I saw them after I took my girlfriend who I broke up w/ the day before... I got so drunk i couldn't remember the show and I bought those cheesy ass roses and made a fool outta myself... after that show, I made sure I had my head right every time they came to NC.

My first show was in 1969 at the Atlanta Municipal Auditorium. A band called Sweetwater opened for them, and it was a concert for Ga. State students that I crashed as a Ga. Tech student. The next time after that was at Piedmont Park. The story has been written up here in more detail earlier. I don't want to bore anybody by repeating myself ...

My first time was on the Win Lose or Draw tour at the University of Kentucky. The roadies played then Charlie Daniels. I Did something that kept me up for a couple days. And I sat next to about half of the UK basketball team that won the NIT that year. They opened with Don't Want You No More>INMCTB. If I remember correctly closed with Les Brers and a Whipping Post encore.

I was young at the time.
I took my mom to the ABB show for her birthday and because she's been a longtime fan but never had the money to go to a show. This was one of the 30th Anniversary shows.
The band was amazing, my mom was impressed that they could play like that at their age.
She talked about seeing lots of bands way younger than the ABB who don't have the energy/talent of the ABB.
Watching Derek Trucks perform on stage was one of my greatest memories.
I'm also glad that I got to see at least one show before Dickey got outed.
Seeing the band live changed my outlook on life and my mom and I had some interesting discussions about things that make the walls undulate during the set break.

It was a fun night.
One of my best memories shared with my mom.

Here's the setlist.
True Gravity
Ain't Wastin' Time No More
You Don't Love Me
Good Times
Southbound
Midnight Rider
Good Clean Fun
Blue Sky
Set II:
Acoustic:
Seven Turns
Melissa
Electric:
J.J.'s Alley
Trouble No More
Change My Way of Living
Dreams
End Of The Line
Back Where It All Begins
In Memory of Elizabeth Reed
Encore:
No One To Run With

1975 at the New Haven Coliseum. Muddy Waters and Grinderswitch opened. I remember them playing Louisiana Lou and the group I was with wondering why they bothered. The next song was Les Brers, which seemed to answer the question.

i didn't realize that was a real band! that was the name of the band in "almost famous".


to think i gave away my first ABB ticket - circa 1996 - because the Ozfest was the next day and i didn't feel up to doing both......well, i can tell you that my two friends really appreciated those tickets too.

turns out my first ABB show was at the Beacon three years ago. i can think of worse venues to see the brothers!

March 30, 1972 Mobile, Al.
Expo Hall downtown not Ladd Stadium as setlist states.
Duane had passed away about 5 months before.

Left Monroeville, Al with 5 other 16-17-18 year olds. Friend's dad him let him use the car.
Blitzed before we got out of Monroe County. Vince Vance and the Valients opened.
We were in the back. Berry and Dickey rocked. Gregg growled and the drummers cooked.
Stateboro Blues was disapointing, as we were use to the Duane playing on Fillmore East. By the time the got the Liz Reed, Whipping Post and Mountain Jam we were some happy boys. got home about 2:30. 11th Grade Engish at 8 the next morning. I remember the concert do not remember the class.

April 30, 1973 at the Nassau Coliseum, second row center.

Ripping show...they were rock stars by then...the venue was buzzing...The band was on fire...I went to see the Allman Brothers and left thinking Dickey Betts was the Allman Brothers...

Aug 31, 1991, Holman Stadium in Nashua, New Hampshire (minor league baseball park). Not much of a story to go with it, but despite the rather windy conditions I was hooked. Blues Traveller opened and I had only barely heard of them at the time.

December 9.1972.The first show after Berry passed,started out with Gregg on guitar.Pretty hot show,they were still shell shocked but soldiered on very well,we were still trying to get used to the new "Chuck era" sound and missing Duane big time like Billy said. Dr.John and the Rockets were opening acts.Two young ladies drove 4 hours each from Michigan way to pick me and my buddy up and take us to the show,one of their fathers owned a liquor store.Those were the days....

Seven Turns tour in Atlanta. I went with my brother Bill and we had a blast. Until about two years ago I used to wear my Seven Turns t-shirt to every Allmans show I went to, but it finally bit the dust It was a good show, but nothing compared to the Lakewood shows in 91-93. That was when I really got hooked.

An unbeievable time in my life...May 26, 1979. The night before the Indy 500. 2 days before my 18th birthday AND high school graduation.

The excitement started with the news of the reunion itself....then came the new lp which was fantastic.... the dates were released and Indy fell right into place. The show was terrific, everything I thought it would be and more. Sat right where we always did back in the day. Did not get a Ramblin Man though....we left on a high but shaking our heads in disbelief on that one.

Maket Square Arena was always known for being the place where Elvis gave his last show. For me it was always the place of my baptism into brotherhood.

Saw Gregg on the Laid Back tour, 74. Didn't catch another until there was a reunion picnic at Capricorn's lake house in NE Macon in 78 or 79.

The band in Almost Famous was Stillwater, Linnie. Coincidentally (are there conincidences?) there was a band from middle GA, signed by Capricorn no less, that was named Stillwater. Some of you will remember their hit, Mind Bender. About a talking guitar...good band.

9/93 Tuscaloosa AL....First and only show I took a date to, plus the first time I had ever taken X. Boy what a night and during the first part of the show she went to get us some water and never returned. Come to find out the next day that she had been arrested for public intoxication due to not being able to walk straight after the X kicked in......

No, I have no recollection of the show whatsoever. I was on the 3rd row in the middle of the stage and I was asleep most of the show due to various factors beyond my control. I am told it was a great show, however.... I do remember Charlie Daniels playing Uneasy Rider and Long Haired Country Boy in the opening act, though.

July 1979 Manor Downs Racetrack Austin, Texas was a private in the Army and some friends turned me into the brothers. Johnny Winters Opened. A few hits of "snoopy" and some good Pot and Beer, we had a blast. You could bring your own cooler in then we were LOADED to say the least.

You didn't ask, but...

best show I saw: Thanksgiving, 1975. I remember it like it was...28 years ago. Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays, and this day I woke up knowing I was going to eat turkey, watch football, and then drive into Manhattan (as a passenger, of course) to see the Brothers at Madison Square Garden. I had sixth row, center seats and the band was on fire. Here is the setlist

1. Don't Want You No More
2. It's Not My Cross To Bear
3. Long Time Gone
4. Midnight Rider
5. Ramblin' Man
6. Win, Lose, Or Draw
7. In Memory of Elizabeth Reed
8. Can't Lose What You Never Had
9. One Way Out
10. High Falls
11. Nevertheless
12. Statesboro Blues
13. Jessica
14. You Don't Love Me
15. Les Brers In A Minor
16. Whipping Post
Opening act: Grinderswitch

I specifically remember the band being very hot, and since it was a holiday the Garden was absolutely jumping. You will note the song sequence from One Way Out and on...the Les Brers was mind blowing, with a great drum solo, and the "disco ball". One of the best days and nights of my life...

Ahh, Manor Downs.

Went to my last Willie Nelson July 4th Picnic there.

Got heat stroke and spent an hour in a first aid tent.

What fun.
