Thread: October 28 2014 - the last show

Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 12:35 AM

The Beacon is buzzing, the web server is groaning from the load, and my cell phone battery is 48%

Hold on, strap yourself in, Lana is hyperventilating, and we are filled with mixed emotions as we contemplate the final ABB show

Just heard a couple hits on the bass drum,..


johnlgarth - 10/29/2014 at 12:50 AM

Rowland: I just want to thank you and Lana for all you have done for all of us over the years. It has been an amazing ride and I am thankful that I got to share so many shows with my family and friends. The Road Does indeed Go on Forever because of the friendships we have forged over all these years. Enjoy tonight sir. Thanks again, Johnny Garth


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 01:01 AM

Thanks Johnny!

The lights go down, the curtain goes up.
It's electric in here

Little Martha!

With photos of Duane on the big screen
Into Mountain Jam at the coda
Then into Don't Want You No More!

Unbelievable!


sevan378 - 10/29/2014 at 01:07 AM

If any two people should be at the final show, it's Rowland and Lana. So glad you are there - hugs to you both.


BlueSky4ever - 10/29/2014 at 01:07 AM

let's go


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 01:07 AM

It's Not My Cross to Bear
Gregg sounding incredible

Oteil with a huge smile at the audience reaction to Gregg's first words

Duane's Goldtop comes out and Derek puts it on

Into one way out without stopping !!


Slammer - 10/29/2014 at 01:19 AM

Thanks for the updates, Rowland

the server must be bustin' at the seams, taking forever to load pages
But Ayla & I are here for the show



josh - 10/29/2014 at 01:27 AM

What an opening to a show…this is going to be EPIC!!!

Thank you Rowland and Lana! Rowland I've had the opportunity to shake your hand a time or two but I've had the pleasure to spend a few shows/pre-shows with the beautiful Lana…thank you both for the space you've filled with your love and positive energy!

Can't wait to hear this one!!!


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 01:33 AM

Who is now singing along with the chorus


Brosicle - 10/29/2014 at 01:46 AM

Rowland, come up to Loge A 101 and i'll hook you up with my recharger. What phone do you have?


axeman - 10/29/2014 at 01:48 AM

From the looks of things, sounds like a perfect night.


fanfrom-71 - 10/29/2014 at 01:59 AM

Thanks for the updates, Rowland.
I was kind of wondering though...how the heck does someone really take in a show...and hang out on a web site at the same time?
I'm old...

PERFECT opening setlist!


Slammer - 10/29/2014 at 02:16 AM

Sounds like one for the ages so far, there's still a lot to plow through though

Oh, and the server must have cooled down, it's full speed ahead




mikesolo - 10/29/2014 at 02:18 AM

Solid but slightly subdued relative to last nights scorcher. I get the sense they are doing the slow build for a rip-roaring 2nd set, but time will tell. So happy to be in the house and enjoying every minute, sight, sound and smell :-)


Slammer - 10/29/2014 at 02:19 AM

Are they at set break?


stormyrider - 10/29/2014 at 02:21 AM

Thanks for the updates

Thanks for the updates, from the other coast!


peachheadcpl - 10/29/2014 at 02:28 AM

Wanted to join the chorus of thanks to you and Lana, Rowland. You are doing, and have done, a wonderful thing here and touched many lives in the process. So glad to have been a part of it and the wonderful music that is The Allman Brothers Band! Y'all enjoy!


LowLiver - 10/29/2014 at 02:37 AM

I waited on line at the box office for 5 hours and scored one of the last tickets they released at around 8:50. 15th row Orchestra Center. The show has been phenomenal so far and I met some of the coolest people tonight waiting on line. More later. On with the show. This has been an amazing run of shows for me.


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 02:43 AM

You gotta love technology - I just resized the web server from my cell phone at the show!
Twice the power so hopefully enough juice

And speaking of juice, huge thanks to Brosicle for a cell charge battery

Amazing first set!


TheGuru - 10/29/2014 at 02:46 AM

Rowland,

Thank you to you and Lana for all these years. Enjoy the rest of the last "Evening With."


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 02:47 AM

Wake up mama time for some Statesboro Blues!!


Rowland - 10/29/2014 at 02:57 AM

Ain't Wasting Time No More

Thats for sure!


Slammer - 10/29/2014 at 02:57 AM

I was thinking Melissa or please call home or some other slow ballad to open set 2


darencole - 10/29/2014 at 03:00 AM

Hoping for a 'Come and Go Blues' and 'Dreams' before they get to the extended tunes.

Hey Deb!

Hey Rowland!

I waited out front tonight and was about 5 people away when they ran out of tickets. The scene was a fitting end for me though, making friends on the line and laughing with strangers who had come from all over to try and be part of history.

Here's to the Allman Brothers Band!

Rowland I want to join the choir singing your praises, and Lana's. I stumbled into this community at a low point in my life and this site,along with the music, kept me going through some very hard times for a couple years. THANK YOU sir, for building this!

It's not much, but the 60 or so seconds Alan Paul posted of Derek's Dreams peak is a pretty good omen that tonight they left it all on the stage.

Sounds like a great set so far.


BillyBlastoff - 10/29/2014 at 06:25 AM

I'm sitting in Penn Station spent, scorched, and shattered.

I am so glad I made it.

Tonight's show gave me far more closure than I imagined.

To those who I met tonight... It was an honor to share in this night with so many wonderful souls. You are all part of the serenade. Keep sharing the song.

Wow.

Epic is an overused word.

This was epic.

So Glad You Made It BB!

Haha - Makes me happy to know that someone as appreciative as you made it.

Cheers and good travels.

A DAMNED PLEASURE, SIR!

I am speechless. It hasn't really set in what I just witnessed. I was at Saturday's show, and it was phenomenal. Tonight's show was on such another level, it's almost unfair. I can't believe I was witness to it. I heard all of the rumors of playing well into 10.29 and 3 sets, etc, but tonight's show was epic and then some. I went to 3 shows during the 2009 run, been to plenty of other great shows, and none of it compares to tonight. Nothing I have ever seen compares to tonight - no hyperbole. I hope everyone gets a chance to hear tonight's show, start to finish, because it really was one for the ages. This isn't a sentimental band, they just played everything, like it was their last show...

(and for all of my friends who couldn't get in, I nearly smacked the guy in front of me in the back of the head for falling asleep half way through - although most of the crowd was on their feet, start to finish)


aiko - 10/29/2014 at 06:47 AM

what a ferocious show. so blessed to have been able to make it.


axeman - 10/29/2014 at 06:50 AM

Brosicle - 10/29/2014 at 07:10 AM

They left everything on the field tonight
Well worth the 6-1/2 hour wait on the same day line to get in
Thank you to all that were in attendance tonight, for providing the energy that ABB needed to deliver their goodbye sets.
And so now it is enscribed in the annuls, and returns to the light from which it came

Big thanks Lana and Roland for keeping the committee going. It was a pleasure to meet you both.

Goodnight all.


pupigoal - 10/29/2014 at 08:30 AM

What an epic show...three sets ending on 10/29 celebrating brother Duane.
Thanks to the band for 45 fantastic years, thanks to Lana and Rowland for the great work. The Road Goes On Forever with Gov't Mule, G.Allman Band, Tedeschi-Trucks Band and perhaps some one off reunions in the future.
With love from Italy

homeboy - 10/29/2014 at 08:53 AM

I couldn't be there, but this play by play thread gave me a real good taste.
Thanks for that Rowland and Lana, and thanks for making HTW ABB a great place to be for all these years


jszfunk - 10/29/2014 at 10:26 AM

After"Trouble No More" when they left the stage, any particular reaction from the band members or anyone speak?


peach-head - 10/29/2014 at 10:48 AM

I'm sat here in the works canteen reading all the pages on this thread with a tear in my eye. Sounds like an incredible unforgettable magical moment in the life of the ALLMAN BROTHER'S BAND. Thanks brother Duane for believing you could get your vision onto vinyl. Thanks for to all previous members and line ups. Don't know how I am going to get through the rest of my shift.


DougMacKenzie - 10/29/2014 at 10:58 AM

Wow. I'll be 58 years old on November 20, and I have to work to remember the time when this band was not a huge part of my life. Sitting here this morning I am overwhelmed with a sense of joy, of symmetry, of completeness, of gratitude, and I wasn't even at the show. This is the way you do it, this is the way these guys have always done it; step up and deliver, not in a safe neat little package, but all the way over the edge, balls to the wall, leave everything you have out there, hold nothing back. Thanks for everything to the band in all it's incarnations, to Lana and Rowland, and to all the extended family and posters here. Thanks Duane. They did you proud.


mulelouisville - 10/29/2014 at 11:07 AM

As others have said...Epic Show that not only left a mark in history but has now set the bar much higher for those to follow.


BNAKED - 10/29/2014 at 11:56 AM

I read both of Duane guitars were played last night. The
57 goldtop I get but the sunburst is in rock and roll hall, do they take it out,
?


mikesolo - 10/29/2014 at 12:04 PM

I fell Monday's show was one of the best I have ever seen. Last night is a category unto itself and could not have been any better. I am still smiling and will be for a long, long time. Thank you to this band and this community for being such a happy and enjoyable part of my life!


JamesMaffucci - 10/29/2014 at 12:30 PM

Amen......It has been a great run for the fans, for the band for this community. The phrase they went out on top does not do justice to what was witnesses by the audience last night. I was lucky enough to see the 10/21 and 10/27 shows.They were both fantastic in different ways. I felt like I could feel the vibe last night following the show through this vine. This band of brothers does not just play their instruments. they use then as conduits to transmit their hearts and souls through the speakers to the audience. Most of the audience soaks up this gift with the reverence and joy it deserves. It is with joy and passion that we celebrate this music,this extraordinary connection with the band that we love so strongly. The last note at the Beacon has been played. There will be a hole in my calendar and my life come March. Something that I love is no more.....................


kypeachcats - 10/29/2014 at 12:40 PM

I assume we won't hear from anyone who lived through last night for awhile today, but can someone eventually post a full review? So many songs, but was 5 hours right? So I am waiting for the broadcast, but sounds like they played full length versions of everything too? Wow. Omg. ABB.

FattyB - 10/29/2014 at 01:14 PM

It's really not going to hit me until next March rolls around and the Beacon becomes eerily silent.

Thank you Gregg, Warren, Derek, Butch, Jaimoe, Otiel and Marc - and of course Duane, Dickey, Berry and Allen - and Chuck too! What a great 45 years

I am fortunate to live within walking distance from the Beacon and have attended many Allman Brothers shows there (including the 40th anniversary show and a bunch of others in 2009) and this is the best. They really played with an intensity and passion last night and, of course, what a setlist! As others have said - truly epic

https://www.flickr.com/photos/jlbnyc/sets/72157648964532206/


LowLiver - 10/29/2014 at 02:11 PM

What a set list. What a concert. They were ON FIRE last night. With the exception of the Eric Clapton ABB shows I caught during the 40th Anniversary run this was probably the best ABB concert I've ever seen. What a way to end it all. I cannot wait to here the CDs. Waiting on line for tickets built up the anticipation to such a high level. When I finally got waived up to the ticket window just before 9pm I let out a scream that had heads turning and the NYPD scurrying. When they realized it was just me being excited about getting a last minute ticket it was all smiles. There were so many great people I met not just last night but during the whole run of shows. I went Wednesday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday and every night I met people who travelled long distances to experience the ABB one last time. Sometimes those closest to us fail to understand why music is such an important and integral part of our lives. It is awesome to meet and spend time with people who are as passionate about the music as I am. It will be very strange not having the ABB at the Beacon in March. Their extended run at this venue did make it seem like the road goes on forever. Last nights show was a performance they can be proud of. I'm glad to say that one of my favorite bands went out with a BANG and not a whimper.

Wish I had gone. I did go the night before. I take the Raritan Valley Line in for shows. I can imagine the conflict I would of faced at about midnight. Last train out is 1:00am:

* Do I leave the show early?
* Do I mind sitting in Penn Station for four hours waiting for the first train in the morning?
* Or do I cough up $300 for a NYC hotel room

Wonder if anyone there had that dilemma.


merisongbird - 10/29/2014 at 03:29 PM

Thanks to everyone who posted all of that for those of us not there. Much appreciated.

My $0.02 ....

1:30 - 1:45 = Little Martha / slideshow ends, hang out and share experience with those around
1:45 - 2:20 = filter out of the Beacon, continue recollections, etc., start walking down Broadway (it's a beautiful night)
2:20 - 3:30 = get to Cosmos Diner @57th St (or if you prefer 2:45 = get to TickTock Diner @34th St) => eat a nice big breakfast
3:30 - 4:30 = walk around the now desolate Times Square / Herald Square
4:30 - 5:00 = head over to Penn, get tickets for ride home, newspaper
6:00 = 1st train leaves

Seems like an unreal show; if only for its length and inclusiveness - the great playing on top.

A few quick (if harping) points

1 - Wonder if this is what the original last show in March was slated to be like or if the 7 mos of drama led this to greater heights?

2 - Have to think the people who had tickets to the original final show were correct in carping. I felt the same way when I got tickets to Billy Joel's final play at Shea which became "almost final" and missed McCartney

3 - Having had tickets to the original 45th show I feel a little cheated with last Wed's Ok but not great show.

4 - Monday's show was supposedly great; but should the tickets have been the same price as Tues?

Oh well - I've had a 44 year relationship with these guys; no marriage is perfect

So, I assume the last show at the Beacon run in March was not planned to be much more than a "regular" final night at the Beacon. That said, we're lucky we got to see, and the band got to play, their "real" final run at the Beacon - they're unofficial home. Woulda kinda sucked if their final shows ever were at some random music festival or giant arena.

GregB86 - 10/29/2014 at 10:25 PM

I dont know how I survived work today, but somehow I wound up having MORE energy than expected, considering how little sleep I got. The NY Times review of the show broke it down a little too scientifically for me, but they did capture one thing right: it went from a subdued beginning in the first set to a very emotional and high-intensity night. By the time they got to Gregg's closing remarks, and Butch and Jaimoe's brief remarks, I had chills all over. It was such a powerful experience and no, the audience may not be comprised of spring chickens, but people hung in there. HOWEVER, I dont know how people could honestly leave after the second set. There were large swaths of people in the balcony leaving after the second set was over.

I know you guys like to point out the little flubs and goofs, the only one that stands out to me was in One Way Out after one of the extended drum rolls, Derek and Warren werent ready and got caught flat-footed. They seemed to have a good laugh at it.


GregB86 - 10/29/2014 at 10:28 PM

Oh and Gregg giddily running in place right before Statesboro Blues at the start of the second set put a smile on my face. Never saw such an extroverted display of enthusiasm like that before from him.

The thought crossed my mind, but my train pulls out of Penn at 3am. If they had still been playing at 2:15 I might have worried. But there was no dilemma. My decision was made. I would have sat around the sterile train station waiting for the next ride home rather than miss any of the show.


gio - 10/29/2014 at 11:20 PM

Wow. I see no reason to listen to music ever again. Thank you Allman Brothers Band. This is the first time in a while that I don't already have plans for my next show. But I am sure that what you guys laid out on that stage last night will last me a good long time. I'm so grateful for your talent. Peace & Love.

Just some random things to add here. I Little Martha was just a tease right into first part of MJ.

Derek played Soul Serenade in YDLM.

Will the Circle Be Unbroken was full blown with 4 verses, Gregg on the first two and Warren on the final two. Monday it was only an instrumental segment in Les Brers. I am not sure if they have sung all the verses before tonight or if was always just instrumental.

After Liz Reed Gregg said "intermission" kind of mumbling. There was confusion in the crowd. Some people near me in center orch left and did not return, maybe they relocated somewhere else. Some people cheered and clapped like an encore break. Bars were still open, plenty of beers coming in a few minutes after midnight.

Alot of people have said alot of things and I can't add much to it, just a few things here and there. Security was non existent from what I saw. Monday there were occasional ushers checking the orchestra isles. I saw none of that Tuesday. Also, with the show ending at 1:20 something, there must have been only 10 total maybe Beacon staffers in the entire building (most actually looked more like management) that I saw when the lights came on and in the hallway/lobby - sent them all home I guess at some point.

Butch had on a shirt in the first set that said "thanks".

First set I saw alot of smiles on the stage for first few songs from the band. After that they kind of settled into game face mode the rest of the night. The friends and family that I could see in the VIP stage seats, there was alot of emotion and open crying at the end. I got choked up several times on the night with it being the last time I would hear and see so many great songs played by so many great musicians, but also because of what the songs and the time together between the band meant to them. I know none of them, have never met any of them, well I did meet Oteil at a Peach party one time. But it is a connection still, Gregg gave us a heart felt thanks at the end of his words and I felt it from all of them.

"Over the years that we’ve been doing this, the introductions are usually very short, and this one's going to be short, but a little longer than usual. The last two days, we have had the privilege of working with this particular group, and over the past year or so, we’ve had them on both coasts a number of times. In all that time, I've never heard the kind of music that this group plays. And last night, we had the good fortune of having them get on stage about 2:30, 3:00 o'clock, and they walked out of here at 7:00 in the morning. And it’s not just that they played quantity, and for my amateur ears, in all my life, I’ve never heard the kind of music that this group plays: the finest contemporary music. We’re going to round it off with the best of them all, the Allman Brothers."

right. We got our PeachFest tix in February, before the Beacon run. The Brothers were on the bill. There was never an "official" 45th anniversary show. Warren and Derek's announcement was that they were done at the end of 2014, not the end of March. I would have gladly traded places with you on Wednesday, and so would many people here.

anyway, I'm still psyched about what they did last night and I haven't even heard it yet. I'm soaking up everyone's stories, pics, etc and waiting impatiently for the d/l to be available.

Thanks for all the music
Long live the spirit of Duane Allman.

I feel fortunate and blessed to have attended the last show of the ABB's legendary career. It was also my first Beacon show, despite having seen the band about 60 times since my first ABB show in '95. Here are my brief, collected thoughts that I have shared in other forums.

I told Alan Paul after the show that people can stop looking for the "holy grail" night prior to the Filmore East closing show, because this now might be that show. It really was amazing, so fortunate to have been able to see/hear it. Their performance took any of the sadness out of the event for me, because they went out on top, there is nothing left to do. I was kidding with my buddy, Josh, that I went to the show with. "...I think they just ruined me of all future music...they broke music tonight!" It was pure bliss, so proud for them. As Duane said "...jubilation," can't think of a better word than that to describe it. It was inspired and intense from beginning to end. They left nothing on the table. Echoing what Bill Graham said at the Filmore East "...it was not just quantity, but the quality of the music played." It was an amazing show that was a fitting end to the best damn band in the land!

WOW! Other than the drunk chick talking and losing her phone twice and another guy who felt he needed to sing/scream all the lyrics in my ear, it was a fantastic night.

I'm listening to the stream now - although I felt the same way when I saw the setlist - and I think it's really cool that they did some innovative things during the last show. In some ways it's too bad they couldn't have done more of that earlier, but they'd never done a piece of Little Martha into Mountain Jam that way and I don't think they had transitioned from MJ to Don't Want You No More like that either. I said the same kind of thing about the cover of Politician the other night. Obviously the biggest thing is that they played a very long and reportedly excellent show, but that spirit of mixing things up is also great.

Yesterday I had the chance to come home and listen to the show I had DVRd. Odd that after 40 some odd shows, my run would end in a man cave, but oh well. My brother was doing likewise, same as we had been following this thread the night before. His road started much earlier than mine, going back to days in Atlanta in the early 70s before I was born. He said he wished, even more than himself, that a departed friend of ours could be there. After hearing the show, I believe he was. I believe they all were.
first of all, wow.
Part of me wishes there had been a soulshine or a Layla as was originally posted somewhere, but as a tribute to the entire career, I think this was their night, and we got to be witnesses to their vision. this was really fitting, including the nods to Dickie even if he wouldn't participate. Layla would have been interesting, because we all know that unforgettable guitar work is Duane's but of course most people associate the song itself with Clapton. Jam IV from that album would have maybe been better, but where would you put it? same with soulshine... I love it. I bought a boat instead of an engagement ring and christened it and proposed to Jenny aboard the Soulshine... but I just don't know where it would have fit in this setlist. there are obviously other people with other favorites, including some featuring Chuck or Susan. But this was the show for the guys who paved the road, the founding members, and those who have made it stay radiant through the last decades, and the fans who understood the historic context of not just the event but everything that proceeded it, including their own mentors King Curtis, Elmore James, Muddy Waters... the history of American music.
It was more intense from Gregg than anybody could have guessed. The power and emotion of Butch and Jaimoe pounded through the walls of my house, while the intricacies of Marc's rhythms provided sparks incinerated by the constant and cerebral drive of Oteil's baseline....
and then there were those guitars. my god the guitar work. not just played for duane, but with him, on his own instruments. We got to hear Derek emulate more on some tracks than I have ever heard before. In some instances we got his take on Dickie's improvisations, in others, on what in the mid 70s were Dickie's take on what each thought Duane would have done with a song. and we got to hear the prodigy we watched grow up find grooves all to his own as well. We got it all.
We got to hear Warren do what only he does, filling the room and the soul with his vocals, his harmonies with Gregg, and his mastery of anything with 6 strings creating what ultimately is what I think Tom Dowd had in mind in those earliest days in Muscle Shoals, and Jacksonville, and Macon. and we got to hear them do their own thing with a freshness that made 45 years seem like 45 seconds. We got it all, and they went out each in their own way, their one way out. god bless them. He already blessed me with them, and a whole life full of family, and friends, and peaches.
