By overwhelming demand, The Allman Brothers Band have added four more shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre, with 14 total shows now running from March 7 to March 29. These added dates (March 25, 26, 28 & 29) are in addition to the 10 shows previously announced, all of which sold out immediately the day they went on sale to the public.
In addition to their 45th anniversary as a band, 2014 also marks the 25th anniversary of the group's annual run at the Beacon Theatre, a tradition the group started in 1989. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees and live music stalwarts have performed at the 2800-seat Beacon over 220 times since the tradition began. The group's line-up--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)--will perform all 2014 shows together.
In 2014, the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND will also perform at select festival performances including their ownWanee Festival (Live Oak, FL April 11-12) and Peach Festival (Scranton, PA August 16-17) as well as at theLockn' Festival (Arrington, VA September 7).
Also coming up this year are three live concert releases from throughout their storied career. In February, the group's own Allman Brothers Band Recording Company will issue Boston Common 8/17/71, recorded 10 weeks before the death of co-founding guitarist DUANE ALLMAN. It is one of the few Duane Allman-era shows that no fan has heard or owns. In addition, on February 18 Epic/Legacy Recordings will release the two-CD setPlay All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992 and a re-release of a live DVD from 1991, Live At Great Woods.
Tickets for the four added Beacon Theatre shows go on sale to the public Friday, January 31 at 10AM ET
