Gregg Allman: "No One Sitting In" at The Beacon

The Allman Brothers Band will perform without special guests during their final shows, according to band co-founder and lead singer Gregg Allman. In an interview with Relix and Jambands.com earlier today, Allman said, “We held a meeting yesterday and we decided that there’s only six gigs left, and we’re going to play them ourselves. There will be no one sitting in.”

The Allman Brothers Band have performed at New York’s Beacon Theatre well over 200 times since their initial stop at the venue in 1989. The group has hosted extended runs at the intimate theater almost every year since 1992—and those runs have consistently featured special guests with varying ties to the famed jamband icons.

The Allman Brothers Band will kick off a six-show run at the Upper West Side room tomorrow, October 21. The 45-year-old band says that their show at the Beacon on October 28 will be their final concert.

Allman also confirmed that the band reached out to estranged Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts—who parted ways with the band in 2000—to join them during their final run. When asked if the group reached out to Betts about a possible appearance at The Beacon, Allman said, “Dickey is in the middle of a hunting trip. Of course we reached out.”

The Allman Brothers Band stopped by the Beacon Theatre this evening to announce the launch of The Syracuse University Bandier Program Alumni Association’s Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship is named after Gregg Allman and his personal manger Michael Lehman, this year’s recipients of the Bandier Program Industry Leader Award. The first-ever Young Alumni Achievement Award was presented to Drew Taggart ’12, one-half of the EDM group The Chainsmokers.

Allman also told Relix and Jambands.com that he plans to play the Beacon in the future with his solo group, which features Allman Brothers Band percussionist Marc Quiñones.

“I’ve really enjoyed these years at The Beacon, and I fully intend to come back here every year, if I can get in, with my [solo] band to play.”

Allman Brothers Band guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks also annual runs at the Beacon every year with their individual projects. Haynes and Gov’t Mule have hosted New Year’s Eve the Beacon for over a decade, while Trucks recently started a guest-heavy September run at the famed venue with his Tedeschi Trucks Band.

I'm really looking forward to next weekend's Beacon shows! I'm coming in for the Friday show, and my daughter will be joining me for the Saturday show. This will be her first Allman Brothers show. It's going to be a very special weekend, for many reasons.

Hi, just to be clear here, I bought my ticket on box office 500$ the first day. Sadly I'm on the West coast and I can't go, but I think It's fare enought to try to get my money back. And sorry if you think I'm not a "fan", I think I'm a fan to be ready to paid that much money.
Everybody have a great day.

Actually $400/ticket is below scalper prices (for now), but obviously above face.
