It's been awhile since I logged onto this site. Why? I got tired of checking the tour dates year after year, only to find that my favorite band on earth was passing up California on their tour EVERY year.

Honestly, I was so bummed each year... every few days I'd log in to see if they added a date in L.A. Year after year.

You can imagine how I felt on Friday... when my buddy tells me that the Allman Brothers Band is coming to the Greek Theater in L.A. on May 19th and 20th!! I'll be there both nights. Hope all you SoCAL peeps will be there too!!!

I sure hope this turns out to be true! I know many West Coast peaches would love to have the Bros in their neighborhood again! Good Luck!

Let's just say it's confirmed by someone in the know. Mark your calendars for May 19th and 20th. The fans here in LA are starving for some shows. We'll be there in force!!!

on there schedule. Hell.......I hope they

I can't imagine they'd come to CA and only hit L.A., Moe. But, yeah... L.A.'s only a day's drive. I'm sooooo stoked right now!!!! Thank you, ABB!!!

In 2005 they played L.A., San Diego & Santa Barbara
with no Northern Calif. shows.

Well the Brothers have said they will tour more this yr. then they have in a long time. I would have to think a westcoast swing would be in the cards this yr. if it ever was.

I hear ya, Moe. I wonder why that is. Do they think they don't have a fan base out here or something? It's crazy. We're insane for some shows already!!! They skipped California altogether for so many years it seemed peculiar.. like maybe someone in the band owed child support in California or had a few outstanding warrants or something! Haha!

Anyway, it's INCREDIBLE news that they're coming back out this way. If we can make them feel loved and appreciated out here, perhaps they'll do a West Coast version of the Beacon run next year. I'd love to hit 8 shows in a row!

Got money... will buy tickets!!

The restraining order has never been lifted, so the drum trio will not be allowed to enter the state of California, as has been the case since '05. That whole thing, man, it didn't have to go down that way. It was such a tragedy, and such a shame.

Vegas and Red Rocks ain't that far away, anyway.

ZIPITY DOO DAA ZIPITY DAY!!! YABBA DABBA DOO!!!! Our Brothers back in So Cal! I'm already putting in the vacation day requests! So much for seeing Trower in Santa Cruz that weekend (he's coming to town later in the month anyway!).

First and only time I saw them was at the Greek. Hell, I might just stay in a hotel out there rather than have to drive home each night!

From 5/6/2005. THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER!

Hey there sweet family,

My crystal ball says it will be the Hollywood Bowl, rather than the Greek.

In any case, California here they come!

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana

Bands don't decide on the city. A promoter needs to buy the show for them to do one. Various reasons could come into play such as timing, routing and whether or not a promoter feels there is demand and a profit can be made with the ABB's asking price. Let your local promoter know that there is demand.
