If you've ever flown from Asia or the South Pacific
to the US you would know the flight is brutal. a guy like clapton
is more likely to get some r and r in australia, or close
by, before jumping on a plane to play a relatively historic
gig. it's gotta be important, even in ec's mind.
i'm going with the 19th.


Sometimes when you come off a 13 or 14 hour flight you're ready to go....I flew to Tokyo from Chicago in '05 and was in the air for over 14 hours and took a 2 hour train ride to Tokyo from the airport and went straight out again after checking into my hotel....had to eat that awesome Japanese food, which I know EC is a fan of as well. I think I was up for 36 straight hours before I crashed.

He is an experienced traveler. He knows what he is doing....

If I was a Melbournite with a ticket, I would be really pissed off if Clapton rescheduled just so that he could be at the Beacon on 3/12 when he has several other dates to be there.

I would be surprised if any artist would reschedule a show under these circumstances.

australia to ny is like a 20 plus hour ordeal, if
it is non stop. not to mention, basically he
would be jumping off of a stage and into
a plane to nyc. an experienced traveler yes, a spring
chicken no. age takes its toll on "world travelers".
i do agree in some rare occasions people may make
a great comeback from potential jet leg. it is
still remote and why take a chance like that on
an important occasion like the ABB gig?

Anyone checked the schedules of Warren Haynes or Derek Trucks ? They're my favorite guitarists . I just picked up a pair of Journey tickets because I've heard the two of them are going to show up there . I'm a huge Journey fan , but the last few years , their shows just don't cut it anymore and they had to bring in some star power . We Journey fans are pumped !

With any luck , Derek will walk out and take the solo on Open Arms (both fingers tightly crossed) . Rumor has it there will be a big finale that consists of Haynes , Schon ,Trucks , and Esteban on guitar . Liberace and Ray Charles on keys , Steve Harris and Jaco Pastorius on bass , Tommy Lee and Buddy Rich on drums .

I've heard from and inside source they're covering We Are The World and it's sure to be one for the ages . So they may step all over each other throughout the song , but so what ? I'll get to see all of those big names ... the music's secondary . I've seen them do plenty of quality shows and I don't care about that anymore .

Sound familiar ?

My barber told me today that tomorrow's show will just be a Phish show. Gregg will come out for the encore and sing Melissa. The fans in attendance will say it was the best Allman Brothers concert they've ever heard.

If u can believe it, that was the 1st set

They opened the 2nd set with I Know U Rider w/ Trey and Paige. Awesome stuff. Then all of them for Liz Reed which was off teh chart. It looked like Trey had practiced that solo for weeks. He was very impressive on this one. Once they left the ABB went into Dreams whihc was just fantastic and then Jessica which was extended big time. Encored Statesboro which was also extended and I probably am missing a song or 2. Overall it was one of the most powerful shows I have seen in some time. I mean they hit the gas and never let up. Greggs voice was awesome and Warren , Derek and Oteil were on fire. I dont know how they will top this one and its only show 3. Whew!
