup. Would never had been able to match. That lineup would have played 75 min at westbury

But re Dickey I think it bothered him a tad more

Excuse me for posting on this subject again, but I forgot something important -- Dickey is obviously gauging interest from the fans and whether they would support him if he does decide to tour again. Members of the ABB extended family have to make sure he understands that we very much want it to happen and how excited we are at just the possibility of seeing him play live again. So, let's pump it up because we all know how precious time is and how fleeting, and this might never happen again. Pax...

Gonna throw in my .02 here.... Is this for love of the music?...or for the $$?..In this case it would make a difference for me...I've always thought an acoustic show with another famous performer would rock. The two of them would play songs and tell stories, talk to the crowd and laugh. Dickey with Fogerty, Rossington or Gibbons would be spectacular! Two chairs, two guitars and away we go.....I would travel for a show like that....Small halls and history.

If it's just Dickey and a cast of players hitting "Ramblin' Man" and "Jessica"......No thanks!

C' Mon Dickey, just imagine the fun.

Dickey/Richard does not need money.

The Allmans and even Dickey's band are an east coast band and have been for decades.

While I like your idea and think it would have been great had Gregg and Dickey done this when Gregg was still alive, I don't see that tour selling well or doing well today in late 2017.

uh... unless I missed something Dickey is not the "last man" standing.

That being said... I hope to see Dickey at least one more time.

Columbus, Pittsburg, NYC, ATL would be ok by me...

Looking forward to the Devon Allman Project tomorrow night at the Fillmore.

Will be wearing my Dickey Betts Highway Call t-shirt.

Yes, Dickey/Richard does not need money, but concert promoters, executives who own venues, etc. would love to get as much money as they can from selling tickets to see Dickey Betts.

If Dickey plays any shows, let's hope Peter Shaprio isn't involved at all.

re: last man Jaimoe seemed relatively distance from the three waring parties. I haven't buried him prematurely

If he isn't sober i will pass.

If he is truly dedicated to putting out the very best music he can, I am on board.

I would love to see him knock this out of the park and then follow it up with an opening slot for the TTB this summer with the Wheels of Soul tour 2018.

The road does not go on forever, he should get it while he can. I am just concerned about the quality of the product.


Someone posted this in another forum as a dream line-up.

Dickey - Guitars and Vocals
Jack Pearson - Guitars
Oteil - Bass and Vocals
Jaimoe and D. Trucks - Drums
Marc Q. - Percussion
Chuck Leavell - Keys
Jimmy Hall - Harp and Vocals
Randall Bramlett - Sax and Keys
Bonnie and Bekka Bramlett - Vocals

This would be incredible. Even if it was a one-off deal [Ryman Nashville] with some guests, taped for TV special. Vince Gill should be asked to participate.

that is an incredible, and expensive, lineup. But I would buy it immediately. And most of them are active musicians with nice paying gigs - I don't see it happening.

I do think that whatever the lineup is, it would need some players that can really push Dickey and also be a draw unto themselves. The second guitarist especially. I hope someone underwrites this and it's not dickey doing this out of pocket.

Now I'm even more excited for tonight! Didn't know they'd add B.O. Jr., Brooklyn Allman, Robert Randolph. Feeling fortunate they picked our neck of the woods to kick off the tour.

"The Devon Allman Project with special guests Duane Betts, Berry Oakley Jr, Alex Orbison, G Love, Brooklyn Allman, Robert Randolph, Bobby Whitlock, Coco Carmel, Samantha Fish, Luther & Cody Dickinson, Jimmy Hall, & Peter Levin to perform on what would have been Gregg Allman's 70th birthday!"

Yeah it would be some kind of lineup for sure. Wow, that would be great!

And I know it wouldn't happen given the history but throw in Jimmy Herring if one can dream.
