I caught Lamar Williams sing with Les Brers wow totally impressed. He has the historical ties
and never heard anyone come as close to Gregg on the vocals. I look forward to seeing how that
is handled. Giant shoes to fill.

Got 1 ticket, $50 plus $15 fees. Top of the room. Wanted to make sure I'm in the building at worst. At best, I'll play the secondary market and the other presales and see what happens.

I was trying to find the link between the deceased last lineup member and who was chosen to fill in.

I think everybody knows what Duane Trucks's link to Butch (and Derek) is. But nbd.

Replacing Gregg's vocals is the big scramble to me. I guess Warren will have to sing for Gregg and sing Blue Sky too.

If they're not going to have any other guests you'd expect Warren to sing almost everything. It'd be interesting if they don't do it that way because Oteil and Chuck can both sing and Marc even did a cover of Midnight Rider a couple of years ago, but that seems like the way it would go.
quote:
I would imagine they will do a song or two off Hitting The Note but the rest will be heavy on songs by the original lineup and Brothers and Sisters.

For sure. Imagine a slimmed-down version of what they played at the last show: almost everything that night was taken from the first four albums, plus Southbound from B&S and High Cost of Low Living from Hittin' the Note and Good Morning Little Schoolgirl as an extra Warren feature. I'm sure they'll mix things up from that setlist a little but that seems like it'll be the template.
quote:
Dickey contributed more to the Allman Brothers than any man on that stage including Jaimoe.

It doesn't work this way and it's not a contest. Reading comments like this it feels like you think you're arguing with someone, anyone, about his contribution to the band over the years, but literally nobody disagrees with this whatever they think of more recent stuff.
quote:
Dickey is the wealthiest Brother. 40 million. And he deserves every penny of it

I can see you know your stuff where the band is concerned, but I have a feeling you're getting this from some kind of celebrity net worth site, so you should know those things are a complete joke that just make money off people Googling stuff. They do not know anything and you should not take them seriously. Even carefully researched estimates like the ones you get on Forbes are probably way off and should be taken with huge grains of salt.

One of the things that is awesome about the Allman Brothers is their amazing, diehard fans. The Allman Brothers made it seem like an extended family early on, and managed to keep a much larger Brotherhood of fans of sorts up until the end. It also leads to one of my ABB-related pet peeves - fans who think they are some kind of insider expert. You hear them in line at shows blabbering about what a clueless roadie told them or repeating widely distributed stories they read in an article as if they were there. Almost everyone here has read the same books, articles, and gossip over the years. No need to repeat it ad nauseam here. Just enjoy the music that remains, let the dead rest.

My favorite story, and I've told it here before, was from seeing the ABB in lawn seats in Hartford in 2006, when they were playing with Tom Petty.

The guy behind us looked and sounded exactly like Joe Walsh, complete with bandanna and shades. He was watching the band and asking everyone around, "Which one's DUANE, man?"

Hah JimSheridan, we were at the Rosemont in Chicago ('05 or '06) and moe. opened. When the ABB took the stage and the lights came on we noticed Jack P. was playing instead of Warren (amazing show). My buddy and I looked at each other like, "where's Warren" but also very delighted Jack was there. The random guy to my left looks at us and says, "Where's Dickey Betts?", the only thing we could answer with was...."check your fax machine".....

there's a seat chart with the seat numbers floating around somewhere on the web, not sure how to attach it here. But if you're looking at the stage from your seats, the numbers go left to right

God bless you, Bob. Somebody needed to say it. This dynamic is surely getting old.

HA! Good one! I got one from 2004. I saw the ABB here in Indy at The Lawn Whiteriver Park downtown. About half way through the show three guys came in looking like they just got off the golf course,beers in hand and appeared to be feeling pretty good. One leaned over to me and ask "which one is Dickey Betts?' I politely obliged his question and pointed to the gentleman on the left hand of the stage playing the bass. Could not resist that one!

Based on presale availability I donít think this is going to sell out unless they start leveraging dynamic pricing down. Lots of availability. The jump from $99 to $179 is huge and the next jump seems to be to $269.

Iím tempted to grab good seats at the $179 price point but leaning towards waiting. I canít see the resale market for this show being too strong unless they start adding special guests or dropping rumors.

You know Butch wasn't happy at all about that album, right?...

When someone else & I said this we got blasted, but 20,000 is a lot of seats to sell.

Anyway, you got seats. Have a great time.

Awesome!!! Iím in 116 row 10...yes, paid a pretty, pretty, pretty, penny. But Iím psyched!! Derek and Warren playing together - on Allman Brothers material - come on! Worth. Every. Penny.

I have a granddaughter in Brooklyn getting me a ticket. I am getting sticker shock. I want to feel as as if The Allman Brothers Band has been resurrected but it an illusion. This is NOT the Allman Brothers Band. It's The Brothers.

What is wrong with me? I'm willing to pay this kind of money to see Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes basically pretend to be Duane Allman and Dickey Betts with Warren I presume pretending to be Gregg Allman on vocals and Duane Trucks pretending to be Butch. I saw the Mule twice this year and heard Warren Haynes sing Gregg's words on a couple of songs for a lot less money than this.

One original member of the band and a few members of the last lineup playing songs with the exception of Jaimoe and Chuck they didn't write or even record to be on an ABB record. With the exception of Jaimoe and a few songs Chuck played on these people didnt write or record these songs!!!

I love Derek and Warren but damn this feels like a rip off. I'd feel better if much of the money is going to Melinda Trucks.

Yeah it costs a fortune, but it's the 50th. I have to trust Derek's quote saying one last time so this is it. I never thought Derek would do any show like this again.
I've taken my wife to TTB and Mule a few times each and a front row Allman Betts Band, and while it's great, like i've said before it's nothing compared to an Allman concert. This is my once in a lifetime chance to take the wife to see the music I love the most in the world. We missed the Oct 2014 shows because we were new parents with an infant at home. I'm turning 40 this March too so happy birthday to me. I don't have the luxury of waiting for last second deals because airfare and lodging and all that but who cares, IT'S THE BROTHERS BACK TOGETHER AGAIN!!!

Somewhere is an interview clip with Oteil where he says "People pay ridiculous amounts of money to see us because they're counting on a spiritually uplifting experience." What Oteil Said!

I don't think Blackey is" slagging" on the band, at least I am not perceiving his post that way. He is very
passionate about the original lineup and he has the right to his opinion. I read nothing disparaging in it. I have respectfully agreed to disagree with him before. I get where he is coming from on some of his sentiments.

I can't tell people how to spend their money, to each there own as far as feeding the industry. Personally there is NO WAY I would pay these inflated prices. I love the ABB Derek,Warren,Jaimoe,Marc.......but these prices are beyond me.

Is this 50th anniversary "Brother" driven, formulated by the last lineup or did the industry look at this as a opportunity and present it to them?

You run at the mouth (or keyboard) too much.
Nobody in the band is "pretending" to be a departed band member.
Put on the Brothers of the Road VHS and smoke a doob.
If you don't want to spend the $, don't go to the show.
Just STFU about it.

Describing the players as "pretending" to be other musicians is pretty insulting, especially when you're talking about guys who filled these roles in this band for 10 or 20 years and who have always been very vocal about their love and respect for the band's entire history. Everybody here loves the original version of the band and 99% of everybody here thinks it's the best, but it's not a contest with any other lineup.

Who cares? If they didn't think it was right they wouldn't be doing it, and their comments say they think it's a meaningful tribute.
