The group will perform at Upper Darby, PA’s Tower Theatre on November 26 and 27 as well as Boston’s Orpheum Theatre from November 29 -30 and December 2-3.

I do not know HOW the Orpheum in Boston continues to attract bands. maybe the backstage room is nice but the place is pathetic. They must pay a lot? I SWORE I would never go back there…then Warren haynes, Widespread Panic and now this! If ANYONE has any influence please tell the bands how bad this place sucks. No $ has gone into it in decades and you can NOT fit into the seats, really, not just inconvenient…you can’t fit!!

The ABB are dunzo!! Don’t waste your money folks, merely a shell of what they were even 5 years ago

Hey potsnob, Based on your statement you obviously haven’t seen ABB in real long time. I’ve seen them at least twice (Wanee) for last 4 years or so and you’re way off base. Download amy of those shows from their site and you’ll see.

Sounds like jambandguy needs to shed a few pounds.

Here we go again, it is the same problem I had with the last Allman’s show at the Tower. I got so pumped to go see my favorite band at one of my favorite venues and then when into to buy tickets and practically puked when I saw the prices for orchestra seats. It’s a shame they don’t play arenas anymore and charge a price where most of their fans can afford to go. I am not going to pay 145 for good seats or 60 for the balcony, and it is really depressing not being able to afford to see your favorite band when they come to town.

“How about” letting Greg take his time and get completely healthy after his organ transplant? Don’t you want him around, healthy and happy? I can’t wait to read his autobiography, and to see, hear what’s next on the horizon be it collaboration, solo effort or ABB studio disc. A liver transplant is a complete shock to the system and he’s in his 60’s – and that’s a hard 60. Get the picture. The man loves to play – he’ll make the rounds. All good things in all good time.

ummmmmm….....remember me?

I was going to get tickets through presale and the peach corp, was late with the start of the ticket sales logged in and got 12th row center seats, @ $150/ticket + fees. Sorry not happening the fact that they were still available 5 hrs after start of presale means the pricing is too high. I hope the scalpers take a bath if they buy up the Orch seats 1/2 that price $75 is now the market price.

I too am passing on fix this tour….wanted to see them in Boston coming up, but fix prices at 150$+ is just too much! I saw the band last fall for 2 out of the 3 nights, and paid a bit more than half that for balcony seats…..come on boys, your turning away great fans here!
