How about Phil Lesh & Friends, as in the quintet, as the opener? I wouldn't mind Jimmy sitting on a few ABB tunes every once in a while either. I think it would be pretty cool and it would work quite nicely.

Haynes, Herring, Molo, and Barraco. It would be better than Ratdog?

Why do all Allman Brothers tours have to feature special guests, openers, or sit ins. I go to see the ABB to see that band. Nothing wrong with your Phil and gang deal, I just think especially with the 45th coming up, we need to focus on the band.

Well, it's a business. They need to put butts in the seats and they have proven that they can't do it on their own. Unless of course we are talking about a Theater tour? Then an Evening with would be appropriate. In fact, I would love to see a fall tour that would be just that. For a summer tour, they have to bring an opener that will put fans in the stands to help with attendance. The Q would be a perfect fit and their is a nice cross-over crowd with the Dead fans and the ABB. I really don't want to see Widespread or Ratdog and it has been since early 2000's that Phil has been the opener. In fact, I am pretty sure they co-headlined that tour and rotated who was the opener and closer. I wish the ABB could do a summer tour on their own, but that just isn't financially feasible for this band anymore.

This is what I would like to see them pull off.

I always thought it would be cool if they did a few theater runs in different parts of the country at different times of the year. Maybe other than the Beacon they could do a run in the south, in Chicago, and somewhere in Cali.

Yep- "An Evening With". The only way to go. With the exception of Tommy Talton sitting in for one song each night, the two Chicago shows this summer, as well as many Beacon shows each year, were all Allman Brothers, all the time. And that's the way I like it. And it's time they recognize the time has come to stop booking in these 10,000 seat outdoor venues, and book in 2500-3500 seat Theaters. Just my .02

Fox Theatre - Atlanta
Capitol Theatre - Macon
Carolina Theatre - Durham
Alabama Theatre- Birmingham
Tennessee Theatre - Knoxville
Ryman Auditorium - Nashville
Orpheum Theatre - Memphis
Palace Theatre - Louisville
Fox Theatre or Peabody Opera House - St. Louis
Saenger Theatre or Orpheum Theatre - New Orleans

Do this and I will never complain again in my life. I will also never go see live music again (I often say this after Wanee, takes me a month or 2 to get back in to things)

There were some pretty reasonably priced lawn tickets to the ABB show in Atlanta this year at the nearly full Verizon Encore Amp (12,000 capacity).

Reasonably priced tickets would not be the case at the Fox. I'd love for them to return for a 3 night "Evening With" run at the Fox, but there are tradeoffs.

Dfntly some tradeoffs Hotlantatim, but I will pay more every time for a much better sounding venue and the thought of no Skynyrd fans sticking around for 'Ramblin Man' after the opener.

Along w/ my dream Southern Theatre Tour, I'd like to add one more small request... the opening band is a collaboration of ex-member and friends: Jimmy Herring, Jack Pearson, Chuck Leavell, Randall Bramblett, Bill Evans, Ron Holloway, Jeff Sipe, etc and they can play whatever they want for 1.5hr. Then they just happen to be around to sit-in when fitting.

That's a valuable two cents.

However, please don't forget the 2000 seat theaters in DC and Richmond, the Warner and the Carpenter. Three nights in each, no repeats except for "Dreams" played each night featuring a different guitarist on slide. I'd go to all six of those then fly to Atlanta for three nights in the 4500 seat Fox.

As much as I love Atlanta's Fabulous Fox I bet the Warner and Carpenter sound better.

I don't really want an opening act. Give me two sets of the ABB in a beautiful theatre and I'm a very happy man.

The Allman Brothers Band at the Alabama Theatre is pretty much (one of) my wet dream(s).

Don't think it will ever happen, but didn't expect to see Mark Knopfler or Robert Plant & Sensational Space Shifters there, either.

I certainly understand the appeal of a small theater tour, and maybe we get that as part of the 45th anniversary.

I know both the Saenger and Orpheum in New Orleans were damaged VERY badly in Katrina and after a quick web search, it doesn't appear that either is open yet. After 8 years, you have to wonder if they ever will be. The Mahalia Jackson Theater has hosted Mule and others recently, maybe that would work for NOLA.

"As much as I love Atlanta's Fabulous Fox I bet the Warner and Carpenter sound better."

The Fox is a very "quirky" building with its own unique sonics. I've seen shows there that were some of the best-sounding shows I've ever heard, and I've seen shows there that sounded like mud. I think the key is that you can't turn it up TOO loud. You have to find a good level and let the natural acoustics of the building do the rest.

When it's dialed in just right, special things happen at the Fox

Don't get me wrong Ron. The Fox is one of my absolute favorite venues. I've been to many, many shows there. I flew from NYC to Atlanta to see the Grateful Dead there. I know a couple of the guys who worked on the restoration. When I worked for the Georgia Trust I toured it from rooftop to sub, sub sub, and sub sub sub basements. I've walked across the proscenium arch and walked the cat walks above the stars and been inside the marquee. I love that venue.

I'm just saying I think those two theatres in DC and Richmond, at half the size, could sound better.

And some dates in Michigan, Devos Hall in Grand Rapids would work well or my fantasy venue would be Frederick Meijer Gardens but I think that is a tad bit to small

Thanks to RPMcMurphy for the link about the Saenger Truly a beautiful place, I hope it lives forever.

I am a little confused, though. When I go to that link and click on "Events" I see shows for the Mahalia Jackson Theater.

Have they renamed the Saenger? Are all the shows I've seen over the past year or so listed as "Mahalia Jackson Theater" actually for the venue I know as the Saenger? Or is the Mahalia Jackson Theater a "sister venue" that shares promotion and ticketing with the newly restored Saenger? Not sure what is going on there.

Still, good news however you slice it!

I'm always surprised somebody besides me remembers that 5/17/05 show. no idea why your web search was mis-directed. plenty of saenger stories on nola.com if you search there.

All that I hope for is that the Chicago Theater shows become an annual thing. It would be so great for those of us in the midwest who can't make the journey to New York for the Beacon run every year. Both shows were fantastic this past year, and I have heard a lot of people say the same. Has there been any comments about the shows from band members, as to whether they enjoyed the shows themselves?
