Robert Randolph, Steve Earle and Marcus Randolph sat in with the Allman Brothers Band last night at New York’s Beacon Theater. New York-based alternative country singer/songwriter Steve Earle—who has opened for the Allman Brothers Band over the years and shared the stage with Warren Haynes in a variety of settings—emerged near the end of the band’s first set to lead the Allman Brothers Band through his own “Devil’s Right Hand” (a song Johnny Cash also recorded). He remained onstage for the band’s first known cover of Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”
Though the band’s second set was guest free, the musicians did perform “Gambler’s Roll” for the first time this run. The Alllman Brothers Band also offered another take on Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression.” The group returned for a two-song encore with special guests Robert Randolph (pedal steel) and Marcus Randolph (drums). The musicians appeared on this year’s first “What Love Will make You Do” as well as “One Way Out.” Robert Randolph has performed with both the Allman Brothers Band and Gov’t Mule numerous times over the past decade.
The Allman Brothers Band will return to the Beacon this Thursday.
