ABB Back At Beacon

The Allman Brothers Band hits the big 4-0 this year and the Southern rockers kick off the party by returning to NYC’s newly renovated Beacon Theatre for a 10-gig marathon starting March 9.

The group – Gregg Allman, Butch and Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Jaimoe, Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones – canceled its usual Beacon Theatre residency last year when Allman took some time off to focus on his treatment for Hepatitis C.

ABB has turned its Beacon residency into the longest-running such series in rock history, playing the venue 175 times since 1989.

Ticket info isn’t available yet for the March 9-21 shows, but an onsale date as well as guest artists are expected to be announced shortly.
