Let me start off by saying that I had a good time tonight at the Beacon. The Devon Allman Project opened up at 8:00 promptly and were better than I expected. Devon Allman is a really talented guy and the band was excellent and the highlight was Dreams. But we got only three songs. Yes, they played only three songs as it was a tight schedule with two other bands, Really a shame.

I had no idea what to expect from the Marshall Tucker Band. Last saw them in 1977 and heard some horror stories about their performances in the last couple of years. They are essentially a cover band with one original member, Doug Gray, whose voice is very limited. They were entertaining doing songs like Fire On The Mountain, Canít You see and Take the Highway. No Heard It in. A Love Song as I am guessing their set was running late.

Speaking of running late, Dickey Betts started after 10:00 due to problems with the keyboard player setup. At one point there were like 10 guys trying to figure out what the problem was.

I have to admit that I had no expectations regarding Dickey and his performance which was a good thing. I was just thrilled to see and hear him again. However, he was not prepared to be there tonight. His guitar playing was rudimentary and his singing was often offkey. It really reminded me of seeing Chuck Berry in his later years. Someone on Facebook who claimed to be close to him and had pictures of Dickey backstage at the Beacon claimed that alcohol was an issue. Duane was checking in on Dickey cueing him and the band all night long. The set was cut short due to the late start as there was no Rambliní Man

This seems to be the end for Dickey and live performances. I am okay with that and appreciative that I had a last chance to see him live. Appreciate who he was and the last opportunity to see him.

Nice review. Thanks. It sounds like more of what weíve heard lately. I wonder if the booze thing is true. Iíve been wanting to hear something about The MTB on this and the Skynyrd tour. I missed em in Charlotte a couple of yrs back and they got trashed on a local talk radio station. Iím quite forgiving in these situations I guess and applaud the effort.

In retrospect, I probably should not have mentioned alcohol possibly being involved as I have no way of confirming that. But what struck me the most was how tentative he was in his playing and the lack of confidence he seemed to have. Duane went over to Dickey so many times to remind him that he needed to play something or that he or Fowler were going to play a lead.

I canít imagine how anyone in Dickeyís orbit could think about filming a DVD this week other than it being a money grab. I went to the Beacon with my eyes wide open, had a good time, but this seems like the end of the road for Dickey as a live performer. Just glad I had a chance to say goodbye.

I thought Dicky and his band playing to the sold out house was terrific. Dickey knows his voice has gone through normal aging changes but he belted out Blue Sky admirably and even held some notes extra long. And his playing still rocks!

It was poignant to have Devon be invited on stage by Dickey to perform Midnight Rider.
It was delightful to hear Dickey play Blue Sky and Jessica .
It was a moving and satisfying night for me that I will not forget.

Pretty much what was said.

to add
1 Devon did a great version of dreams
2 Yeah; there was enough going on around him to deflect away from Dickey's limitations. He played mostly rhythm
3 It was sometimes hard from my seat to see who was playing what; but he seemed to elevate during Jessica

And one more thing

You can't bring back the past; but last night was the closest thing to experiencing what March used to be like. Nowhere close regarding the music; but the most excited I've been about going to a show in a long time.

And Duane had a really good solo on Whipping Post

And yeah; I think they are still trying to fix the wayward organ. Show was 1/2 hr delayed (otherwise my timeline prediction was spot on)

had a great time last night.
Dickey is clearly not the player/singer he was but i still loved hearing that tone of voice/guitar again.
(we showed up at 9 at the box office and got tix in row g! pretty low price too!)
Duane has shown substantial improvement as a guitar player-i picked up his cd.
bass guy needs to lower his boom a bit-he's not the best & is way too up in the mix.
sound muddy at times but overall not bad.
Dickey did really nicely in Jessica & WP.
nice hearing Devon again!
a great feeling to be in the beacon again for an"Allman" event...a true honor to be in the room for DICKEY!!!

Isn't his bass player Pedro, the guy that's played with Dickey for like 15 years? I'm not sure, but I assumed he'd be doing this run with him. If it is, Pedro is a killer musician....sounds like a front of house issue. Also worth noting (although kinda sad), he may have been a little high in the mix for a reason.

all a matter of taste,but i'm not a fan of his playing-& he was so loud i could barely hear the drums at times...but this was a detail...all in all a very special night to once again see a musical hero.

Had a nice night at the beacon. Got a floor seat at a decent price. Got in time to see Devon do a nice Multi colored lady. I don't know enough about Tucker Band to know who's who really but I've heard some negative reviews in the past. I was surprised. They were a fun energetic opener. Doug Grey does some show biz type stuff with the crowd but it got the energy in the room up for sure.
So.. onto the main act. The return of Dickey Betts at the Beacon.
The equipment malfunction put a damper on the vibe. When he finally came on, there was a huge ovation but I imagine it being even greater if they struck while the iron was hot.

It was a really great to see him on stage despite the obvious struggles. It's like late era BB King in a way. The fire is still there at times and others not but its never bad. It's almost like rooting for a team in sports. C'mon man... There it is !!! Then an ebb but it's all good. I'd say Blue Sky was my favorite of the night. Midnight Rider with Devon was cool. They really stuck to the song and played it very well.

Glad I got to see one of my all time favorites once again on hallowed ground. I did not think this show would sell out and it did. There were good vibes in the beacon for sure. The people wanted dickey back and they got him for a short spell.

I have to say that Duane does a great job giving Dickey the ques and keeping things on track. Kind of great to see a father and son interaction like that on stage even if it's bitter sweet. Duane took the reigns at the end of whipping post and it was the closest the night came to that old beacon frenzy.

Glad Dickey can say he sold out the beacon one more time...

Pedro is great on bass. I like him higher in the mix. It reminds me of Berry Oakley's sound on the Duane era recording when he's up in the mix. I didn't notice him any higher than when I'd see them in smaller clubs 10 years ago or so.

Yeah, Pedro is on this tour. I wasn't in the room last night, but I've always really enjoyed Pedro's playing, he's always been a nice compliment to Dickey. I did notice he was prominent on one of the Dickey videos I saw from last month, as if "HERE IS WHERE WE ARE IN THIS SONG"

Hi Ya'll,
This long-awaited and much-anticipated tour has left me scratching my head a bit and wondering if there were any alternative ideas discussed before they hit the road. The fact that Dickey and the band wanted to bring it to us more more time is a salute to us, not just because we purchase the tickets, but also because they're handing us a piece of our past that will go on forever. Players, arrangements and skill levels may change, but there's still that connection that we love and will keep grasping for. Hope is eternal!
A bit of armchair quarterbacking......I had hoped that this tour would be different than the DB&GS tours of the last few years. Pedro is a phenomenal bassist, but to my ears his playing has gotten a bit too erratic and sometimes seems to create a bit of a sonic wobble and the band has a difficult time sitting in a groove. Seeing how Dickey's playing style has changed, I think a very slight mellowing of the bass line might better contribute to the overall health of the bands sound. I am not picking on Pedro! Oakley would have made a nice fit as would good ol Dave Stolts. Also, I don't understand why Dickey does not embrace any of the Highway Call material. That song, fairly easy to sing, contains a slower signature Betts solo and still very achievable at his age. Everyone reading this will probably agree that hearing Highway Call in the set would bring a tear-soaked sing along. Maybe next time?
Anyway, I'm glad he's still out there and Dickey will always be my favorite hero! Stay well, everybody!

Dickey couldn't even keep up on a slow Jessica. I had a good time last night, but he can't play anymore. he's lost all timing and it seemed like his hands were very behind what his brain wanted them to do.

Duane was also basically telling him what to do all night

Below is the link to Jessica from last night. Dickey was clearly struggling, and I have no idea what happened at the end when he left the stage before the song was over. Maybe some problem with his guitar? can't tell. Anyway yeah, our guy, Dickey Betts is no longer what he was, not even close. I have got to believe that some of it is just pure rust, this is only his 3rd or 4th show after being out of the scene and not playing for a few years. However his innate musical ability seems to have left him in terms of timing and playing. I don't know if that comes back with playing more gigs, or this is it, take it or leave it.

I wasnít there , wish I could have been. Ill hope for another time.
I realize DB has some health issues , carpal tunnel (sp) etc. and just aging . I think if he lost some belly weight it would help him ALL around. The lighter you are the easier the movements become. Its not everything , but no doubt it would help. I hate being a finger pointer especiallly to my guitar hero , I mean I really hate that Im saying it but it is obvious to me... Im sure he doesnít feel good lugging that extra weight around... I hope someone at home will help make that change with him
Sorry DB...but it could be an easy fix and much healthy for you... I care and love you..
Hope to see ya next time

He broke a string... you can see him nod to Duane to take over the ending... afterwards he came out in thanked the crowd & told em he broke the string but his boys had him covered. And God bless Gregg Allman!

Thanks for the posts everyone who attended. Getting to see Dickie perform at the Beacon had to be a treat one way or the other.

As for the mentions related to alcohol, unless you saw it and the performance was clearly affected in a negative way, let's not go there.

The road goes one forever!

Really loved being back in NYC for a quick 2-day trip.

I thought that Devon's set really got a good vibe and enthusiasm going. I see that they have played I'll Be Around, but an unexpected opener, it was really great. Some cool syncrhonized dance moves out of the bass and guitar players to boot! Dreams was great, as was Multicolored Lady. It was truly one of those times you wanted more, more of that! Just a 30 minute set. But that is what their tour is for, this was a different show tonight.

I am a very big fan of 70s and early 80s MTB. Doug's voice has some issues now. The last time I saw them he tried to sing all the songs (except for an occasional Chris Hicks tune). Now he realizes what he is up against. I actually thought he sounded ok on Running Like The Wind to start. But when he tried singing a second song Fire On The Mountain it was clear that he had issues. So lots of backing vocals by the band supported and the keyboard/flute player did a good job with Take The Highway and Can't You See was mostly just a point to the crowd and hold the mic out affair. The band was fine though, just sad how time takes it's toll on people's abilities with age. Doug must buy tambourines by the case as he passed out 3 or 4 during the show.

If they could've just had The Devon Allman Project opening for Dickey and no MTB adjusting the times accordingly that would've been a stronger show. Many people were very into the MTB set, for me personally the way it went it just stalled what Devon started. Plus MTB must've run late I figure finishing at 9:45. With the stage tear down and setup that didn't allow Dickey much time before the 11 o'clock hour.

The crews did the equipment swap out really quick though. Dickey's stage was completely set up by 10...one problem, Kach's B3/Leslie technical problem held things up quite a bit.

So Dickey comes on at 10:30. Duane and Dickey shared a hug before they began.

Some of the music was rough, not all of it, there were times in the same song where you'd get some good with some bad. Duane directed alot of traffic and as already mentioned he closely monitored how and what his Dad was playing. Duane provided alot of cover when needed, either playing the same thing Dickey was or making up for something else. There were many times that Dickey had to be out on his own, times he was on lead or soloing and some of that went ok and some of it did not. I didn't believe the mix was set up in such a way to mask anything because you could definitely hear him plenty.

I was happy Dickey was there and happy I was there. Plenty of times I smiled. I thought Dickey's singing was probably more steady and consistent than his playing.

He talked to the crowd three times, once to introduce Devon and I'm pretty sure he said something about Gregg but Dickey was talking very fast, was out of breath and just a little hard to understand. Then he also talked after Whipping Post saying something like "we got a couple more". Maybe a 2 minute break and they were back out for Jessica. I didn't know it then, but see now he did break a string. They took the SG and brought out a LP with pick guard after Dickey left while the rest of the band wrapped up Jessica. The SG was the only thing he played all night.

Then Dickey came back out, said something I couldn't hear much of and said something about "the guys covered for me" which was about the string breaking I assume now.

And that was it. It was 11:45. They all walked off. House lights came up and just about everyone in the crowd bolted for the doors. No house music, no road crew coming out to tear down the gear. Dickey did say "we have a couple more" after WP. They had to play Ramblin Man right? Nope. After the stage was left alone for a couple minutes, some crew guys came slowly came and started tearing down. It didn't feel like to me they were done after Jessica, but Dickey must've told them they were done. Once you go past some curfew time, why not get your last song in? Other than Ramblin Man I'm wondering what else they may've chopped from the list due to the late start? It seemed after Seven Turns they were discussing something before going into WP, so maybe that wasn't the original plan.

But it was fine. The show was fine for where Dickey is at this point in his life. I was happy to see him. The singing is a little better than the playing and occasionally you still hear the tone and technique you are looking for just a little fewer and further between at this point.

I hope Dickey is enjoying himself because that goes a long way. There has to be a lot of pressure on Duane to lead and control as much action as he is and I thought he handled that very well.

Sorry I couldn't stay longer Alan. Thanks for dinner Andy!

Did Hemp ever make it to the show with all the flight delays he had?
