The collection highlights the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers' first-ever extended run at the venerable New York City venue, an annual residency that has since become a certifiable rock 'n' roll tradition. Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 arrives on February 18 th. Celebrating their 45 th anniversary this year, the band will return to the venue for ten dates beginning March 7. Tickets for the shows go on sale to the public Friday, January 10 at 10:00AM ET and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com and www.beacontheatre.com and via charge by phone at (800)745-3000.
Epic/Legacy Recordings will also release on February 18 Live At Great Woods, a feature-length concert DVD filmed at Massachusetts' Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in September of 1991. Long requested by fans, the upcoming reissue showcases the original long form video version of the concert, previously only available on DVD with band interviews edited into the main feature.
The band's 1989 reunion revivified the Allman Brothers Band, leading to a pair of acclaimed studio albums and a full-fledged return to the road. The addition of percussionist Marc Quinones in 1990 finally brought to life the triple percussion ensemble Duane had envisioned when first uniting the band and by 1992, The Allman Brothers Band were definitely in an unstoppable groove.
The Brothers' 1992 spring itinerary saw the band carry on its special relationship with New York City by settling into the landmark Beacon Theatre for an extended 10-night run.
Specifically selected for coming closest in spirit to Bill Graham's long gone Fillmore East, the beloved Upper West Side venue had previously hosted the ABB during their 1989 reunion tour and felt to the band like a place they could call home.
