I have the setlists for both the DTB and ABB. Jaimoe's band played from 5:06 - 6:00, Derek Trucks Band played from 6:00 - 6:47, the Allman Brothers played from 7:14 - 9:01 and Tom Petty came on at 9:48, we left early so I'm not sure what time he came off. The setlist for the DTB was the exact same as the Jones Beach show minus All I Do:
Volunteered Slavery >
I'll Find My Way
Crow Jane
Sahib Teri Bandi
Key To The Highway
Mahjoun >
Greensleeves
I Wish I Knew

The ABB set was very "popular" songs heavy:
Don't Want You No More >
Not My Cross To Bear >
Southbound
Trouble No More
Woman Across The River
Old Before My Time
Come and Go Blues
Statesboro Blues (Derek)
Into The Mystic
Ain't Wastin' Time No More
Melissa
Jessica >
One Way Out

Encore

Midnight Rider
Whipping Post

The show definitely had very high energy and it always seems to me that whenever they open with such high energy for the first 4 or 5 songs it always goes into "Old Before My Time". It was still a very fun show. The place was packed for them and everyone in the crowd loved it.

It's good to see the brothers on for 2 hours even though they were "special guests".

I was reading on another board how there was many many drunks last night. Fights, cat fights, kids falling over each other. Anyone see that stuff?

Actually last yr. when I went to see Petty and the Crowes, it was packed with younger kids and the scene was a bit out of hand. Thats the lawn for ya though

Excellent evening at Hartford! That place was FULL, too, the most people I have seen in a while. Tough on the beer and bathroom lines.

DTB played in the sunlight and played well. They really covered the bases from their catchy new tsongs, which really should be radio hits, to that nice long Greensleeves jam out, with a crowd-pleasing "Key to the HIghway" in between.

I had assumed with such a warm-up that Derek would be taking more of the leads tonite, but Warren was aggressive from the git-go. They ALL were. The ABB set was heavy on hits and oldies but delivered with much potency. Gregg's voice was EXCELLENT; I've listened to the Instant Live from last night a few times already and I think he sounds stonger than he did at last year's Hartford show, even though he took most of the vocals. Spirited "southbound" and a crushing "Whipping POst," while "Into the Mystic" was just lovely.

While Petty would not have been my choice for headliner, he was excellent. After the ABB, a few of his initial songs sounded too one-dimensional to me, but he really won me over - good frontman, great band, very good songs. They covered Fleetwood Mac's OH Well" with fire and the Yardbirds version of "I'm a Man," and interestingly enough one of TOm's new songs sounded sort of like "Seven Turns" to me, though those are common enough chords I suppose. What was sort of irritating for those of us on the lawn who were mostly watching the screen was that while Mike Campbell would be serving up a scorching guitar solo, the screen would just show Tom Petty amiably strumming a G chord and smiling. Get on it!
A buddy noted that Tom Petty is the male Chrissie Hynde - pretty good point in terms of Tom's role onstage as frontman, bandleader, rhythm guitarist, persona, even his odd inflection. Heck, even his body shape. And I bet they have the same hairdresser.

Great to hear the ABB sound so hot though. A lot of the crowd was there for Petty, so I'm glad they got to see what the Brothers do.
As a side note, that was the best-looking crowd I have ever seen - so many beautiful women! I think I have been going to too many Deep Purple shows.

Am I that out of touch with what the public will pay for? Petty closing for the Brothers just doesn't compute. See y'all at PNC & Red Rocks (YMSB opens and has a strong local CO following - I get that fit)

If WSP toured a summer with ABB, they'd probably trade closers, don'tcha think?

I'm much more a Brothers guy, but Panic does a little better at the Box Office.

How about Grace Potter opening the shed tour next summer?

Yep a great, great night of music, Derek was great, the brothers were very aggressive, and Petty just incredible. Petty's band is seriously great, I mean you have Benmont Tench on piano who just works with EVERYBODY, also Steve Ferrone on drums who used to be in the Average White Band, Mike Cambell, etc.

It started out a little light audience wise for the brothers but the audience seemed to grow with each song. And as far as the setlist went for the brothers just read what Gregg said in recent interview that I got off of this site.

And [Trucks] is that age; when I was that age I was touring that much. I remember in 1970, we worked 306 nights, and most of them were for free! We just needed to get around and wanted everybody to be, "Hey, man, you ever heard of these dudes from the South? They're called the Brothers or some kind of brothers." We worked hard to get our name out -- still do, in fact.

"still do, in fact".....I thought that was very interesting.

I agree with Jim. Excellent show!! That Derek brought tears to my eyes in a very good and "JOYFUL" way! He is just so polished!! The high energy vibe was there for sure. Gregg's vocals are just so breathtaking. He seems to hold onto certain notes and lyrics a bit longer than usual on particular songs that just blows me over!!! Big Daddy is at his BEST my friends!! Warren will always be his unbelievable self and I truly love him so much. He was happy and smiling!! His solo's along with Derek's just make you say "How wonderful it is to have two amazing slide players." It's hard enough to have one good slide player in a band but to be blessed with two!! Hey now, I just can't get enough!! You all hear what I'm saying??

I was pleasantly surprised with Petty (not completely won over) but mostly I loved how tight his band is! I agree again with Jim that Mike Campbell should have been more viewable to the screen while playing his solo's. The stage lighting and format that coincided with the screens were impressive. Tons of young folks which does leave room for imature behavior but I just block that out.

Very glad I went!!

Pretty pissed I only got to hear I Wish I Knew, we got lost on the way up there so we basically missed the whole DTB set (at least I get to see them Monday up in Albany). But the ABB set was excellent. Jeff youre right it was definately fan favorites but it was a pretty awesome show. Highlights were definately Jessica which Derek ripped on and Whipping Post which was absolutely amazing. It was also good to hear Into the Mystic again.

Yes jpj5g, Derek ripped on Whipping Post. I almost left for a bathroom run. So glad I waited.

Yea it seemed like Derek was louder than all the rest of the band members but not much.

We didn't find that to be the case at all but we did have dead center seats so I'm sure that was in our favor.

No one guested for DTB or ABB. I left early during Petty's set but I asked my friend who stayed and no one sat in.

Do you suppose this may have been purposely done to help prevent the ABB from completely showing up Tom Petty? Just a thought.

One thing about Petty is when he said he was honored to share the stage with the Allman Brothers. The crowd went nuts!! That was cool.

The Brothers were so much fun! They played a sort of compact set with the first 11 songs coming in at barely over an hour! Jessica & WP were the only tunes where they stretched out. My only complaint was that they were slotted for 2 hours, but played only 1:45.

Funny that susea & jpj5g commented on Derek's playing on WP - I thought it was Warren that burned brightly!

and it was kinda cool to pick up my IL and then head back inside for more music! Btw, it sounds great!

for me, one of the highlights of TP's set was 'Handle with Care' - he did a nice job with George's vocal part. I also give him props for his choice of covers - the Yardbirds' arrangement of "I'm A Man" & Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well". And seems that he saved the most rockin tunes for the end, like "Don't Come Around Here" & "Refugee".

And JimSheridan hit the nail - the bathroom lines were nasty!
