The group have announced that they will perform eight shows between March 10-19.
The March 12 show will be a special event, marking the 40th anniversary of the recording of the band's pivotal At Fillmore East live album.
Band co-founders Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Johanson announced the group’s return to the Beacon at a press conference held at the venue. Over the last 21 years, the band has made the venue their home-away-from-home, playing nearly 200 shows there in annual, multi-show stands. The Allmans had a one-year diversion from the Beacon back in 1995 when they played Radio City Music Hall instead. Last year, the band were forced to make alternate plans for a New York run at the United Palace Theater when the Beacon became home to the Cirque du Soleil production, Banana Shpeel.
At the time, Gregg Allman commented, “It’s a drag, but one monkey don’t stop no show.”
Tickets for the March shows at the Beacon will go on sale Saturday, December 4th at this location.
