Buddy Guy, Dave Mason and JoJo Hermann Sit in with the ABB, Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes and and Derek Trucks Join Panic
The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic’s joint tour moved into the Midwest for a performance at Chicago’s Charter One Pavilion. For the first time this run, Gregg Allman emerged during Panic’s set to play organ on “Just Like A Woman.” He remained onstage as Warren Haynes picked up his guitar to help Widespread through its first take on “Turn On Your Lovelight” since 1997. In addition, Derek Trucks sat in with the band for “Ride Me High,” “Papa’s Home,” “Climb To Safety,” “Papa’s Home” and a show-closing version of “North” that also featured Haynes.
The members of Allman Brothers also welcomed a series of guests during their set. Partway through the performance, Traffic/ Delaney & Bonnie guitarist Dave Mason took the stage for “Only You Know and I Know,” a song he has been associated with for some time. Soon after, Widespread Panic keyboardist JoJo Hermann joined Mason and the Allmans for “Feelin’ Alright.” Later in the night, Buddy Guy also took the stage for “Sky Is Crying” and “You Don’t Love Me.” Later in the night, Larry McCray, Haynes, Trucks and Oteil Burbridge also all reportedly took the stage at Guy’s Legend’s Bar.
