Quick thoughts:
Everything was solid except Gregg vox on NOLTRW. Egypt was off the charts!
Revival, Hoochie Coochie Man & Who's Been Talkin' were also highlights. Wonder what they will play for the second set... Lol

If they play Blue Sky with the Vocals, let Warren sing it. Just my opinion

Just got back... one of the best shows I can remember in a long long time.
Just for the record they did play Blue Sky, Gregg sang warren sang harmony on the chorus.
Gregg sang the second chorus (post solo) in the middle of warrens solo...

Whose been talking was my favorite tune of the night.

Oteil played Allen Woodys bass during Soulshine... saw it on stage last night but I dont think he played it once.

Couple big mess-ups during the show but their recovery was amazing. One that comes to mind was during DT's solo in Mountain Jam. The band was all over the place it got to a point where Oteil and warren just stopped playing.

Overall great show, lots of tunes I haven't heard in a long time, Egypt, Sailin', and like I mentioned early Whose Been talkin'
Blue sky reminded me of the old shed shows of the 90's with Dickey

Great night!

Just home from night 2. Can't ignore how much of an issue Gregg is with his vocals. I lost count tonight. Not just forgetting lyrics, but coming in at the wrong time, and not being able to sing the vocals in pace with the tempo of the song other than the slowest of tunes (Stormy Monday last night being an example of a song he could sing). Enjoyed the playing, the first set song selection, Les Brers and Mt. Jam particularly in the Eat a Peach set, and of course Blue Sky other than when Gregg came in on top of Warren's solo slot. Sorry to be a downer, but the situation is so apparent, and it's uncomfortable to watch. Despite that, I'll be back Friday.

I was at the show last night, wish I was there tonight, I am troubled by the comments on Gregg, and I am not going to be an apologist for him. Let us look at the picture, he will be 64 next week, his body over the last couple years cut up like an animal at the slaughter house. Most would have thrown it in, called it a day. These guys are a good group; I would not have lasted a year living like Gregg did, it is tough to hear but, you have your heart operated on, lung too, a new live,r a hernia for good measure and tell me you can get up on that stage work a Hammond B3 and belt out the blues like a 21 year old, and then I will be glad to sit and chat music with you. That all told I will be there Saturday night to close it out.
Peace out folks

No doubt a rugged stretch. So rugged he sounds like 64 going on 84 IMHO.

I am not sure why this is so disturbing to me -- but -- it is. I do not know Gregg Allman personally, but his music has brought me much joy over the years and his "story" is a compelling one. From everything I have read and heard -- music is his LIFE. So, it is no small thing that some people feel his gifts are so diminished that he has become a "problem" and by implication, ought to, perhaps, leave the stage. This is not a new theme on this site, whether is is couched as 'concern' or expressed as disappointment or annoyance or impatience -- be it over muffed lyrics, messed-up timing or lack of song-writing.

Gregg has had, by all accounts, a brutal time of it in recent years, a host of serious medical/health problems requiring intense treatments, major surgeries, powerful medications. He's battled pain, fatigue, the effects of those treatments, surgeries and meds and no doubt frustration, as well. One wonders if the debilitating effects of his health issues will lessen over time he's only 18 months out from the transplant surgery and had pneumonia and hernia surgery just 3 months ago or become more pronounced.

It is difficult to know what the future holds -- we can all speculate about the winding down and/or grinding to a halt of the ABB, the nature and arc of side-projects and supplanting main projects. It is difficult, indeed, for those of us who love this band -- and who love this man -- it must be be beyond difficult for him.

And, yet, he keeps on because he needs to and he wants to and despite the glitches and lapses he still has much to offer. He is an astonishingly tough road warrior.


This is not about "criticizing" or "defending" him -- just feeling the need to express how sad these posts make me. We are living in harsh times, so little kindness and so much cruelty and negativity. Gregg Allman seems a gentle soul and an eternally optimistic one. He and his music have always served to ease the pain and make the world seem a better, more tolerable place. It is a difficult/troubling thing to even contemplate that ending.

I hope that for Gregg, the road can -- does -- go on forever.

Brightboy you said it better than I did, you summed it up perfectly, and yes the road goes on forever.

That's almost as disturbing as hearing about the problems with Gregg. This ain't the GD, or I hope not. And still not crazy about these guys playing "Blue Sky." But with Gregg, you know all of what he has gone through physically and he probably should have taken the year off and not gone to Europe. His vocals on Austin City Limits from months ago worried me. People do bounce back from these things. Then again, after you get to a certain age, something can hit you and throw you off your game in a big way. He should probably go home, chill and get healthy so that there is more music in the future.

It was great - I wasn't thrilled that Gregg got lost on Blue Sky and came in early, but his bobbles don't bother me much compared to the overall quality of the show. Les Brers was probably my favorite song, but I enjoyed the whole show. It is just unbelievable that this band is so good after all these years. "Eat a Peach" is special to me because it was my introduction to the ABB at age 10 in 1971. What a great night!

I wonder how long the playing of the band can cover for Gregg? I just hope Gregg knows when the it is time to hang it up. I know Butch has spoken about this recently, but that won't make that decision any easier. Who is going to have the balls to tell Gregg that it is over? I just hope they don't let it get to the point that it is sad to watch. I won't even go see BB King anymore because he is a shell of what he once was. Johnny Winter is also in that light. I love those guys, but want to remember them for what they were, not what they have become. There comes a time when the road does end, going out gracefully is what I wish for the ABB, not like some athlete that continues on way too long and embarasses themselves by wanting to hold onto the past. I am not suggesting that the ABB are there, but Gregg is certainly on that path.

Unfortunately, the road does not go on forever .

Going to the past two nights I can easily say this is the sloppiest the band has been as a whole. At this point in their 10+ year run they aren't really doing anything new and it is getting to a point where their improved intro's and breakdowns are getting repetitive also... Walk on guilded splinters and Hoochie Coochie man are two great examples of this. Two songs they have reworked to sound new and fresh but even their reworking is getting sort of "done out" at this point...
BUT let me say this, I dont think this road is coming to an end just yet. These small things that I mentioned above, Gregg coming in too soon, the band missing a change here or there or that complete mess up in Mountain Jam that I mentioned in my prior post. I truly feel that is only obvious to the true hard core fans like us.. ones who listening to the live recordings, go to multiple shoes a year, so on and so fourth. The casual fan and let me tell you there were a ton of them at the past two Boston shows don't notice these little blemishes in the shows. They don't nit pick like we can or do... or if they do notice it it becomes quickly erased by how the band corrects it and just melts your face off 30 seconds after.
And for that reason alone I think the boys will still keep going. Will we ever see a huge tour again? Probably not, but I think these 4-6 shows a month at a time, a few times a year will be going for a little while longer.
As sloppy as the band was last night, I loved the show. I can honestly say the best show I've seen since the 2009 Beacon run.

Here's hopping the next few months treat Gregg kindly. Sounds like a 10-13 show Beacon run would not be in his best interest right now

What an interesting post -- seriously. It says a lot about the contrast between many of the hardcore "nitpicking" --- dare I say "obsessive" fans that frequent this site -- and the rest of the world. <LOL> You also touch on the nature of LIVE vs recorded and when one has recordings of live performances there is the opportunity to scrutinize the former the way one might the latter. Not a phenomenon unique to ABB fans, of course. The word "FAN" does derive from "fanatic", yes? And fandom cuts both ways -- enormous love, support -- devotion to the band but also hypercritical, microscopic evaluation/analysis.

Too much knowledge?
Not always a good thing.
