Last year marked the 50th anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band. And on March 10, Madison Square Garden in New York will present a concert, “Celebrating 50 Years of the Music of the Allman Brothers Band,” that will feature original member Jaimoe as well as five members of later ABB lineups (Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Chuck Leavell, Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quiñones) plus drummer Duane Trucks (nephew of the late Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks and a current member of Widespread Panic) and keyboardist Reese Wynans (of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble Band).
Tickets go on sale Jan. 10, with pre-sales beginning Jan. 7. Visit ticketmaster.com.
A press release describes the show as a “one-time concert event.”
“From the Fillmore East to the Beacon, NYC has always been a spiritual home for the Allman Brothers,” said Derek Trucks in a press release. “So it only feels natural to honor uncle Butch, Gregg, Berry, Duane and all the other brothers and sisters we have lost along the way here at MSG. I’m excited to get to play these songs with Jaimoe and the Brothers one last time to celebrate 50 years of this music.”
Warren Haynes also said in the press release: “Hard to believe it’s been five years since our final show at the Beacon. We had all talked about doing a final show at Madison Square Garden which never came to fruition. What a great way to honor 50 years of music and fulfill that wish at the same time.”
