Live Nation Teases The Allman Brothers Band March 2020 Tribute
Live Nation New York City’s social media feeds continue to tease a tribute to The Allman Brothers Band. The latest post from the concert promotion company notes “The Brothers March 2020” and includes images of a peach and a mushroom, two items associated with the legendary ABB.
The Allman Brothers Band concluded a 45-year career at The Beacon Theatre in New York City on October 28, 2014 — their 238th concert at the venue. March was a sacred time for the group, who held annual residencies at The Beacon nearly every year between 1992 and 2014. Since the finale, founding members Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks have died. Drummer Jaimoe and guitarist Dickey Betts are the only surviving members from the original lineup. Guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones from the final ABB lineup all remain active and have clear schedules in March. Additionally, guitarist Jack Pearson and keyboardist Chuck Leavell are notable Allman Brothers Band alums who still perform live.
One interesting note is that the latest two graphics shared by Live Nation NYC note the number “50.” The Allman Brothers Band’s 50th anniversary was March 26, 2019. Stay tuned for more on this developing story. Check out the teasers shared by Live Nation below:
