Allman Brothers Announce New Beacon Theatre Dates

The Allman Brothers Band — honored this past November with Billboard magazine’s “Legends of Live” award — will celebrate their 40th anniversary in 2009 the best way they know how: onstage and on the road. Rock’s definitive live performance act have confirmed they will kick off the year with 10 shows at New York City’s newly renovated Beacon Theatre, where they’ve played 175 times since 1989 and established the most acclaimed and longest-running residency in rock and roll. Ticket information will be announced in mid January.

The group — GREGG ALLMAN (vocals and keyboards), BUTCH TRUCKS (drums and tympani), JAIMOE (drums), WARREN HAYNES (vocals, lead and slide guitar), DEREK TRUCKS (slide and lead guitar), OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (congas and percussion) — will, as usual, welcome many special guest musicians at the Beacon. “I’d love to tell you what we have planned,” ALLMAN recently told Billboard, “but it’s just kick-ass, that’s all I can tell you."
