The Allman Brothers Band have officially confirmed their 2013 residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre. The group—who have performed at the Beacon over 200 times since 1989—will return to the Upper West Side venue on March 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15 and 16. The 10-show run’s dates first leaked in an AmEx pre-sale email last week. There is a possibility The Allmans Brothers Band will add additional Beacon dates if these shows sell out in the coming weeks. As previously reported, Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes performed at the Beacon last night with Gov’t Mule.
The Allman Brothers Band has performed at the Beacon every year since 1994 with a few exceptions. In 1995, the band held their New York run at Radio City Music Hall, and in 2008 their Beacon residency was canceled due to Gregg Allman’s struggle with Hepatitis C. The band also moved their New York run to the United Palace Theater in 2010 after a well-publicized dispute with the Beacon Theatre.
