ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND Announce Final Shows
The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND have announced their final plans: they have rescheduled dates for four shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre that were postponed in March: Tuesday, 10/21, Wednesday 10/22, Friday, 10/24 and Saturday, 10/25. Tickets purchased for those sold-out shows (originally set for 3/25, 26, 28 & 29) will be honored on these dates for the corresponding days (see itinerary below). Fans unable to attend the rescheduled shows can return tickets for a refund at the point of purchase prior to August 1.
Immediately following the four make-up dates, the ABB have announced the final shows for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group, which formed in 1969. These final ABB performances will also be at the Beacon Theatre October 27 and 28, a venue the band has played exactly 232 times since their annual tradition began there in 1989. On-sale information for the two newly-added shows will be announced in the near future.
The current lineup of the band--founding members GREGG ALLMAN (vocals and keyboards), BUTCH TRUCKS (drums and tympani) and JAIMOE (drums) plus longtime members WARREN HAYNES (vocals, lead and slide guitar), DEREK TRUCKS (slide and lead guitar), OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (congas and percussion)--is, at 14 years, substantially longer than any other version of the band. The group returned to the stage in April with two shows at their 10th annual Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL, where they played to an enthusiastic sea of fans each night.
The ABB's next concert appearance will be as the closing performer at this year's Mountain Jam this Sunday, June 8 in Hunter, NY. The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND will close the Lockn' Festival in Arrington, VA on Sunday, September 7.
Meanwhile, the band is gearing up for two nights of concerts as part of their very own PEACH FESTIVAL, August 14-17 in Northeast Pennsylvania. In its third year, PEACH FEST 2014 will feature artists including the ABB on two nights, Gov't Mule, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Trey Anastasio Band, Lotus, Big Gigantic, the Taj Mahal Trio, Blackberry Smoke, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, the London Souls and more.
