Better yet would be Barclays in Brooklyn. MSG has terrible acoustics and feels too big for a great ABB show. Of course, that's just me, I love the intimacy of the Beacon. Never experienced a great Garden show. The Stones were good at Barclays...

Neil Young and Crazy Horse at MSG in 1996, ABB at MSG in 1990 with Toy Caldwell on Southbound were good shows.

In one interview with Butch, he said following a fall tour, they might end up at MSG if it could be worked out.

Stevie, is your info different/better from the article Alan posted?

I like MSG, at least compared to most arenas I've been to.

I saw MeatLoaf twice in a week that year. Opened for the ABB the week before at the Garden State Arts Center. Meat and Gregg are good friends.

I like the Garden. Saw many good shows there but would not be as inclined to travel there as I would to see ABB at Atlanta's Fox, the Chicago Theatre, Red Rocks, or the Hollywood Bowl. NYC is the easiest of all those travel destinations (for me). But, for a myriad of reasons, I'd rather spend my money and time catching shows in the other venues.

But I wouldn't boycott a MSG show.

They did an outstanding but short set closing out night one at the Clapton Crossroads festival at MSG last April.

The ABB looked great on that MSG stage at the Crossroads show.
The sound was incredible all Friday night. I think that was a special sound system brought in by the Crossroads Fest.?

Keep in mind that this is a newly reconstructed MSG arena. No longer are there the multi-levels Loge(Red seats)>1st Promenade(Orange)>2nd Promenade(Yellow)>3rd(the 300 Greens)Promenade>and the upper Blue seats(400's).

Now it's a lower level and upper level and in between the corporate boxes.

I haven't been to the Garden since Crossroads Fest. show so I don't know what the sound is for other shows.

It would be sweet to close the year with a show(s) at MSG.
Get Steve Winwood and Los Lobos or TTB as opening bands and the show will sell well!

How about an Allmans Last Waltz at MSG to end the 45 year run. No opening bands but plenty of guests. The should name it "The End of the Line" or "Victory Dance"

You would need a rock impresario like legendary Bill Graham to pull one off like that.

And you would need Bill Graham's wallet to afford a ticket.

Why any show in NYC would be anywhere other than the Beacon is beyond me...

That said, if you're gonna go out big, pick somewhere back where it all began like Macon....

They need a hub city with a large arena for a final show. I'm sure people would travel from all over the world if it is indeed the last show of the Allman Brothers Band.

I also heard rumors of another few Beacon shows this fall. That would make perfect sense to me.
Afterall, nobody's made any kind of definitive statement, aside from the fact that the current line up is on board until the end of 2014. I would much rather have 3-6 more Beacon shows than any at MSG.

The Garden is a horrible idea..I have been to countless shows there over the years, the new new one too..the sound has always been adequate at best. Barclays Center is a better venue..sound system is great, sight lines are excellent..even at the top of the venue...Multiple nights would be the way to go.....something however tells me ($) it will be at the Garden

I have several thoughts about this. I would bet it is MSG due to it being a Dolan controlled venue as the Beacon is. But I hate the renovated MSG. The sound sucks, the place looks like a generic venue with little personality. For the life of me, I don't know why they did away with the different colored sections which made it so unique. Now .... . Having said that I did think the sound at Crossroads was excellent and I wonder why all of the shows at the Garden do not sound like that.

Someone mentioned the Neil Young show at MSG from 1996. I have seen Neil close to two dozen times since 1978 and that is my favorite Neil show I have seen live. Just stupendous.

Regarding the Barclays Center. I have seen 5 shows there live and the sound has been a mixed bag. Sat upstairs for Pearl Jam and McCartney, and I thought the sound was poor. Particularly for Pearl Jam which was dreadful. I am again sitting up there for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and keeping my fingers crossed. I had lower level seats for the Who and thought the sound was very good. The sound there was better than when the Who did the benefit for Cancer Cares several months later at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden and that was a much smaller venue. I also sat in the 5th row at the Barclays for Bob Seger and Joe Walsh and the sound was excellent. It was also excellent when saw Jay Z sitting in the back of the orchestra.

So I think it will be at MSG with a ton of guests and be a three set show.

Pearl Jam shows haven't sounded good since 1994. I've seen them 11 times. I don't know what they did after that spring tour (other than replacing the drummer) but everything they've tour-wise done since has sounded like **** .

The only opening bands that would seem fitting at all would be TTB and/or the Mule. I could get pumped about something like that and maybe feel justified paying the ridiculous prices they will be sure to charge.

As its the same owner as the Beacon, it won't be surprising that they play MSG. Lot's of money to be made with big population to fill the seats. Nothing will probably be announced until the NYC shows are over first.
