I was very lucky to buy tickets for the Clapton shows last year during the pre-sale and I was wondering who everyone thought might be the guests this year. I checked the BB King Blues Club page and I noticed that the Robert Cray Band will be there the weekend of the 18th-20th so it is a definite possibility that he will join the Brothers at least for a New York minute. Who do y'all think will be joining them this year? I can't wait for the ABB in NYC!!!!!

Who do you think will be guests at the United?

Most of the "Guests"...provide nothing more than noise for me. If I were coming to New York, I think I would be content to just hear the Brothers in their element, playing their music for fans that have paid premium $$ to hear the Allman Brothers Band. Don't get me wrong, about 10% of the guests are an excellent fit, Clapton & Leavell to name two. Save us the John Poppers, Kid rocks, Bruce Willis' etc. Had I been at the Johnny Winter or Kid Rock shows, I might have booed. I think it's great that Warren makes friends in the industry so easily, but spare us. Please. Perhaps some of the people would be better suited for guest appearances at a Gov't Mule show. But please, let's keep the Bros. shows traditional, look at all of the blues driven musicians out there that can really play and would absolutely compliment the tunes.

The guests are G-R-E-A-T!
I save my $ to see the shows just at the Beacon/Palace.
Each show has a differant feel, flavor, and surprise!

I'm hoping Steve Winwood shows up this year. He's due.

Well, we did once get Bernie Williams!
Maybe Manny can play percussion?

No guests this year-it's too far uptown.

It is time for Frampton and Leslie West to return. They are very good fits. Would also like to see Bonnie Raitt.

I'd love to see and hear the band give Bonnie the opening licks on "Statesboro Blues"


Frampton could play the lead on "Melissa" acoustic... Just Gregg and Peter.

Leslie could watch it all from the 3rd row....

West was my favorite guest from my 4 shows in '07, and I really wanted it to be Johnny Winter. I did not even know who it was at the time. I was thinking it was Jerry Springer!

Seeing West, Bruce (Jr) & Laing in 3 weeks. (Edgar Winter opening) I'll let you know how it is. Hoping they do some Mountain.

And speaking of Mountain, Felix P."s wife would never have gotten awaying with offing him if she wasn't such a looker.

How about one more that just might fit.....Sonny Landreth on "Done Some Body wrong"...?

That would be cool

I'm w V, most of the guests detract from the show, and with a limited schedule in 2010 I'd prefer just the Brothers.

But, the thread asks for predictions, so I'll state the obvious, Susan Tedeschi will do Dont Think Twice it's Alright.

And I'll go first, maybe Dickey will be back?!?!?

I thought Sonny struggled with the bad last year. I was really excited to see him. But it seemed like the sound man had his amp volume in the PA way down - or the Dumble just didn't have enough cut for the large band - could barely hear him on most songs. He also didn't quite get the improvs when they went around in a circle each doing a bar or two - Derek was visibly flustered.

To fit in with the vibe up in the Heights, I think a member or two from Los Lonely Boys would be an interesting choice. If we forgive their backing out as the Brothers opening act a number of years ago, if my memory serves me right.

Be safe.

I was at the Bernie Williams show and it was awful. First, the crowd was the most energetic and excited, for the entire night, when he was on stage and he just barely held his own with the band. Who did we come to see? Bernie Williams or the Allman Brothers?
Peter Frampton was an amazing guest and easily one of my favorites. I would have cringed to be at the Bruce Willis show. Susan Tedeschi is always an amazing guest. I agree that Sonny Landreth seemed to struggle at last years show. Not sure what it was but something was off. Former members like Chuck Leavell and Jack Pearson are also always great.

Guests can be the perfect counterpoint to what might otherwise be considered over-reliance on a small amount of material. I would rather not pay for expensive concert tickets to my favorite band to see a retired baseball player demonstrate his blues chops or actor-turned musician have his go. This band has 2 of the best blues-rock guitarists of this era and the 7 members can and should continue to push themselves further. They should not rely on trotting out warm bodies to fill the time. Granted multi-night runs in one location require a bit of time stretching. But certain artists will always add the unknown element and energy to make a show that much more special. Let's just hope they're a little more selective this year.

Interesting. Thanks for that insight.....Not defending Sonny here just presenting a view in support of your theory about Landreth's "Dumble". As a guitar player too I gotta say that not very much is more frustrating than not being able to hear anything you play while on stage...That's too bad about his performance, didn't hear that one.

Honeyboy Edwards is playing BB King's on 3/11. Perhaps he will grace the stage with the Brothers that weekend. Sam Bush also plays BB's right before Honeyboy. I love the ABB in NYC!!!!

I have seen the Jukes Horns a couple of times and would like to se them again. They add a nice flavor in general and especially to the Last Waltz covers.

Yeah - he's gotta be there. He's got a 3-day break from his hectic schedule during the middle of the ABB run, so I would assume he would stop by. Seems a little too coincidental

There are YouTube vids with him jamming with the Derek Trucks Band and also Mule, so it only seems natural. Plus his family is upstate. Even a guitar god like Joe's gotta see his folks

doubtful you'll see Chuck Leavell there since he'll be down at Wanee this year. I would think you'll see Trey Anastasio come out. He lives in NYC and his band nor Phish is touring then.

Pumped that I'm making 2 nights of the Palace and Wanee! Gonna be a mighty fine Spring!
