We caught this show in 2000. We had front row dead center tickets that were kicked back in the day before the show. It was my friends birthday and it was an amazing show.
Deer Creek July 26th 2000.

This lineup didn't play Atlanta, as the last show with Dickey was a Music Midtown in May. I honestly wasn't in the right head space to appreciate this lineup that Summer, still kind of reeling from the split holding hope on a reunion.
That said, when the recordings started rolling in early that Fall, you could tell the band was super crisp and tight and the jams flowed. I've listened to 9/23, 9/24 and the August gig where Warren & Woody were guests many times. Loan Me A Dime was one of my favorites that I wish they had continued to play when Warren re-joined.
It was also a bit of statement when the Brothers opened with Mountain Jam that summer and made it a feature instrumental on a lot of the tour.

Jaimoe had convinced Gregg that they couldn't vote Dickey out of the band as Butch wanted. Jaimoe said an Allman Brother either dies or quits to get out of the band. So the fax informed Dickey he was laid off for the summer. But when Dickey discovered they were going to do the summer tour without him and play his material, he sued the band charging among other things he was being impersonated by Jimmy Herring. Certain sources revealed what was supposed to have been confidential that Dickey won over a million dollars in arbitration. When this went down Dickey's 3 partners in the band declared Dickey had quit and it became a permanent split. Later Gregg would sometimes say Dickey quit and other times he was fired.
All this made Jimmy very uncomfortable so he quit at the end of the tour though Butch told him he had the gig. But Jimmy said he would not replace a living member of the band.
Gregg later said he called Warren who was a member with Dickey who wouldn't be replacing anyone. And Gregg said if Warren had said no that would be the end of the band as far as he was concerned.
I'm so happy he and Dickey were able to finally put this behind them and have several good conversations before Gregg passed. After several years passed they began to miss each other and realise they were still brothers with the same history and legacy.

That's a really good story Mr. Lackey.

I saw the first or second show that Derrick played from the front row in Virginia Beach. Gregg could not stop smiling looking at Derrick. After the not so good Beacon shows that spring the new lineup was great.
