The Allman Brothers Brand Confirm Beacon Run 2015

New York’s historic Beacon Theatre will not go dark next March as a special run of performances is set to take place. The Allman Brothers Brand is expected to sell out the venue for 12 nights, featuring the ephemera, detritus and dross of 45 years with the ABB as well as a merch booth, photo exhibit and drink station. The signature sit-ins will be kept alive as well, as the Allman Brothers Brand will be joined by a My Morning Jacket Jacket, a White Denim Skirt, a Jimmy Herringbone Suit and quite possibly a passel of Yonrico Scott Tissues.

A series of after-shows are set to take place at B.B. King’s, kicking off on March 7 when One Way Out: The Inside History of The Allman Brothers Band author Alan Paul will consume alarming quantities of absinthe and then conduct an interview with the group’s mushroom logo.

April Fools aside, the original Brothers continuing on with a new lineup after 2014 is not as far fetched as some seem to think. There is a lot of dough still on the table for this band along with timeless music.

Dickey Betts will be in the lobby signing copies of his new book “Dickey Do, Dickey Don’t” filled with all the real dirt. Cher will be introduced as a new member of the band with a killer medley of of her hits. Chuck Berry and BB King will be also be introduced as Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes replacements for The Beacon run only. The band will kick into a surprise version of “Wipe Out” in the middle of “Whipping Post”. Butch Trucks will indicate he is to old to be called Butch and wants to be known as Claude. Gregg will demonstrate that he can stand on his own two legs and sing “Melissa” and remember all the words.
