A special Allman Family Revival concert was held in Las Vegas last night. The show at The Theater at Virgin Hotels was not only the finale for the 2021 traveling tribute to Gregg Allman, following postponements due to COVID that pushed the trek into 2022, but the concert also was a “goodbye for now” to house band The Allman Betts Band. Additionally, former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach made a few surprise appearances throughout the night.

Devon Allman put together the Allman Family Revival as a one-night tribute to his father six months after Gregg Allman’s death in 2017. The Allman Family Revival expanded in scope and to multiple shows in 2019 and then to a full-fledged national tour with some huge names in 2021. In December, four concerts were rescheduled for February after members of the touring party tested positive for COVID-19.

Last month, The Allman Betts Band made a surprise announcement they would be going on hiatus until the end of 2022, when the Allman Family Revival is expected to return. Led by Devon Allman and Duane Betts, the ABB canceled a busy spring tour but kept both their commitment to the postponed Allman Family Revival concerts and an appearance at this weekend’s Gasparilla Music Festival in Tampa, Florida. As such, Thursday’s show was likely the last full Allman Betts Band performance for the next 10 months.

Former Black Crowes guitarist Marc Ford, sacred steel specialist Robert Randolph, legendary drummer Kenny Aronoff, Wet Willie frontman Jimmy Hall and River Kittens were among the guests who joined The Allman Betts Band last night in Las Vegas. The setlist featured a handful of Allman Betts Band originals, plenty of Allman Brothers Band classics, Wet Willie’s “Keep On Smilin’,” Robert Randolph & The Family Band’s “The March” and “You Got It” by Roy Orbison.

Sebastian Bach sang “One Way Out” to close the second set in Vegas. Bach returned for the “Midnight Rider” finale. Watch The Allman Betts Band’s “Dreams” from last night below
