Allman Brothers Band to Return to the Beacon ?

Gregg Allman performed at New York’s Beacon Theater last night as part of T Bone Burnett’s The Speaking Clock Revue. The show marked the Allman Brothers Band leader’s first appearance at the venue since 2009. The Allman Brothers Band moved its annual run of New York shows to the United Palace Theater earlier this year after the Beacon booked Cirque du Soleil’s Banana Shpeel.

Like his performance in Boston Saturday, Allman offered a short set focused on his new studio album, Low Country Blues. He also bantered with an audience member and revealed that the band would return to the Beacon next year. No formal announcement has been made about the band’s Beacon plans.

He sounds great!! Glad to see he’s doing better after the transplant. Can’t wait for ABB in Atlantic City!

The problem with being sick in bed is that you have to hold all in the air above you to use it, lcuinding books. This pad props you at an angle so that you can prop the book on your knee and read comfortably. Quite an enhancement. Two angles, steep and shallow, allow it to work for sitting up and lying propped up, and the cover allows other pillows to be used without simply slipping off.
