What was the best live ABB show that you have seen in the last ten years?


I didn't really start seeing live ABB shows until 1999 so my base of shows to draw from is somewhat limited. Honorable mention would be the Peidmont Park show with Dave Matthews and they blew the Dead away at Penn State. The Chicago shows with WSP opening were pretty good too. This show was by far and away the best live performance that I attended, hands down.

8/15/07 Burgettsown, PA. with Ratdog.

thanks to Mr. Weir and a few of his friends, we were somewhat electric that night and maybe that diidn't hurt either

I was at Starlake and it was a great show. I thought the 2 nights with EC at the Beacon in 2009 were the best 2 ABB concerts that I have ever witnessed. Only 60 shows here total but those nights were special!!!

This is an easy one for me, 8-20-06 at Lakewood in Atlanta. Oteil and the Peacemakers and dTb both opened. I was ready to leave after Susan sat in on Anyday w/ dTb, it was that good. But then the ABB came on and about blew my mind.

Notice the date of my registration on this site? I did not buy the IL, and was desperate to find it! Took about 3 mos for HTN to get in in. That was excruciating.

1. Don't Want You No More
2. It's Not My Cross To Bear
3. Midnight Rider
4. Trouble No More
5. The Sky Is Crying
6. Wasted Words
7. Dreams
8. Woman Across The River
9. Old Before My Time
10. Hot 'Lanta
with Vaylor Trucks, guitar
11. Feel So Bad
with Susan Tedeschi, guitar & vocals
12. Statesboro Blues
13. The Weight
14. You Don't Love Me
15. Mountain Jam
with Kofi Burbridge, flute solo
Encore
16. Southbound
with Barry Richman, guitar

I was at that 8/15/07 show! Definitely one of the best ABB shows of 2007, at least.

The best ABB show I saw in the past decade was clearly 10/4/09 Charlotte. It's actually pretty amazing, and I made a whole thread about it once. This show really catches the 40th Anniversary Tour with Panic in full flower, and features the best versions of Revival and Rockin' Horse I've heard from this lineup. Pretty smokin' Les Brers, too.

I've heard every Instant Live the band has put out since 2003, and this leads the pack to me. I'd rather listen to this show than the Clapton Beacon shows or the 2004 Fox shows.

If I had to pick one among the ones I've seen it would be 3/19/09 (Thursday Beacon with Clapton).

Honorable mentions are the 3/25/01 w/Chuck Leavell and 9/25/04 at the Fox (broke out Layla, Blue Sky, Les Bres)

The show that I think is the peak of this band that I didn't see live, but heard on tape is 3/21/05 (Chuck Leavell plays with them for much of the night along with the Juke Horns).

And I talked to you at the HTN tent.

That was BoboFest II.

We didn't have many peeps but we made up for it in quality.

Karen, Shelby, Jim Benjamin, Goliath, John Ott.

Jim, John, Daivid & I got pics after the show with Warren.

The show was great, we skipped 85% of Ratdog to enjoy the good friends in the parking lot.

I found the Fillmore night good - not off the chart. (while that was a great Liz Reed they tpped it with Jon Scofield a few days later). The second Clapton night was great, but six days later of 3/26/09 the boys put the pedal to the metal for two straight sets (they did fumble the encore) i have never heard them so intense from start to finish

I just went back & looked at the setlist for 3/21/05 again. Woa. I wasn't at this one but have heard a great audience recording; it's off the charts:

1. You Don't Love Me
2. Statesboro Blues
3. Midnight Rider
4. The Same Thing
5. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
6. Egypt
7. Into The Mystic
8. Come and Go Blues
9. All Night Train
10. Blue Sky


11. Little Martha (Derek & Warren acoustic)
12. Les Brers In A Minor
13. Good Clean Fun
14. Dreams To Remember
15. Can't Lose What You Never Had (Jimmy Cobb drums)
16. Desdemona (Jimmy Cobb drums)
17. Jessica
Encore
18. Southbound
19. Layla

Chuck Leavell played on 7 songs I believe. Jimmy Cobb on the 2 noted. Matt Abts & Page McConnel sat in on one (Southbound I believe).

The Juke Horns were on 4 tunes. Chuck twinkling the keys on Jessica, Layla and Blue Sky with the boys...is just phenomenal. I think this was the last Blue Sky played by the current ABB.

I too was there, and I remember seeing you there, Rob : ). It was a great one for sure, but my choice is 3-18-06, probably the best show of all the 75+ shows I've seen over 32 years. Here's the setlist, but it really doesn't do this show justice - they did the EXTENDED version of Whippin' Post, ala AFE, with Warren doing the long, mournful coda at the end. Only time I've ever seen them do this, and it's the closest to the AFE version I've heard post-Fillmore East. I know PhotoRon agrees with me on this, as do many others. And check out the last 4 four songs of the show:

Saturday, March 18, 2006

Venue: Beacon Theatre

Setlist

1. Don't Want You No More >
2. It's Not My Cross To Bear
3. Can't Lose What You Never Had
4. Who's Been Talking
5. Come and Go Blues
6. Shake For Me
7. Desdemona
8. Hot 'Lanta
9. The Weight

Set II
10. Preachin' Blues Derek & Warren only
11. Who to Believe
12. The Same Thing with Brian Stoltz, guitar
13. Melissa
14. Dreams
15. Mountain Jam

Encore
16. Whipping Post

A close second would be 6-20-02, at the Chicago Theater. I've heard this described as THE BEST Mountain Jam post-Fillmore. No argument from me. By far the best version I've heard, with Derek literally taking me on an out-of-body experience.

Honorable Mention: 5-11-96, Riviera Theater, Chicago. Best of the Dickey era. 18 or 19 minute version of Dreams, first time I heard the Franklin's Intro to Blue Sky, and a monster True Gravity with 3rd Stone tease. This was the first time I saw the ABB up close in a theater setting, and it was in my home town (even though I moved to Milwaukee a month before) and I had tears in eyes I was so happy. And then I also had tears in my eyes when I discovered my car had been broken into by a$$holes who parked next to me and stole over $100, a jacket and about 25 boots. Welcome back to Chicago....*laugh*

and Honorable Honorable Mention: All three Warfield shows in SF in '02. Great shows in the venue with coolest vibe in the coolest town I've ever seen an ABB show. An unforgettable experience.

I was at this one too. Bird72 flew out for the show and I picked him up at his hotel. He had just started chemo and was pretty weak, but the guy has the heart of a LION and gutted it out all the way through the show. I'm glad he got a good one. that Spoonful excerpt was an alltimer.

I missed 9-24-05 (plane got in too late - walked over to the Fox right when the show was letting out) but I thought Saturday, 9-25 was one of the best I've ever seen. That whole weekend in ATL and seeing the Fox for the first time was unforgettable.

I was thinking that the one Beacon weekend I've attended we got THE show of the run on 3/18/06.

If it hadn't been for Bobo, I would have never been to the Beacon.

After that epic show, we headed over to BB King's for that Lefty fellow.

Good times!









And one of my all-time favorite pictures:

Thanks Rich, but we met the year before in Pixberg at BoboFest.

ABB on Saturday night, Dickey & Great Southern at the Pixberg BluesFest on Sunday.

Matt led us to W. Virginia after the ABB show.


Heh heh.

Duh. Of course, you are correct. I should have said hanging with you at BB's after, as you say, that EPIC show.

yup, I was in Matt's car during that "detour" to another state (WV) on the way back to the Holiday Inn in Pittsburgh....LMFAO

Now that I think about it, brofan, I saw you and bird72 at the Waffle House after that show in Charlotte in 2005 This thread is inevitably bringing up good memories of hanging with the good folks from this website at the shows in question.

I always mention 10/4/09 is because it holds up so well on CD. It's always easy to get lost in the "afterglow" of a show where you had a good time. I certainly had fun at those Charlotte shows, but it was repeated listening to 10/4/09 after the fact that really made me look at that in a different light. That whole run with Panic was good, the 10/6/09 show at Merriweather Pavilion and the Birmingham shows from 10/9/09 and 10/10/09 are also keepers.

The ABB has played some pretty good shows in the past decade, haven't they?

I was at BJCC 10-09-09 and 10-10-09, Friday and Saturday....great shows.
Was also at Chastain Park 10-10-08 and 10-11-08, (Fri and Sat both An evening with shows that ended the tour (except for the State College Pa last min. show) and I really thought those were especially good shows...Just wondering if I've ever met anyone from here and didn't know it.

Countless....I agree about the 10-4-09 show. I remember that it was remarkably solid from start to finish, without one slack moment. And I remember Larry Campbell's fiddle really adding a lot to Come On In My Kitchen.

Funny - I think 90% of my Waffle House visits have come after ABB shows around 1 or 2 AM....
