The August 1971 show is one of the last known performances by the divine slide guitarist, Duane Allman, who was killed in a motorcycle accident just two months later, on 10/29/71.They also plan to release a DVD, entitled Live at Great Woods, which captures the Allmans in 1991. While bassist Oteil Burbridge has left ABB for the Zac Brown Band, Gregg Allman is still incredibly enthusiastic for the upcoming Beacon run. “These last few years, we do the Beacon and then we do one month on the road in the summertime and that’s about it. And then everybody goes off to their own respective solo bands. It’s getting more seldom that we get together, you know? It makes you really look forward to it.”Tickets for the Allman Brothers Beacon shows go on sale at 10 AM (ET) on January 10th. The dates of the concerts are listed below:March 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, 18, 19, 21, 22.-David Melamed (@DMelamz)[Source: Rolling Stone]last_img
