I started keeping my ABB stubs in 03 when I started hanging with the "cool kids" here
I have seen WAY more then I thought.
All told, next Tuesday is show #75 for me. ( Wanee/Peachfest each count as 2..lol)


Im sure next Tuesday night will be a surreal moment but I am insanely grateful for all the good times this Band has given me,and the loonies AKA lifelong friends I have met through this site made it that much better.

Ya'll a great bunch!

Thanks. That's from 1973 on and includes shows from San Diego to Santa Barbara, Oakland to San Francisco. Not too bad considering I all but lost interest from '98-'06...

Sadly, I won't break 100...

Sittin at 90---after this week, I'll end up with 92 shows since 1993...

(I really should have started going to the beacon earlier than 2009).....

Sixty Seven for me. Ive got all my tickets back to 1974 Knebworth the first time they played UK.
I have seen them each time they played Europe, and many times in the US, Beacon, Wanee, Chicago, San Francisco, LA, Red Rocks, Sturgis, and most of the southern venues. I guess I must be a fan from good old England.
Shame they have not come back since 1991.

Only in the 20's here, every CNY show since 1992, Wednesday will make Beacon #4.

Two venues in Canada, three shows in PA.

If that's the case, I've seen them 20 times at Wanee alone! (I know we can spilt hairs on the 2008 show when Wanee Family Jam headlined when Gregg was out sick, but it was still ABB, IMO.)

I absolutely count Wanee as 2X if I saw them there separate nights and it was billed as the Allman Brothers. I am sitting at around 60 shows...lost count a few years ago. I saw the following lineups and years:

Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Dickey/Warren/Woody/J.Neel (1990)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Dickey/Warren/Woody/Marc (1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Dickey/Oteil/Jack/Marc (1997, 1998, 1999)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch//Dickey/Oteil/Derek/Marc (1999, 2000)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Oteil/Warren/Jimmy (2000 at Christmas Jam)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Oteil/Warren/Derek/Marc + Chuck (2001, Chuck played well over half the show at pair I attended)
Gregg/Jaimoe/Butch/Oteil/Warren/Derek/Marc (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014)

The 2002-2014 run includes some shows where Jack Pearson sat in for certain songs and 2-3 shows where Bruce Katz played as second keyboards from start to finish. And for as many times as Chuck played with them after 2001, I never saw another one after that years.

In all, I have seen them every years since 1990 with the exception of 1995. I have seen the ABB in GA (7 venues/parks), FL, NY, NC, MA and LA.

honestly not sure on my count either ~ first show was 1989.... I do know it's the band I've seen more than any other... but Mule is following very close behind at this point & I anticipate they will surpass that sooner than later...
but, above all things, I share your vibe my brotha <3 " grateful for all the amayzen times shared, memories made & lifelong friendships with likeminded souls ~ things that have enriched my life immensely ~ accompanied by the best music ever created to fill our atmosphere ~ the soundtrack of our lives

I went back and made a list of the shows I recall going to based on the live show database. I'm at 36 shows. All but one have been in the last 10 years. The first was 35 years ago, May 26, 1979. There was a 25 year wait between my 1st and 2nd ABB shows. Who can beat THAT?

Although the Brothers are my favorite band of all time, I've only seen them a paltry three times. The first time was 1979, the second in 1980 (both in Ohio) and the final time was 2009 in Oregon. (Gregg does NOT like playing in Oregon for some reason- does he have a bunch of parking tickets he hasn't paid in Portland or something? He even cancelled his own band's show in Portland last summer at the last minute without a word of explanation.) So, I had to wait 29 years between the second and third ABB shows! I've always envied you guys that could just drive a couple of hours (or minutes!) and see them every spring and summer without too much effort. Anyway, I've already made the switch to the Tedeschi Trucks Band and I'm looking forward to seeing them again and again in the coming years. Only three weeks till their next show! But long live the Allman Brothers Band! "Thanks for the memories..."
