I went to get tix for the Allman Family Revival for 12/28/19 at the Beacon (the presale is ROCK). Regular onsale is 2tmw. I kept hitting options for a number of pairs in the lower 15 Orch and 1st Row Loge, Time after time I get "Sorry these tickets are gone. Try again, Try again, Try again, It was like fishing, I kept getting a nibble, but no fish.
This happened for an hour, I kept trying and finally got me 2 pairs, Row G and Row J. I will offload one set to a friend, I see 1st Row loge pop up again and for Sh#ts and giggles I hit those and I could have got them, I would've loved to have grabbed them 1st, but I didn't.
It isn't billed as an Allman Betts Band event, I'm salivating as to exactly what show I just got tix for? I'm hoping Allman Family Revival includes Dickey, Jaimoe, Warren, Derek, & others. A guy can dream can't he?

My last TicketMaster "game" went like this: Dylan show - Ponte Vedra (last year) - a couple of folks around here seem to have black belts in TicketMaster. These seasoned pro's have advised me to not take the first tickets offered. Well, first I tried to get 4 seats together - which was no problem ... until the site advised me that my selection would create an "orphan" - and could I please try again. I hit BEST AVAILABLE (whatever) - and some pretty average seats popped up. Thinking that I could surely do at east a little better, I decided to cast my line again. Next set was noticeably worse than the first. I tried again ... only to get a message from TicketMaster that, "... someone seems to be using your account and card to get concert tix ..." - and then LOCKING ME OUT of TicketMaster altogether. I had to get on another computer - different browser to finally get 4 seats in the rear of the Upper Nosebleed section. Lesson learned - quit while you're ahead!

The third annual The Allman Family Revival has been expanded to three cities for its 2019 celebration of the late Gregg Allman’s birthday. The Allman Betts Band will open each concert ahead of a guest-filled set featuring performances of The Allman Brothers Band and Gregg Allman classics and an “all hands on deck” encore.
Once again, The Fillmore in San Francisco will host The Allman Family Revival on December 7. Additional stops have been added at the new Mission Ballroom in Denver on December 8 and New York City’s Beacon Theatre — a venue that hosted the ABB 238 times — on December 28.
Guests for San Francisco include Todd Park Mohr, Eric Krasno, Robert Randolph, Jimmy Hall, Samantha Fish and Jimmy Vivino. Krasno, Randolph, Hall and Vivino are also aboard for Denver, while confirmed guests for NYC thus far are Krasno, Robin Zander, Randolph, Hall, Mohr and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer.
A portion of proceeds from each concert will benefit School Of Rock and its mission “to help fund after school music programs that are picking up the slack for the alarming lack of in-school music programs declining nationwide.” Tickets for all three shows go on sale this Friday, September 13 at 10 a.m. local time for San Francisco and Denver and 12 p.m. ET for New York City.

Thanx for the info, Nice line-up, I'd love to see Samantha Fish come up, I had show conflicts a couple times and haven't yet caught her. Recently I gave my Town Hall tix to my wife and daughter when she opened for Jackie Greene, but I had Winery tix for Jorma.
I'm leaving soon for the city for the Song Of Love benefit @The Cutting Room, Jimmy Vivino is the ring leader w/Larry Campbell, Joan Osborne, Scott Sharrard, and others. I love Jimmy from the old Levon days and has had some great shows all around, The Hubert Sumlin show jumps out.
I'm wondering who's gonna tackle Jimi and Alvin tonight.
