This was posted on emule today....

My friends from the Wellmont Theatre in Montcalir will be working the Allman Brothers show in NYC. It's going to be at United Palace. Dylan is there 5 nights in December (3 announced so far I believe), and the Allman Brothers at a later date. Hope this helps.

Interesting, they moved way uptown. Looks like a pretty intimate place, I can't tell if it's smaller though.

United Palace capacity: 3,293
Beacon capacity: 2,894

"While the church continues to own the theater, the recently inaugurated rock concerts have been produced by a third party, Andy Feltz, formerly of the Beacon Theatre."

It's not smaller. It might be larger.

The acoustices are great. Saw Neil Young there at the end of 2007.
Seats are old and close together.
Bathroom situation sucks.

I saw BB King was going to play there, so I went to the site to check it out. I thought that would be the perfect replacement for the Beacon. Not familiar with the area, though.

It's no Upper West Side, but should be fine.

It does have the best rotisserie chicken in the world, though.

I'll tell you right now though, assuming this is true, the main gripe for our crew will be the fact that they don't let you bring booze into the seats. You have to buy and consume your drinks out in the halls. The hallways and lobby area are much more spacious and at least as grandiose as the Beacon, but it's still a bit of a pain. It should contribute to a considerably less-drunk crowd, though, which seems like a good thing to me.

i think it is bull **** that you can pay a ton of cash to see a show but can not have a beer while watching the show

Makes sense. It's a beautiful theater, the sound was great, and I think the Beacon crowd will feel at home there. I'll be happy with that if it's the choice. I've posted about this before, but my one complaint was the really poor subway situation. We saw one of Neil Young's shows there two years ago, and after the show let out, the nearest subway station was almost completely closed down, so the station was mobbed with people who were trying to get their MetroCards straight and then get to the train. I hope that's not happening anymore.

Looks like you get a lot of space in the front row.... I can imagine security will be busy...

Reading some reviews, the bad points are:

Distance from downtown
Subway stops at every stop late at night - many complained of 1-1/2 hour rides home
Bathroom is on an upper floor - lower level patrons have to fight the crowd to go up
Many complain of muddy sound - especially under the balcony, which extends way out
$7 small beers in a dixie cup - made worse if you can't take them in
Seats are old and small

Good points had to do with being close to the subway and being a beautiful buiding

If this is true I'm owed a lot of apologies - my prediction months ago. Great roast chicken right across the street; unfortunately some tough bars up that way but this is the best Beacon equivalent around. With the aging prostates of the crow the bathroom lines will be long.

I hope they consider Town Hall. I think it seats about 2200 and it's right on 43rd.
Nice acoustics, pretty theater.

I read that the Cirque de Soleil show that is going to be at the Beacon in March is going to do a preview in Chicago, and there are problems with the show....



From the Chicago Tribune:

"Next comes the Cirque du Soleil's vaudevillian "Banana Shpeel" at the Chicago Theatre. This is another pre-New York tryout -- the show moves from here to the Beacon Theatre in 2010. And if you've been following the news, you'll know that the show has been having a troubled rehearsal period; stars Michael Longoria and Annaleigh Ashford were removed from David Shiner's cast when their characters were written out. So will the Cirque fall flat on its face in its first proscenium-type show? We'll have to see; nobody has seen this show yet nor has a clear sense of what is going on emerged, but those who have bet against Cirque in the past have always lost their shirt. (Tickets, I hear, are moving fairly slowly. So for this show, you could safely wait for the reviews.)"

its a pretty lousy trek to that venue. also the upper west side around the beacon is such a fun area ABB will fill seats anywhere in NYC and we will all still be attending. just be getting an hour less sleep on concert nites

I love Town Hall, I saw DTB there a few years ago and I think a Fiery Furnaces show. It's been a while, I don't remember it being so small - 1495 capacity.

Great news for us NJ folks, though. It's right over the GW Bridge. 'Dollar Vans' run over the span all night long, so park in Fort Lee and jitney over for the show.

Lots of comments about the chicken, and in fact the food in general. You guys are spot on. Malecon fills the street with the smell of ~100 chickens roasting in the front window.

Bars are not hard to find, but a jukebox with LAFE will be next to impossible.

By the way, this is the home of the Reverend Ike. He's preached for longer than most of us have been alive. Lots of energy in this place....

Not happy with that choice but what can you do. I will probably just attend one show and just kick back and watch the rest on Moogis. I'm not a big fan of Town Hall. I thought the sound was very muddy when I saw Hot Tuna there but I wish there were something closer to midtown. United Palace is a hike. Man am I glad that the Mule NYE shows are back at the Beacon. No way I would go to United Palace on NYE.

That A train to uptown does take forever but for an Allman Brothers show it's worth it to me. Yeah, it's a little less attractive of a spot at 100 blocks north of the Beacon (who knew there was even a music venue north of 125 st.? Who knew there was anything up there?) but a small price to pay, beats watching it on a computer monitor in my opinion. I live in Brooklyn, and the Beacon meant 3 trains to the UWS anyways, I'll just have to triple make sure I piss before I head home this time.

Well, it's not so bad on a 34 inch HDTV! The seats are spacious, the food and beer is cheap, there are zero lines for the bathroom, and nobody taps me on the shoulder to say "put that out". If it were closer to midtown I may have attended two or three but will only venture that far once. That is OK though thanks to Moogis which I enjoyed the hell out of last year.

Anyone making plans to do this "on the cheap," count me in as a participant and contributor.


Hell, maybe I'll stay at Pete's. Sounds like he knows how to throw a party.
