Wow, I guess I'll go to this one, especially since both John Hiatts will be there!

Nothing on the Fox site yet.

Dickey's 70th birthday is this Dec., the many musicians & people he too has worked with over the years, & the fans/family friends et al -- there should be a big outpouring of love for him as well, especially on his 70th b-day -- awesome to see it happening for Gregg, just as deserving of such an occasion...

Guest list is getting more and more impressive. Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi and Widespread Panic will be performing according to the official website!

Yikes! That'll take the wind out of one's sails.

I have to say that this is kind of weird, having a tribute to Gregg show. I mean, I'll take the ABB in the Fox any way I can get them, but I do not think he's especially worthy of a tribute. Warren is.

ha ha, brock, I share your confusion over this tribute, much less why it is at the fox of all places...must be a story of some sort behind it... brian wilson and jeff beck touring together? tribute to Gregg @ the fox?? strange days indeed...you have to wonder how long any one performer will be on stage, among other things...

Wow. Granted that the whole culture is sort of awash in tributes these days and many of them aren't necessary, but I think Gregg's reached that bar. And unlike Warren he's on the back nine of his career. This sounds like a great event.

Gregg's early songs stand the test of time - I'm glad they are having a tribute for him while he's still alive!

Looks pretty cool, if I lived within a couple hundred miles, I'd make the drive for this.

To be totally honest, I'd rather just see a full two sets of the Allman Brothers.

Great for Gregg. Will still be fun.

Prediction: tickets will be SUPER hard to get for this one.

With this lineup I would think the show will sell out.
WSP will bring in their fans along with ABB fans and the concert is at the Fox in Hot Lanta.

This should sell out with no problem with plenty of demand for more. I'm surprised they held it at a place as small as the Fox, but love that building.

I'll be online on 11/1 trying to get tickets.

I hope this show is either shown on TV or recorded & released at some point.

I'm glad it's happening and Gregg is certainly deserving. But truth is, Dickey is every bit as deserving of such an event.

He's deserving of it, no doubt. I know we all like to make fun of Gregg's interviews in which he gives the impression that he's constantly writing new songs. We chuckle because we know that he's far from prolific, but the man has written some great songs, man. Otherwise, why are we posting here? He totally deserves a tribute. This is a wonderful event, and the Fox is the perfect location for it!

I think I'll pass on this show, but probably won't be able to resist the DVD.
