Hey there sweet family,
We’ve got some great news, and a secret, to share.
First, the great news – we get to announce the special guests who will be appearing at Another One For Woody, November 22, at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC! Yay! So, without further adieu, joining The Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule & The North Mississippi Duo will be … (SFX: drum roll) Audley Freed, Berry Oakley, Jr., Chuck Garvey, Edwin McCain, Gordie Johnson, Hook Herrerra, Jim Loughlin, Kevn Kinney, Rich Robinson, Robert Kearns, Vinny Amico and the ever popular “more”.
There are still a few tickets available for Another One For Woody via http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/0000455BA14E6384?artistid=734412&majorcati
d=10001&minorcatid=1 (sorry for the long url, but y’all know what to do, yes? Copy and Paste! Right!) , but, to no one’s surprise, they’re going fast. Get yours today!
And now, the secret …select ticket holds are being released for many of the dates on the Allman Brothers Band’s current tour which kicks off tonight at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia. If you act quickly, these incredible seats can be yours. To put yourself in one, go to http://www.allmanbrothersband.com and click on the Buy Tix Now! link next to the show you’re interested in. No promises, but some really great tix could appear. It’s no secret that many of these shows Sold Out weeks ago, so if any tickets show up, that will be reason to celebrate! Good luck!
