That's a quarter of the tickets. And then maybe another 2000-3000 re-sale tickets on Ticketmaster. So, all in all, about 40% of the tickets are on the second-hand market? I wish those could have gone to the fans instead.


They will, this is just sadly part of the game now. You just gotta watch the market and wait it out. Scalpers are terrible people.....wait for the right moment to strike and bleed them out.

He's kidding or BSing or whatevering. They've made it clear this is a one-time thing and we know a couple of them haven't wanted to commit to even a one-off reunion event for the last few years.

They could have if that had been a priority. Shame that it wasn't, Bruce Springsteen comes to mind as one of the first and most ardent proponents of eticketing. Saw one of his tours where our row 22 tickets were this type. Bottom line is you showed up with a photo ID and the same credit card you used to buy the tickets or your butt was on the sidewalk listening from the outside. TM is getting to be way too big for their pants...

Any confirmation on what guests will be there?

Other than Chuck they've kind of shot down the idea of guests, but there's also some open speculation whether anyone other than Warren (or Oteil or Chuck, or Marc?) is going to sing. So it's a little bit of a mystery at this point.

It would be a monster of a work load for Warren to sing all of them, so I’m very interested to see how they handle this. Oteil already said they aren’t playing Franklins Tower, so I can’t think of what standard classics he would sing. I wish they’d invite Lamar Williams Jr or Mike Mattison to sing some of the tunes when Warren needs to rest. We’ll see. If anyone can sing and play guitar for 3 plus hours, it’s Warren Haynes.

I don't know if it's a monster workload - it depends on whether you're picturing this as a 'regular' show that lasts maybe 2 1/2 or 3 hours or a 4-hour marathon. Either way, you figure there will be a set break and maybe 45 minutes of instrumentals if not more. But for now this is an interesting question mark because you could have some unique guests or opportunities if they want to take them. Marc did a cover of Midnight Rider, so why not have him sing that? Chuck could sing Southbound or any cut he plays on. Why not have Oteil sing Statesboro Blues or You Don't Love Me or one of his favorites, It's Not My Cross to Bear? There's no specific reason he would, but why not?

if Warren can do full vocals for a Mule show, which tend to be epic, he can do it for the Bros.

There might be one or two moments where someone will play a solo, so he can catch his breath then.

Somewhere up in this thread someone speculated about a shed tour. I think
that is unlikely. However I don't think you are too far off with this. *This* show is a one off as far as DT is concerned. But. Jack in for DT at another "one off" somewhere at a completely different location in the future seems VERY likely to me.

They need to get someone with a killer voice to sing Gregg's songs.

Otiel mentioned Lamar Jr. I haven't heard him but I've heard he's good.


I just don't know who could do Gregg justice.


Zach Brown seems like a reasonable choice.


Having Warren do it just seems to Business As Usual.

Warren Haynes has a killer voice... has anyone ever been at a Gov't Mule show and said, 'This band would be good if they just had a singer."? "Business as usual" for the ABB is better than anything else out there.


I understand if they bring in someone else because the ABB typically had more than one person who sang lead and Warren may not want it to be "The Warren Haynes Show". Lamar Williams, Jr. is very good.

No reasonable connection either. Lamar or Jack or Susan are really the only options for additional lead vocalists.

Susan can sing Stand Back as she’s done with the band before
Jack can sing Dimples. He also does Midnight Rider with his own band occasionally
Mike Mattison
Lamar Williams Jr.
Junior Mack has done Ain’t Wastin Time No More with them at the Beacon before
Jimmy Hall can sing anything
Warren actually did quite a few Gregg songs when Gregg was sick during the last March Beacon run

If this is being recorded, I really wish they would (know I’m probably alone in this view) play Egypt and Bag End so that there’s actually a formal released recording of these tunes. I expect they’re going to do a lot of instrumental already with this lineup (Mt Jam, Liz Reed, Hotlanta)

I don’t think anyone needs to have a connection to the ABB to sing. It’d be nice but not necessary. What they need is a good voice.

Zach Brown has sounded fine all the times he has sang with Gregg. He’s not perfect but this is supposed to an event and Warren singing Gregg’s songs is something we’ve all seen multiple times with both Mule and filling in for when Gregg was sick of ceded songs to Warren. As great a singer as he is, it just feels like an all too familiar “Gregg couldn’t make it” show to have Warren sing all Gregg’s songs.

They need to get someone with a very good voice.

I don’t care if it’s a super star or an unknown, they have to get someone to make this thing unique

Definitely needs to be about the music and not superstar status, but I would prefer the guest singers/players would have some relationship to the band. If this is the last time they're going to play, I'd hate to for it to be someone not in the circle (ex. if someone random sings Melissa while Jackie P isn't there at all). If Zac B is there to sing (who has sang with Gregg before), someone please text me when it's over and I'll come back from the bathroom/beverage line. Nothing against Zac, but I'm not flying to NYC to go see him when I can see him right down the road.

That being said, I am going right down the road to see Jack Pearson play tonight hahah

What makes it unique is: it's the only concert this group is ever going to give, it's a final salute to the ABB, and it's intended to be the last time Jaimoe, Marc, Oteil, Warren and Derek all play together. There are other things they can do on top of that and nobody would complain about them, but that's special already. I have no opinion about who they should or shouldn't get to sing, but the decision to have Reese Wynans and Duane Trucks play with them tells you they'll probably keep this focused on people with very strong connections to the band.

Well I've been watching ticket prices on Stubhub keep on falling week after week....so instead of just getting in and sitting up high I am now able to get into the 100 section in the back....if prices keep spiraling down I may be able to get down onto the floor.

It's a beautiful thing to watch the ticketscam machine implode every once in awhile.

Noticing the same. Prices falling rapidly and early. Show is a month away and the professional scalpers are in panic mode. Lots of options to purchase tickets below face value already ......

You are not alone, brother. Just to hear how this lineup would approach / nail those tunes is reason enough for me!
