1: thetoweringfool + the Mrs. + 6 Peachheads. 2: .......So..how great is this?! Back where it Begins w/ Betts!! Love him or not...the Man was heavily responsible for so much of the music we hold dear...those tunes, man! Sadly, it won't be long before that flickering magic is silenced for good. Sure, Derek n Warren, etc can bear the torch but ultimately those are just covers. Can't wait for Dickey to feel the love in a sold-out auditorium. So...where is everyone partying? I'm talking to you, Maconites. This needs to be a throwdown of biblical proportions...we may not all be able to meet-up on these hallowed grounds again. Please share any/all info or suggestions here. The Road Goes On Forever!

Wish I could be there. Don't get off for the summer until June 6th.

As much as I enjoy latter lineups of the ABB, some more than others, the REAL Allman Brothers was the original band. Listen to Fillmore East and the live tracks on Eat A Peach. Only Duane, Dickey and Berry's styles can made the band sound like that. With all due respect to Warren, Derek, Chuck, Dangerous Dan, the several base players etc, I have yet to hear One Way Out, Trouble No More, Statesboro Blues, Done Somebody Wrong, You Don't Love Me, Hot Lanta and Liz Reed equaled by any other line up.

Agree 100% and I bet Warren & Derek would agree.

Original band was iconic and changed music.

The Allman Brothers after Duane created magical music. No excuse needed for enjoying the heck out of it (it was a real stretch to bring that cold water bucket and throw it on this thread).

That said, I'll be in Macon. Looking forward to see Devon+Duane and Dickey and then Jaimoe & the incredible Jasssz Band. May not make it early for any pre-game coming down after work from ATL.

You are not the arbiter of who the Allman Brothers are no matter how many times you repeat yourself with the exact same comments that don't belong in this thread in any event.

I'm there... certainly going to hit up the big house in the afternoon. Fried Chicken at the H&H... ( take extra Lipitor)

I think Berry Oakley Jr. is doing some type of pre show deal & Jaimoe got an after show... full day for sure.

Thanks for that Hotlantatim. No **** ...we all know Duane was the general. Replacing the most firebrand axeman who ever lived is obviously impossible. Fvck me...this site is flatlined. Anyway...regarding the intent of this thread; Ocmulgee Brewpub looks like a winner (if anyone reads this).

Well this thread sure took a fun turn...

Anyways...Everyone who is going, enjoy the shows! I really hope they are great and there are still some magic moments to be had. I wish I could go but of course this is the only week in May I had any plans before Dickey made the big tour announcement. Maybe I'll try to make it up to Peach or NYC this Summer.

I am going to the Beacon in July; and I'm as excited as hell. Still hold my view that the lineup that ended in 2014 gave us a better decade than keeping the "originals" together would have because the young blood made for longer shows with more variety (2 1/2 hrs with intermission) than a Gregg/Dickey lineup would have (75 mins-no break) if continued

But live in the moment; and this is by far the best the moment has to offer. I saw Berry but never Duane. I saw the brothers again in 73 after Berry's death when it was "Dickey's Band." The carousel goes forward; just grab for whatever ring you can. Too many deaths the last few years.

Everyone enjoy and post videos

Iím gonna hit The Beacon show also and am looking forward to seeing some reviews and comments from these upcoming shows. Almost every incarnation of the ABB played some of the best music ever and some were certainly better than others. I never saw Duane, but of the 50+ Beacon shows I went to over 20 odd years there were plenty of them that were as good as anything I have ever seen and can stand side by side with what the original lineup laid down for sure - not the same or better, just great. Enjoy these last visits with one of the originals and letís see what the next generation can do now also.

tbomike. You don't like me do you. You don't like the FACT the last line up or any other line up can't match the original lineup. I'm going to say what I want on any thread as many times as I want. Don't like what I write? Don't read it. You must be one of a few I've encountered who think the last line up was the best version of the ABB. Only someone who never saw the original band hitting the note at The Fillmore East or West would make such a mistake. And I bet Warren and Derek agree with me. But you do it your way. I could care less.

Oh but he disagrees.

One last tour and then hopefully Blackey and LUKE and the rest of the angry Dickey fans can go back to where the came from.

Flying down to my house in Boca Raton on Friday and one reason is to catch the show on Saturday. Going to try to stay in spoiler mode until then. I am also going to the Beacon and as excited as I am in seeing Dickey, I am also fascinated to see Marshall Tucker. Curious if they are going to be a train wreck.

I like all that stuff by the originals but Brothers and Sisters is my favorite. Sorry.

Am with ya blackey, I know where you were coming from -- it's only on the ABB site where enthusiastic talk about the original band elicits negativism -- no need to apologize Walter, if B&S is your thing, great -- I dig that record To The Nines too (what ABB fan doesn't) -- they've never played Pony Boy or Jelly Jelly, they belong ONLY to that record & time

Berry Oakley, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, Jai Johanny Johansen, Gregg Allman - - Duane Allman

there was none ever-better to my ears either -- do not mean to be an arbiter or throw cold water on the thread -- hope you good folks have a great time tomorrow night (wonder if anything from the warmup gig last night )
I love the ABB

There's some video up on the rehearsal show. Such a precious time to see Dickey Betts on stage again. His legend will grow as one of the greatest guitarists and songwriters...and deservedly so. His son Duane and Devon Allman are so devoted and respectful to both of their Dad's body of work, so great to see

I'm leaving tomorrow morning from SC with my special friend. Just glad to see Dickey and Devon again.
We will probably go to Rose Hill to pay our respects to the brothers. I also have relatives in Rose Hill and Riverside. The weather forecast seems to be a bit better that it was earlier in the week.
