Awesome set list Lee! Sounds like a great show. Can only imagine what you felt when you heard the opening cords to Whipping Post. I'm happy for you. Stay well my friend.

The Brothers played great last night at Rosemont, but that set list was really weak.
After seeing the setlists from the Beacon earlier this year I expected much more.
It seemed like it was written for the lowest common denomenator of Allman fan.
I for one have no interest in hearing their greatest hits album at a show.

You simply cannot compare the Beacon and Summer setlists, particularly this summer. They played 90 different songs in March, but have stuck to pretty much a "traditional" rotation this summer. A friend who went to the VB show with me said "when I go to see the ABB, I don't want to see all these covers, I want to hear their songs". He is a live music fanatic who has seen DTB and Mule (and Dickey) over the last couple of years.

They have clearly stuck to their core songs, but the versions are quite different from the '03 shows or previous line-ups.

I was a little disappointed by the setlist, too. I should've expected it though considering what they've been doing up until now. They did change up the delivery of some of the tunes, though, and of course they really brought their A-game to the table, so no big complaints.

The bass jam alone might be worth the price of an IL. It was groove-tastic!!!

My first Mule show, btw, even though I have a bunch of their music, and I was very impressed. I love the keys and wish he would solo more.

Seeing the Mule then ABB, however, is just a bit too much Warren for one night for me..

Good show....but I thought sound was terrible. VERY muddy and generally boomy (during both Mule and ABB sets).
I couldn't hear Derek very well....even during his solos. I shouldn't have to struggle to hear Derek...especially during a solo. Warren's guitar was cutting through the mix like butter, on the other hand.....all night long.
I've seen a bunch of shows at the Rosemont Theater, and it is a (notoriously) good sounding venue...so I don't know what the deal was last night.
Percussion was WAY too loud as well.....took away from the drum/bass groove in my opinion.
oh well.....

Are you talking about the same Danny Louis I know? He solo's the whole show the way I see it, sometimes too much. When he sat in on the Same Thing on 8/27 he solo-ed for a good two minutes.

That setlist rocks, Anyday, Dreams, whipping post, and The Weight? That right there is worth the price of admission.

Wow, talk about 2 entirely different opinions of the same show setlists.

Just goes to show you can never EVER please everyone. ...Some folks want familiarity and others want to see them play the wild, spacey jams and less popular stuff. THats why you need to see a few shows if possible so you get to see it all.

Don't think I ever heard that one before.

I really am surprised to see so much negativity about last night's show. But Eddie summed it up perfectly, you cannot please everyone.

Jaymz - where were you sitting for such poor sound. I was in sec 108 row N and the sound was very clear. I have listened to my recording and it is confirms what my ears heard. My only complaint on the sound setup would be that it was very loud, at least to me.

I was in Sec. 106...row DD. Being just under the balcony, it's a sort of 'bass trap'. So, I walked around a bit during the show, and it was slightly better...still very boomy though. I dunno....II got the instant live cd (although I had them mail it to me instead), so I'll have to give that a listen (although I'm sure they have a seperate/dedicated mix for the CD recording)
What did you record on? I thought about bringing my taping rig....but I was under the balcony, and decided not to.

Wow. To each their own I guess. Altough I could have done without Midnight Rider and Melissa having heard them so many times, I thought the setlist was great! I thought the show was great. I mean, if you don't want to hear Dreams, Jessica & Whipping Post...


I was in the fourth row, Oteil's side. During Mule's set, I was right against the wall, RIGHT in front of the speakers. And I could hear fine. And this is Mule! Moved just off center for the ABB and again could hear fine.

Definitely a Warren night which was fine. Hoping for Derek on Dreams but it was still great. That being said, I sure hope they find a different venue next go round. The Rosemont is one of my least favorite venues. There are lots of better places here in town to play.

All in all, a great show. And I won't even comment on Mule's closing song!

Oh, and the light show was great. I like how they opened with it for the very first song. And of course, the footage of Woody, Berry and Duane during No One To Run With is always a beautiful, moving touch.

(This is from one of my Guest Book posts, and I wanted to share it here as well)

Much love out to the Chicago ABB posse. So many of you fine folks and friends...You know I love all of youz guyz. I missed throwing a few hugs out there last night, so next time I have to toss out a little extra sugar.

I had such a great time last night...

Thank you to all and everyone for being a part of making it such an awesome event...Thanks to the ABB for touching my soul to it's deepest depths and to the magical mystic angel Kirk.


Sweet

Wow, only one Whipping Post in 37 shows? What are the odds of that happening?

I thought it was played roughly once every two or three shows . . .

I have more comments, but I'm putting a review together, so I'll save them until then.

Peace.

Nice seeing you fellas last night.

I had one of the best seats in the house from a sound standpoint. I was in 109-W, right next to the sound board, hearing what the soundman was. The mix there was very good. I surpised the sound was that bad in other sections. I've seen the brothers there before in another section and the sound was good there too.
Would have been nice to see Derek stand out a little more after seeing Mule for a 90 minute set.

_______________________________________________________________________

I was Sec 104, 5th row about 25 feet right out in front of Greg. I thought the sound was good but did observe one specific potential sound problem. During Mellisa, Greg seemed a bit irritated about something and I think it was the mix. Three separate times during the tune, he gave a "Cut" sign - you know, the one where you run your hand across your throat. He did this twice looking straight ahead at the sound board staff and a third time he was looking Otiel's way at what I believe was a side-stage sound guy. Then after the song was finished, Gregg walked over to Warren and spoke to him for a good 10 seconds. Anyway, the tune sounded great to me but something was definitely up sound wise.
A few other comments: Oteil had a great night. Lead singing on Anyday was wonderful and his base work and bass solo were outstanding. Not a complaint, but seeing Warren for a full backing set then playing a major lead role in the ABB set was unique - how does he play that hard for four hours? I was right in front of Greg - my first real chance to focus on him due to my seat location and all I can say is he is still the man - alway was, always will be. They just don't make lead guys like that anymore. Also, did anyone else see Derek snap the first string on his guitar during Whipping Post? Just before about mid-way through the tune, he was taking lead solo work and he seemed to be really pumped -he was kicking some serious a.ss. The string snaps and he reworks his solo for about another 2-3 minutes. Greg was watching this the whole time. Kind of funny but right before the guitar tech came out with a replacment guitar, Derek looked at Warren and help up the guitar with this "what the hell" look on his face, but with a slight grin so he must have felt good about playing hard. Derek took several minutes to re-tune the new guitar as Warren took lead - could just be me but it appeared Derek never got the new instument "just right". Also, I am just a casual fan of Woman Across the River but the solos by both Warren and Derek were just smoking.
Anyway, great gig as always! Mule back in town Dec. 9th at the Riveria.
