It was also the first song as commented by Gregg during the last show.

Butch called it "the bookends"

The earliest setlist noted on this page is from 5/4/69 in Macon and the first song played was "Black Hearted Woman". However there were a few shows played before then.

It's likely nobody really knows/remembers what the opening track was from their first actual gig. I don't recall reading it in any of the books that I've read about the band.

False, The very first song the ABB ever played live on 3/26/69 was indeed "Trouble No More" Gregg actually said this on stage on 10/28/14 (final show) before they played it one last time as the final song ever performed by the ABB. The "old became new" on that final night.

This discussion is about what the 1st song played at a live gig and not the first song they played with Gregg at the 3/26/1969 rehearsal.

False back at you, their first concert wasn't 3/26/69. That was the date Gregg first joined the band in rehearsal and "Trouble No More" was the first song they worked on in rehearsal. It could not be the first song they played live in concert a few days later, but that is what the original poster is asking about.
