Having read word for word and drooled over everybodys write-ups and gotten very envious in the process of you guys and gals who have attended this years ABB shows I was just wondering, as I am form the U.K, what are the size of the venues the Brothers playing in this year, and how well are they attended?

The Oct Chastain Park shows will hold approx 5700 people. I expect not quite a sellout for those Evening Withs.

In the summer they generally play 10,000 to 15,000 person sheds. The Beacon Theatre holds about 2800 Peachheads.

Some of the venues DTB and The Mule play are less than a thousand.......I like those venues.

The Brothers are playing Charter One Pavillion in Chicago on Thursday which seats 7,500 people. Satuday they play at Red Rocks which seats 9,450. In the past the Allman Brothers have played the Chicago Theater (3,600) Rosemont Theater (4,300) and First Midwest Bank Ampitheater (then known as the World Music Theater) (28,000).

Wednesday's show is at DTE Energy Music Theatre, seats about 15,000. They've played Meadowbrook Music Theatre in metro Detroit too that seats about 7,800. ABB usually gets a good sized crowd in Detroit so they generally play DTE because Meadowbrook is a little too small for the demand, but DTE has quite a few empty seats.

Thanks for the info guys. Most of the U.K theatres hold around 2500-3000. The bigger arenas average about 12000. But the smaller academy type venues which I prefer hold between 200 and 1800. It would be nice to see the ABB playing Hammersmith Apollo on the 40th Anniversary tour. Now thats wishful thinking on my part.

PNC in Holmdel and Camden both in New Jersey hold 17.500 and 25,000. Holmdel had terrible weather so lawn seats didn't sell out. Camden had a lot of people on the lawn.
