After closing out a run of dates with Santana, The Allman Brothers Band teamed up with moe. for a one-off show in the group’s hometown of Atlanta, GA. moe. opened the show at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre, performing a set of fan favorites that included a guest appearance by Allman’s guitarist Warren Haynes during “Opium.”

During the Allman’s set, Ike Stubblefield joined the group on keys for “That’s What Love Will Make You Do,” while Stax recording legend William Bell joined in on “Born Under a Bad Sign.” Later in the set, moe. guitarist Al Schnier joined the group for a tribute to what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 70th birthday, with a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Franklin’s Tower.”

The Allman Brothers Band performs next at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte, NC.

Here’s a look at the setlists from last night as they appear in our Box Scores section.

Atlanta is not the ABB “hometown” by any stretch. If you can’t even get that simple fact correct maybe you shouldn’t be reporting on it.

Allmans have a lot of history in Atlanta, that’s all that means…it’s not literal

You know, every time I read comments on this site ripping a news item for getting a few fact wrong it makes me wonder about the mental well being of people who would get so angry over, say, leaving out the name of one of 5 drummers who sat in the Allman Brothers last night. Do yourself a favor and go out for a nice dinner or something. These are updates on bands and are meant to be fun. It’s the Wall Street Journal’s expose on the current state of the financial crises. Lighten up.

I’m with JukBox. I’d rather this type of reporting exist at all than not exist for accuracy sake. I like to read about who jams with who and I like to read about about bands I like in one place instead of combing the internet for pieces of information. I mean if they didn’t do it, who would?.

Man, anyone wanna talk about the show?? It was awesome. Nobody does it like these guys do, and I don’t give a damn if Gregg and Jaimoe are old and have to pace themselves. It’s rock ‘n roll, for God’s sake. If they didn’t care, that would be one thing, but they’re still pushing it. You’re smart AND lucky to still see these legends.

Just in case anybody wanted to know who the black guitarist was that sat in on “franklin,s tower” it was 71 year old Carlton (Frog) McWilliams former Fats Domino guitarist and 2009 inductee to the Kansas Music Hall of Fame.
