Allman Brothers Band To Receive Billboard Legend Of Live Award

Oct. 2, 2008
Billboard Staff

The Allman Brothers Band will receive the prestigious Legend Of Live award at the 2008 Billboard Touring Awards, set for Nov. 20 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York.

The Legend Of Live award recognizes a touring professional who has had a significant and lasting impact on the concert industry. Previous Legend Of Live award winners include Rolling Stones promoter Michael Cohl (2004), Cellar Door Concerts founder Jack Boyle (2005), Sir Elton John (2006), and pioneering agent Frank Barsalona (2007).

The awards reception, which honors the top-performing tours, artists, companies and venues in the world based on Billboard Boxscore charts, caps the fifth annual Billboard Touring Conference Nov. 19-20.

"The Allman Brothers Band has rocked the house for four decades, 'hittin' the note' for veteran fans and converting new generations year after year," says Ray Waddell, Billboard’s executive director of content and programming, touring and live entertainment. "They're an American institution and concert icons, and Billboard is thrilled to honor them as this year's Legend Of Live."

On the cusp of their 40th anniversary in 2009, the Allman Brothers Band has long been one of the most compelling and popular live bands in the world.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers formed in 1969, and continue to tour regularly to packed houses and massive festivals. Known as one of rock's best live acts, the Allman Brothers Band were one of only two artists whose live albums ranked in the top 50 of Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" for their "At Fillmore East" album.

The Allman Brothers Band is made up of founding members Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks and Jaimoe, along with longtime members Warren Haynes, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge, and Derek Trucks.

Take care and know that you are loved,

As much as we all love the Grateful Dead, they have not recieved this award. They don't meet the intended criteria of this award. Only a select few have and the Allman Brothers Band have.

As Previously Stated:
The Legend Of Live award recognizes a touring professional who has had a significant and lasting impact on the concert industry. Previous Legend Of Live award winners include Rolling Stones promoter Michael Cohl (2004), Cellar Door Concerts founder Jack Boyle (2005), Sir Elton John (2006), and pioneering agent Frank Barsalona (2007).

Well, technically the "Grateful Dead" has not been a band since 1995 when Jerry passed on. This award wasn't even recognized back then. The ABB has always toured as "The Allman Brothers Band" regardless of the many lineup changes. I am pretty sure that has a lot to do with the criteria. Either that, or its been a HUGE oversight IMO...

Congratulations to Allman Brothers Band for a well-deserved honor.

But I have to say the Grateful Dead are equally as deserving. The Greatful Dead pioneered the concept that a touring band could be sucessful without having a great deal of radio airplay or record sales, simply by developing and maintaining a very large, and loyal fanbase, who stay and follow their bands/artists, year after year. Many bands and artists including the Allman Brothers Band, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews Band and yes, even Jimmy Buffett have applied many of the lessons from the Grateful Dead about developing and keep a strong fanbase, and have enjoyed similiar success through the years.

Oppps, I looked at 2-3 pages of posts and didn't see this. So ignore the other one I just started. Sorry.

Anyway, it is very nice that they are being recognized for all the years of touring they have done. Very nice.
