i was fortunate to be at the Beacon that week end, that friday nite show still stands out as probably the best set of music i can remember.. Between the quality of music. and the song selection. it was seemless and awesome..I just played the 2nd set , burned from moogis on DVd on my 42' plasma, hooked thru an hi end audio system, swoooo, my 11 yr old daughter came out an air guitared for me jamming and dancing... love great music.. getting antsey for the United, sounds funny.. but its still the boys and still in New Yawk city!! skyscrapers and everything!!

Indeed. That was a great show. The first set was awsome too. When Clapton came out.WOW.....the roof just blew off the place. It was the best night of music that I've ever seen.

I would not frown upon anyone burning a copy of that show from anything they could get their hands on..........I just couldn't be upset for someone trying to get a copy of that.

I agree yankweed. I was not @ the Beacon for that night, I was there 12-13-14th, and I just bought the CD from Hittin the Note from the 20th. (Was watching it on Moogis as it happened) and I was just floored. "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad" is one of my most favorite Clapton tunes ever, and here I was thinking how great it sounded when Derek and Doyle were playing it on that tour, but I was a little unprepared (lol) for just how off the charts it was that second night with the ABB! I just can't imagineit ever sounding better than that. Every musician on that stage was just on fire. Gotta love that..

i still cant believe i was at both of those shows last year. I was in the balcony each night. when the 2nd night came around we knew clapton was gonna be there again. I paid 75.00 or so for those seats, and people wouldve gave me anything i wouldve asked that night for a ticket. what a great couple of nights. But then again ive never seen a bad beacon show yet.

agreed. I wasn't there....but watched on Moogis. I made it down for the Jimmy Herring night. However, I feel like the 20th was even better than the 19th despite it being the second time around. I hear you on the song selection...just awesome. And I agree that they killed it before Clapton came out as well......great set-list for the whole show. I've only been able to buy two beacon 40th shows from Hittin' the web thus far and that was night was first on my list. The other was the Boz Scaggs night. I loved that set as well.....for a very different sound.

I was not at that show but watched it on Moogis and thought it was the overall best show from that unbelievable run. Clapton and the boys were much more at ease the second night IMO.

i remember Butch saying something about the shows being secure and not being able to be replicated...until the first weekend and someone walked up to me and gave me a DVD of the previous nights show

I could not agree more. Also the night of the 26th (actual 40th anniv, show)

Last year is going to be a tough act to follow themselves

ps why would butch be upset if u pay for moogis it is a feed.. you download it in your hard drive and make a copy to play in your dvd with big screen and audio system, not all computers easily hook up to tvs, why would you be limited to watching great shows on a small screen with limited audio playback??

I was lucky enough to see 3/19. It being the first of Clapton nights, I will say that the electricity in the air both inside and outside the Beacon was amazing. I recall saying "Can you believe a band and a guest that have been playing this long could generate this much excitement."

After the first song w/Eric, the crowd roared like I've never heard the Beacon. While 3/20 offers possibly a slightly better setlist with Clapton, I'm not sure how it could top the 3/19 atmosphere. And the first set and first couple tunes of the 2nd set before EC came on stage were super tight and dialed in perfectly soundwise.

I only got to see 3/20 on Moogis and it will be the show of the two I'll be ordering as an Instant Live, but I wouldn't trade my 3/19/09 experience.

Agree. I was lucky enough that those were my 2 shows last year (Actually just lucky on clapton; I figured 3/26 would be special)

Still, the show I really regretted not being at was 3/14. The seemingly peyote induced jazz fusion jam from another world. Not consistently a strong show, but Derek, Brecker, Oteil and Stanley Clarke were in a universe somewhere that I've (thankfully) never visited.

This was my show last year and it was sublime. Then EC walked on stage and it was just over the top good. When they went into Little Wing I thought I would cry tears ... too beautiful.

I went to the 3/21 show last year and watched all the other shows on Moogis. I remember the 3/19 show being very strong before Clapton came out. Warren was on fire. The anticipation of EC coming out fueled the whole band. I remember the Whiipping Post to end the 1st set was off the charts. Also Warren smoked the Good Morning Little School Girl which was the song before Eric came out. Here is a video of Why Does Love Have To Be So Bad from 3/20. Eric was shaking his head and smiling during Warrens solo.

I watched both and thought they were both great but I just felt like the band members may have had a slight bit of jitters the first night and played more tight and confident on night two. That is just my opinion of course.

I agree with you about the suspense the first night as I could feel it right through the TV!

The problem is that people walk up and hand dutchoneill a copy the next day.

Personally it doesn't bother me but I guarentee that was not Butch's intention nor the ABBs for people to burn copies for a number of reasons. Otherwise he would have sold it as a download and not something offered for a limited time. Also the ABB would have wanted a slice of the sales for that also besides whatever deal they have.

Suprised we never saw some sort of DVD release. Maybe one day we will.

I know I am knit picking (I sure would have loved to have been there) but on tape I keep thinking that this was not Warren's best night. Pretty by the numbers for all the songs with Clapton. Always wondered if he was out late the night before when I hear this show. Still a treat to hear. (obviously)

I went to one Beacon show a year for many years through obviously last year. The one show I went to last year was the Clapton show on the 20th and I put it as one of my favorite shows last year (I attended about 45 shows).

The Allman Brothers are not my favorite band by a long shot but I have always enjoyed them live and find their playing to be very unique. When I saw the move to the United Palace (which is a theatre I enjoy going to) and the prices I said I am not going to go. Just can't justify paying that type of money anymore. I will make exceptions (paying 77 bucks to see Clapton with Beck in the nose bleeds) but for the Brothers I realized that I am not going to top the experience with Clapton. Just not going to happen as the show was that good.

I also think I am one of many who are passing on the United Palace shows and I think the band needs to take a hard look at where they are going. Their fans are getting older, money is scarcer, and I think people are getting pissed off.

Agreed. I was there and watched it all and it was the best.
