Allman Brothers Say Goodbye With Epic Three-Set Beacon Theatre Show
After 45 years, millions of albums sold and countless miles, the Allman Brothers Band played its final show last night, delivering a lengthy triple-set concert that ended after midnight and found the group nodding to their storied history while welcoming the spirit of dearly departed co-founder Duane Allman.
"I think Duane’s presence is part of the moment by moment journey that this band is still on, both musically and from a vision standpoint," guitarist Warren Haynes told the Wall Street Journal before the show. "A lot of times, if there’s a musical question the answer somehow relates to what Duane’s approach would be. Musically, he’s very much with us, and always has been."
"He gave me hell and drove me crazy quite often," added Gregg Allman. "But he lit a fire under me and under all of us."
Jambase notes that the final show was heavy with tradition, from guitarist Derek Trucks periodically performing with Duane's 1957 Goldtop Les Paul to the song choices for the set list, which culminated with an encore-closing rendition of 'Trouble No More' -- the first song ever performed by the original Allmans lineup. The final notes rang out in the early morning hours of Oct. 29, the day Duane passed away in 1971.
As previously reported, the show will be aired several times over the next few days on SiriusXM's Classic Vinyl channel. Take a look at the set list below and see if it isn't worth the price of a subscription.
