I'm not talking about the albums themselves but rather the string of shows the band used to do at smaller intimate theatres like the Orpheum in Boston and the Warfield in SF.

Anyone else wish they would still do these type shows? I would love to see a mini run at the Wiltern in LA . The Mule seemed to have a lot of fun doing one show.

They still do a couple a year.

I'd like to see them come back to the Louisville Palace.

I'm hoping that a trend starts in the direction of more shows in smaller theaters. Both Mark Knopfler and David Gilmour did it last year in the US. All their shows were in theaters with seating between 2,000 and 6,000 (the only 6,000 seat theater being Radio City, most venues were less than 4,000 seats).

Just like baseball has realized that the game is best enjoyed in more intimate ballparks, hopefully musicians will start to move away from the big arenas and sheds and play more theater-style venues where their performance and their music is ideally enjoyed.

Rob I posted about the Orpheum in this thread on the first page. I have been to numerous shows at Great Woods and it does not have the feel that the Orpheum has. I saw the ABB shows there and am still amazed. I also saw Skynyrd there twice and other bands I cannot remember now. I wish they would come back to it and do a 3 or 4 day run. That would be special!

I'd like them to do a few shows at the Fillmore Auditorium here in Denver. Back in 2002 they did a Friday thru Sunday run that was GREAT!

I'm sure this makes the tix sky rocket in price but damn would i love to see the band in a small intimate theatre setting.

Smaller venues should also mean reduced costs. Smaller sound systems, lighting rigs, and less crew needed to put the whole show up (and down). Take Gilmour's concerts in the US in '06. Other than some lasers and a fair amount of smoke, he did none of the special effects that Floyd shows of the past are famous for. It had to be far less expensvie to run that way.

Thing is, Fujirich, most artists would like to make about the same amount of cash per show, I think. Allmans Beacon tickets are more expensive than the tickets for summer shows at larger venues. Dickey Betts tickets for the nice small Ridgefield Playhouse in May 2007 are going for $70+ a pop, whereas you can see him at larger places for half that.

The first Evening w/ the Allman Bros was supposed to be recorded at the Macon City Auditorium on new year's eve(year escapes me-89-90?) but apparently the quality was not great so the Orpheum recording was used. I was at that show in Macon that night and man I've never seen so many ponytails and wallets w/ chains on them(not that there's anything wrong w/ that!). Perhaps my "play all night" just didn't come through on the recording and that may be why they scrapped it!

2002 was the most recent year they were doing these smaller theaters all over the country. YES, they need to do it again!! I went all three nights at The Warfield in San Francisco. Some of my friends thought I was nuts. In fact, I remember my chiropractor saying, "What can you hear the second and third nights that you didn't hear the first?"
"EVERYTHING", I said. "They repeated maybe three songs over the course of three nights. This is the most amazing band in the world." He kinda backed off then. And tickets were very reasonable. I think I paid around $50 + service charge each night.

In May of 1996 the ABB did a 5 nite run at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago..
I went to 4-5 shows and it was the GREATEST ABB experience I've ever had....
Just get ahold of those shows and you will hear what I am talking about........
5-7-96,5-8-96,5-9-96,5-11-96,5-12-96........Dickey and Warren Hittin the Note.....
Tom Doucette and Duane Betts sat in for a few of the shows......

What if they played at the Berklee School of Music in Boston like Derek and Susan did!!! With the way the acoustics are this would be well over the top!!

Eric, you know I was at all those Orpheum shows too!! These two shows were quite memorable (3/3/92 and 3/4/92) as my birthday was the day before and I ended up sitting in the 2nd and 3rd rows for each night!!!

Just been on FAQ's and looked up ' Why the ABB don't tour Europe'. And the excuses are pathetic. Apparently the touring season in Europe is the same as in the US!!!!
**** !!!!
American bands tour Europe year round
I'm also told that there are limited appropriate venues for a bands like ABB to tour over here because of the size of the show. Well considering the Rolling Stones manage it pretty good and loads of other US bands do in all size venues from pubs to stadiums, I do believe some members of the ABB are either greedy or lazy

Well we must be lucky here in North Florida because Dickey is playing Freebird Live (again, starting to be an every year thing...woo hoo) and this place isn't a theatre at all, it's a bar and tix are $25 !
