The Allman Brothers Band is coming back to New York. The band is returning to the Beacon Theatre for its annual March residency beginning March 1st. The band will hold ten performances at the Beacon Theatre from March 1st – 16th. This year’s annual residency marks its twenty-third year of performing at the famed theatre. The band has sold out its shows some two-hundred and ten times since it started performing at the theatre in 1989. Founding member Gregg Allman discussed the upcoming annual stint. “Yes, it’s that time”, he said. “The Beacon run is always magical. The room sounds great, lots of familiar faces and the band really stretches out. After Macon, New York is really our second home. There’s just something about it, and our fans know it.”
Tickets for the band’s Beacon Theatre performances go on sale beginning next Friday, January 11th at 10am ET. They can be purchased at http://www.ticketmaster.com and http://www.beacontheatre.com. They can also be ordered by phone toll free at 1-800-744-3000. Fans in New York can also purchase them in person at the Beacon Theatre box office beginning next Saturday, January 12th.
Along with its annual stay at the Beacon Theatre, the band has also been invited by fellow music vet Eric Clapton to perform at his annual “Crossroads” benefit show on March 12th and 13th. Those performances will be at New York’s equally famed Madison Square Gardens. The band will also headline a pair of dates at the annual Wanee Festival on April 19th and 20th in Live Oak, FL.
