Tommy Talton Sits in with The Allman Brothers Band
The Allman Brothers Band kicked off a two-night run in Illinois at Chicago Theatre last night. The shows are part of a short tour that opened at Scranton, PA’s The Peach Music Festival on Friday night.
The evening contained a few surprises. At the end of the band’s first set, Cowboy guitarist Tommy Talton emerged for a take on “Statesboro Blues.” Later in the night, The Allman Brothers Band introduced a cover of Wilson Pickett’s “I Found a Love.” They also showed off a few of the new songs they debuted at New York’s Beacon Theatre evening this year, including a cover of The Beatles’ “Rain” and the Warren Haynes/Phil Lesh original “Spots of Time.”
The Allman Brothers Band will return to the Chicago Theatre this evening.
