I agree with Peteman's assessment of last night almost completely 100 %. The band was GREAT. So great to see and hear them playing again. I loved every moment of last night. I love Taj and think he is a great showman. I loved his take on the old blues tunes. It was nice to hear them done a little differently from the usual take.

Can anyone confirm for me that the instrumental is a new one? I thought it was something I had not heard before, but someone is saying it is called In a Silent Way, and I didn't think it was like the instrumental they opened with last year but I get a little fuzzy on instrumentals.

The Beacon was beautiful last night. It almost hurt to see a few spilled drinks and to see a few people smoking cigarettes. I felt the crowd was good but they were allowed to go into the aisles and that made it hard for me to see so I had to move my 151 dollar seat to a place where I could actually see. If people were kept out of the aisles, then I would not have moved because I had a lovely seat.

Anyway, it was a nice experience mostly last night and it was so good to see every body who I see at the shows again. Feels like Spring/Allman spirit.

Super pics!
Just got back from the city. Whew!
Most has already been divulged. Here's my additions:

-I was able to sit next to two other dudes who were also by themselves and we had a great time together. It totally made the show 10x better.

-Security was present but very loose I thought. The dudes in front of us (Row L Orch) must have blazed up 4 huge joints during the whole show and nobody said anything. Our usher was smiling all night and very helpful.

-The theater looks great. A little over top on the gold statues, but what the hell, it's NYC. Check out the ceiling if you're wondering where $40 million went. Lobby so packed I couldn't tell what had been done to it. Bathrooms downstairs got an upgrade.
-
-The show was amazing as noted. But there were some definite miscues that understandably happen opening night. Some of the early solo runs no one seemed to know who was up next. Derek "frowned" a couple of times when this happened. The rest of the band just shrugged it off.

-That said, this band is a powerhouse now. With Gregg in top form, nothing can stop them. I kind of felt the band saying to themselves, we can't stop this train now, we're too friggin' good.

-Derek has a new swagger that is welcome and overdue. He is not the #2 guy anymore. He's toured with Clapton and been on the cover of Rolling Stone since the last Beacon run and it shows in his presence. The weird thing he did on the Mt Jam solo was jaw dropping. Warren was awesome, but Derek took over from the beginning.

-Oteil was having a blast the whole night. You almost wanted to get a second bass player so Oteil can do more of his crazy **** .

-Oh, Gregg walked into the Beacon around 4pm through the front door of the theater to dumbstruck onlookers. The rest of the band used the side.

-The theater released a bunch of singles around 4pm.

-No early favorite in the new Yogi's competition. Bars over on Amsterdam were packed but not blaring ABB or busty partying bartenders.

Oh what a night. The only bit of trivia I can add to what's already been said is Glenn Close was in the aduience behind us... and by the look of the smile on her face is a huge ABB fan.

I know this is late coming... But I didn't see a response from anyone else:

Butch has confirmed over on Moogis.com that it is the new instrumental that Warren & Derek have written, which is not titled yet.
