Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers Band Return
Last night marked Gregg Allman’s first performance with the Allman Brothers Band since his liver transplant over the summer. The ABB kicked off its November tour with a show at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA just outside Philadelphia. Opening with “Done Somebody Wrong” and then “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’,” the group featured Allman on vocals for much of the night and he was in fine form. Another highlight came with the version of Muddy Waters’ “I Can’t Be Satisfied,” which Allman sang to open set two. The evening also feature a guest player as jazz saxophonist Bill Evans contributed to “Dreams,” “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed” and the “Southbound.” The complete setlist, drawn from our Box Scores page appears below.
Tonight, the Allman Brothers Band will appear in Washington, DC at DAR Constitution Hall.
