I've seen them 24 or 25 times. I saw my first show @ Woodstock '94 in Saugerties, NY and my last @ the Peach Festival last year in PA. I won't try to list them all, but I think about 15 of the shows were at the Beacon.....last in '09 when they had King Curtis's old band and J. Herring join them.

Beacon highlights include the first time they ever played Layla (Butch came out spoke of Tom Dowd), and also the first Mountain Jam "sandwich" set.....opening night ('03, I think) with C. Robinson from the Crowes, and the Big House benefit show with Mule and DTB, etc.

Not the extended list that many here have, but I'm grateful for the opportunities I've had on a limited budget.

63, I think. The first one was 3/18/97 at the Beacon and the last one was Tuesday. I think 35 to 40 of those shows were at the Beacon. I've also seen them at the Palace, Roseland, Jones Beach, at Great Woods in Massachusetts, Virginia Beach, Raleigh and Charlotte NC, the HiFi in Atlanta, and the Rosemont near Chicago.

I saw them for the first time on October 16, 2009 at Starplex (aka Smirnoff Music Centre, aka center, aka Gexa Energy Pavillion) in Dallas and they were really good. Widespread Panic played as well and were very good. I had a chance to see The Allmans in 1993 at the B.B. King Music Festival, but I was only 8 at the time and it was outdoors in August in Texas, so my grandma came and picked me up early from that show. I saw Junior Wells & Buddy Guy that night, but missed The Allmans, BB King, & Eric Johnson.

I'm right around 50 shows. I am going to have to go back and count up the last few years.

My first was July 1990 right when Seven Turns was released (saw the Woody/Warren lineup 6 times; should have gone to more!)

My most recent one was in August 2012 at the same location as my first: Chastain Park Ampitheatre.

I will be seeing them twice in April at Spirit of Suwanee Park.

I have seen them 63 times since my first show in 1992. I would say that around 20 times at Jones Beach, around 35 times at the Beacon, and the rest at SPAC and one or two other places like Mountain Jam and Southampton College.

First show?.....1973 Oakland Colosseum.....w/Charlie Daniels and Marshall Tucker bands opening.
#2 was 1/1/74, I remember that Gregg did not finish the show....
In Oct. of '75 I saw them at the Forum in L.A... The "Win lose or Draw tour"....not memorable at all.
In 1979 I caught them in both San Diego and L.A. Dangerous Dan Debuts. At the Forum show, you were handed a circular sticker with the Brothers on it with the date of the show. I had that on the inside of "Enlightened Rogues' for the longest time. I also remember a lot of chatter about Jim Essery blowin' a mean harp in the parking lots before the shows,,
In August of 1980, John Belushi joined the Brothers on stage after doing a cartwheel in a Dodger jacket...Awesome.
In the fall of '81 they rolled into my new Hometown of San Diego, I made it to the show with some friends while on shrooms via a Taxi-cab. I recall nothing from this day.
1989 my friends and I road tripped up and down the state catching shows at the Shoreline, L.A., Concord and Sac....The band was "Hittin' the note" and all of the talk in the parking lots before the shows was about Warren...and that, "I heard they've been on fire man" kind of chatter, way cool.
In Aug. of '90 my girlfriend and I almost didn't make it to the show in Costa Mesa. Not having tickets we had to "scalp" two and ended up waaaay in the back...I remember not being able to see or hear and just got after it via beers...
In Oct. of '91 once again caught three shows in a row and managed to tape a good percentage of the Starlite bowl show in San Diego. Liittle Feat opened
In July of '92, caught them in Concord and sat in amazement as Warren ripped off the opening lines of "Don't keep me wonderin' "..."Blues Traveler" opened.
In May of '93 caught three in a row with the San Diego show in the Middle, taped most of that one as well.
In May of '94 I caught one of the nights during the Wiltern run, spent the night in that rat-hole of a town.
In July of '95 I spent the 4th of July with the brothers at the Del Mar Fair.
In 1996 I got back stage after the show and Met Allen and Warren for the first time. Very, very cool...
I think the '97 show in S.D. was my first Jack Pearson show......
I didn't see the band again until 2007 in Aspen where I met Derek and Oteil out by the tour bus ... after the show, my girlfriend and I met Jaimoe and took him over to this venue with "live" music and got him up on stage....Very cool memory..

Latest show?....2009 Escondido.....The Doobie Bros debacle...

With how many GAB & DBGS shows in between......

Around 50.

First was in Atlanta 1995. Seen them every year since 1995, started going to multiple shows every year since '98. Have caught them through out the Southeast...Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Macon, Live Oak...hope to catch them at the Beacon a couple of times before they call it a career, so I am aiming for next year.

Nassau Coliseum 1973. Ditto Roosevelt Stadium. If you remember the 1970's, you weren't really there? I remember seeing Gregg at the Felt Forum in 1974. Back then we did the Long Island circut at My Fathers Place, Calderone Concert Hall. Then NYC at Academy of Music on 14th st. Bottom Line in the Village. The Beacon was a beer soaked broken down old theatre. But it was OUR dump. If we weren't seeing Dickey/Gregg, it would be Lynyrd Skynyrd with Charlie Daniels opening at the Academy. Marshall Tucker Band at CW Post "Dome". Outlaws with Hughie and Billy Jones. Hot Tuna at the Suffolk Forum. It's a wonder I graduated high school. (Got kicked out of catholic high and finished up 6 months early. Went to San Francisco and caught the SNACK Benefit as well as several Winterland shows with Kingfish and John Cippolina. Then caught Jerry and Merle at Keystone and Palo Alto. A productive visit I'd say.)
So my answer is "many".

I don't really know the exact number: first show was September 1971 @ Clemson with Duane. Caught them every time we knew they were within driving distance thru the '70's, saw them in augusta Ga in "80 or '81 right before they packed it in. Only time I ever left a show thinking it was not worth the effort. When the reformed, first show was Greenville Sc in 1991, and Was lucky enough that business had me in NYC every month or 6 weeks, so I was able to catch a show or two at the Beacon each year or so from '92 thru 2002. Last Beacon show was the 40 anniv night in 2009. Also with better communication options by mid-90's we were able to find out about shows within our home area before hand, rather than afterwards like the old days, and managed to catch a summer tour show or two each year ( Chrlotte, Raleigh, Atl and anywhere in SC). Favorite Venues, love the Beacon, Fox in Atl, and loved finally seeing them in Macon for Big House grand opening WE. Home venue with most shows woud have to be Pavillion in charlotte, haven't missed one there since early 90's. Hopefully I will see them in April on Fri night @ Crossroads fest @ MSG and this summer/fall somewhere @ a shed in the Carolinas. Number of shows probably 75 or so, but I'd never count them all! There is no better sound than when the lights go down and the first notes of "Don't want you no more-> come thru the dark beginning a new evening with 'the Best of them all- From Macon Ga. - the Allman Brothers! '

Unfortunately, only 4 shows:


All at the World's Fair Park in Knoxville, TN (site of the 1982 World's Fair). It was such a great place to see shows back in the day. For some reason they quit having shows there quite a while back. I really miss it.

On the plus side, I can relive these awesome gigs anytime I want; I have them all on CD with 3 of the 4 from off the soundboard
