The Allman Brothers Band

Newsletter June 23, 2005: Front Row Seats

Hey folks,

I know most of you really prefer to sit way back from the stage (OK, weak attempt at humor!), but for the few of you who would like a shot at front row seats, read on!! (And the extra cool part is that rather than benefitting some scalper, you will actually be helping to keep the legacy of the ABB alive for generations to come!)

The Big House Foundation, in conjunction with the Allman Brothers Band, is pleased to announce that a special auction has been set up that will allow you to bid on front-row tickets for most Allman Brothers Band concerts during their 2005 summer tour, the proceeds of which will be used to help establish the Allman Brothers Band Museum in Macon, Georgia. Here’s what you do – look at the tour dates listed below, send your bid for the show (or shows) of your choice to, include all pertinent contact information, and then see if you win! It’s that easy, and your bid is completely tax deductible above the cost of the tickets, as the Big House Foundation is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 public charity. Your donation will go a long way in assisting the BHF achieve its goal – opening and maintaining the Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House, which was the ABB’s home and communal hub in Macon from January, 1970, until early 1973. As a fan of the Allman Brothers, this is the real deal – you can enjoy an ABB show from the vantage point of the front row, and know that you have helped guarantee that the band’s musical road will forever lead back to 2321 Vineville Avenue. To learn more about the Big House Foundation and the Allman Brothers Band Museum, please visit, place your bid, and we’ll be looking for you in the front row!

Take care and know that you are loved (whether you’re in the front row or the last row on the lawn!),
