Allman Brothers Band will open its new touring year as it for the last 10 years: with an extended run of dates at New York’s Beacon Theatre.
The Southern rockers are scheduled to perform at the venue on March 14-16, 18, 19, 21-23 and 27, according to promoters. Tickets for all shows will hit the market at 10 a.m. on Friday.
In 2001, the band’s nine-show run at the Beacon grossed more than $1.6 million, according to Amusement Business. In 2000, the band released the live album “Peakin’ at the Beacon” (Sony/550), which was culled from that year’s run at the venue.
The band’s current lineup is Gregg Allman (vocals, keyboards), Butch Trucks (percussion), Derek Trucks (guitar), Marc Quinones (percussion), Oteil Burbridge (bass), Jaimoe (percussion) and Warren Haynes (guitar). (Haynes is scheduled to tour with his band Gov’t Mule from February through early March.)
A new Allman Brothers Band studio album is expected to hit stores sometime this year.
Still absent from the band is founding guitarist Dickey Betts, who hasn’t toured with the Allmans since May 2000.
