Allman Brothers Band to Release 40th Anniversary DVD

The Allman Brothers Band will release a DVD pulled from their March 26, 2009 show at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The show, which commemorated the band’s 40th anniversary, featured no guests (the entire run included 60+ guests), highlighting the original lineup on the very day they formed in 1969.

That night, the band performed their first two albums including their self-titled debut and Idlewild South in their entirety, back to back. The DVD, 40, will be released April 30 via the band and EOne Entertainment.

Currently the band is preparing for their headlining shows at Wanee Music Festival at Live Oak, FL on April 11. The Brothers will also perform at Mountain Jam, Peach Festival and the Lockn’ Festival in Arrington, VA.

Sweet! Their 2003 DVD from the Beacon f-ing rocks. Can’t wait to see and hear this one!

I don’t know the reason, but why would they release this show when they had Clapton, the dead guys, sheryl crow etc on that run?

Wow what a show! I was there and also have the instant live recoding. A great way to pay respect to the original ABB line up.

Exactly. I imagine they’d have to pay the guests if they were to appear on the DVD. However, I’d actually be inclined to buy it for the Clapton segments. So they might actually sell more if they were to include the guests…

Had been waiting for this release and to see something different with some of the guests. Instead yet another show of the same old songs.
