It will be a few weeks before we get the actual CDs in, but we thought people might want to read the descriptions we have up of the Beacon shows. You can pre-order the shows by clicking on the link below each show.

We will also keep this thread updated as the shows actually come in to let you know when you can expect the CDs to arrive.

Enjoy!

Thursday March 11th

The Allman Brothers kicked off the 2011 Beacon Run in fine style with a show that featured the revival of several deep cuts, plus the first ever ABB version of "Spanish Key" by Miles Davis!

When the band hit the stage, a brief drum interlude set up the groove, and as the rest of the band joined in, the jam was hauntingly familiar, but hard to place. When they hit the main riff to "Spanish Key" the jazz fans in the audience nodded in approval. Derek absolutely rips on this classic from Bitches Brew!

The surprises didn't end there, with the band busting out "Sailin' Across The Devil's Sea" for the first time in years next. This underrated tune from the Where It All Begins album sounded great, and you'd never know the band hadn't played it in almost a decade. Another first set highlight was "Worried Down With The Blues," one of Warren's finest songs, and one the band hadn't played since 2005. The ABB also played a great version of "Kind Of Bird" in the first set, with Gregg taking a notable organ solo and the whole band hittin' the note!

The second set began with a heartfelt speech from Jaimoe where he dedicated the rest of the Beacon Run to legendary ABB roadie Joseph "Red Dog" Campbell, who recently passed away from cancer. A nice combo of "Blind Willie McTell" and "Midnight Rider" kicked things off, before another rare tune appeared. "High Cost Of Low Living" wasn't played at all in 2010, and it's great to have it back in the mix! Derek's new instrumental "Bag End" followed, painting a beautiful musical landscape.

A rousing "Revival" was appropriate for opening night at the Beacon, and the "Southbound" encore threatened to blow the roof off the venerable old theater!

Friday March 11th

This concert marked the first time the Allman Brothers Band ever played "River's Gonna Rise," a song from Warren Haynes' upcoming solo album Man In Motion. Another highlight of the first set was a great version of "Desdemona," with Randall Bramblett sitting in on saxophone. A powerful "Egypt" was sandwiched in between two Derek and the Dominos songs, with Devon Allman ripping some blues guitar for "Key To The Highway" and Jimmy Vivino joining the fray for a brilliant three-guitar onslaught on "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad."

The second set began with a delicate, ethereal "Melissa" before dropping the first "Maydell" in years, then Oteil takes the lead vocals for a driving take on Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression," only the third time the ABB have ever played it! The band definitely seems to be focusing on mixing up the setlists on this Beacon run.

Randall Bramblett returned to the stage for a funky, groovy "The Same Thing," with Oteil carrying over the mojo from the Hendrix tune and playing up a storm. A ferocious "Black Hearted Woman" with an extended drum segment in the middle was followed by an epic "Jessica" that finished the set in style!

The double encore of "Preachin' Blues" and "One Way Out" was the exclamation point on this great show!

Saturday March 12th

The Allman Brothers Band celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the recording of At Fillmore East by playing that classic album in sequence as their opening set. The show began after a clip was played of Duane speaking from the original show, saying "Hope this comes out alright, we're cutting our 3rd Album tonight!" then "Okay The Allman Brothers Band!!"

Derek Trucks played Duane Allman's 1957 Les Paul "Goldtop" for much of the set, summoning up extra mojo from the classic instrument. Gregg's vocals sound fantastic here, and the whole band digs down extra deep to pay homage to the greatest live album in the history of rock music.

The entire album was sublime, but the band hit another gear on "Elizabeth Reed" and "Whipping Post," two of the greatest songs in the ABB catalog. These versions may not have matched the legendary Fillmore East versions, but they were burning with the same passion and intensity that made the originals such classics.

After that amazing display, the band followed up with an appropriately old-school second set, full of blues classics and without a single song written after 1969. David Hidalgo of Los Lobos got a chance to play Duane's Goldtop on "Don't Keep Me Wonderin'" and a smoking hot, down and dirty "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl," adding his own guitar style to the ABB mix. Check out Warren on "The Sky Is Crying" at this show, hittin' the note indeed! He dedicated the tune to the late Eddie Kirkland, a blues legend from Macon, Georgia. The entire second set was bracketed by "Mountain Jam," and Warren got his turn on the Goldtop for hte dreamy slide solo in the set-closing reprise.

For the encore, the band played a lean and mean "No One To Run With," which only seemed appropriate after such an impressive display. Images of Redog were spashed up on the scrren along with Brother Duane, Berry and their road buddies. Once again, the ABB have confirmed their status as the best live band in the land, with no plans to give up the title any time soon.

Happy 40th Anniversary to At Fillmore East, and God Bless the Allman Brothers Band!

Monday March 14th

Weekday shows at the Beacon can often be hidden gems, and this Monday night spectacular is the perfect example! Full of talented guests and deep jams, the second set in particular is out-of-control good, as the ABB continue to raise the bar at the Beacon with every show.

The first set started off with the second “Sailin’ Across The Devil’s Sea” of the run, pleasing fans of the band’s 90s output. The dreamy instrumental “Egypt” reached new heights here, better than any version in years. Keyboardist John Ginty and guitarist/Yankee legend Bernie Williams joined in for a sultry “Who’s Been Talking” that will surely rank up there in “Best Version Ever” conversations about that tune.
The second set is where the band reached another level, another gear, making this show one for the ages. Ginty returned for Miles Davis’ “Spanish Key” along with sax master Bill Evans, and the ABB pushed the envelope of jazz-rock fusion on this one. Evans stayed on for “Soulshine” and “Dreams,” adding a lot to excellent versions of both and instantly earning a place in the Special Guest Hall Of Fame.
And that was just the first half of the second set! Energized by Evans’ appearance, the band tore through epic versions of “Black Hearted Woman” and “Rockin’ Horse” before an all-consuming “Les Brers” finished the set in style.
Just when you thought they couldn’t top that, a super-sweet “Melissa” and a ripping “One Way Out” with Devon Allman on Duane Allman's goldtop guitar made for a great double-decker encore. What a show!

Tuesday March 15th

The Allman Brothers Band kept the momentum going with another great show on this Tuesday night! This one had a distinct bluesy feel, and some help from special guests Steve Earle and Robert Randolph.

The first set featured two songs the band had dusted off on Opening Night, "High Cost Of Low Living" and "Worried Down With The Blues." Derek soared on the first, while Warren belted out the blues on the second, and you'd never know these songs were out of the rotation for years. "End Of The Line" made its first 2011 appearance next, thrilling fans of this 90s hit. Singer-songwriter Steve Earle, the heir to Townes Van Zandt's legacy and a leading figure in Americana music, joined the band for his tune "The Devil's Right Hand" as well as a stirring rendition of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" that saw Steve and Gregg trading verses! A powerful Jessica closed out the first set.

The second set continued in the same bluesy, rocking vein with scorching versions of "Leave My Blues At Home" and "Maydell" to kick things off. The Jimi Hendrix classic "Manic Depression" has turned into quite the showcase for Oteil, giving him a chance to display his vocal chops, and Warren and Derek show why they are worthy contenders for Jimi's throne here. "Gambler's Roll" makes its 2011 debut, and as he was all night long, Gregg is singing from his soul on this one. What a treat!

After a smokin' "Stand Back" the band digs in to an exploratory, unusual version of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" that sounded totally different than the one they played just three days ago. For the encore, pedal steel guitar maestro Robert Randolph joined the band for a funky, groovy "That's What Love Will Make You Do" before burning the house down with an explosive "One Way Out."

Another great show from the best live band in the land!

Another batch from this weekend, hot off the presses!

THURSDAY MARCH 17TH

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The luck of the Irish was with the ABB for this show.

The Allman Brothers Band welcomed Steely Dan lead singer Donald Fagen for the first time at this show, and Fagen added soulful vocals to Bob Dylan's "Down Along The Cove" and the Grateful Dead classic "Shakedown Street." Add in the first "Who To Believe" of this Beacon run, plus a ripping "Kind Of Bird," and the first set alone was a full night of music!

The ABB kicked off the second set with a dreamy "Ain't Wastin' Time No More" before getting bluesy with "Statesboro Blues" and going jazzy on "Desdemona." The parade of special guests continued when Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford, and Latin percussionist Bobby Allende joined in on "Born Under A Bad Sign" and "The Same Thing." Anybody who saw Whitford at Warren's Christmas Jam knows he can jam, and he really rips it up on these classic blues tunes!

An extended version of "No One To Run With" came next, with the "JaMaBuBu" drum segment in the middle, an unusual place for it. For the encore, Whitford, bassists Lincoln Schleifer, and original Meters guitarist Leo Nocentelli helped turn "Southbound" into a guitar orgy of epic proportions! The guests really added a lot to this show.

FRIDAY MARCH 18TH

The second Friday of the 2011 Beacon run was full of hot jams, bluesy flavor, and two very special guests.

After opening with "Don't Want You No More>It's Not My Cross To Bear," the band settled into a bluesy groove with "Done Somebody Wrong" and "Blind Willie McTell." Midway through the first set, the lovely and talented Susan Tedeschi Trucks took the stage, adding her soulful vocals and ripping guitar leads to the ABB's potent brew. After a great version of Delaney and Bonnie's "Coming Home" Susan and Derek gave a preview of one of the songs on their upcoming album, "That Did It."

No sooner had Susan left the stage to great applause than legendary jazz guitarist John Scofield joined the ABB. From his days with Miles Davis onward, Scofield has been a highly respected musician, and he lived up to his legend at this show. His bluesy riffs perfectly fit Dylan's "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry," but when he got to step out on "Liz Reed" he was really in his element. That would close the first set, but Scofield would be back.

A potent "Dreams" kicked off the second set in style, and a bluesy combo of "Come On In My Kitchen" and "44 Blues" was a highlight. Just when you thought Scofield was done for the night, he came back on stage for an epic, extended "Mountain Jam"! Warren and Derek have both played with Scofield in the past--he played on and co-wrote "Sco-Mule" with Gov't Mule, for example--and the interplay between all three guitarists here was mesmerizing.

Add in a scorching "One Way Out" encore, with both Susan and Junior Mack from Jaimoe's Jasssz Band tearing it up on guitar, and you have another great night of music at the Beacon!

SATURDAY MARCH 19TH

The Allman Brothers Band closed out the second weekend of the 2011 Beacon run with a well-played, diverse show that had something for everyone. You could almost say this show had three sets: The first set, a mellow/bluesy second set featuring Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton of Cowboy, and a jamming third set.

The first set kicked off with the powerful combo of "Hot'Lanta" and "Statesboro Blues." The multi-tiered jams in "Rockin' Horse" make it one of the most adventurous and dynamic songs the ABB play, and this is no exception. After a blast of the blues with "Stormy Monday," with Gregg singing with authority, Derek's mysterious new instrumental "Bag End" hypnotized the crowd. Warren's souflul "River's Gonna Rise" and an explosive "Every Hungry WOman" capped off a tight first set.

Next came an extended mellow interlude that was like a set in itself. Gregg held the crowd in the palm of his hand for "Melissa," and then growled out the blues on "Can't Be Satisfied" from his recent solo album. Scotty Boyer and Tommy Talton, who backed Gregg on his legendary On Tour album, then joined the ABB for beautiful renditions of "Please Be With Me" and "All My Friends." Tommy stayed on stage for a bluesy "Hoochie Coochie Man," wrapping up the Cowboy mini-set in style.

The "third set" began next as the band took off on an epic "Dreams," with Warren taking the main slide solo on a Gibson Les Paul that once belonged to Duane Allman. Warren did Duane proud on this one! "Revival" was jammed out to the extreme, with the "JaMaBuBu" drum/bass segment in the middle, before returing to a joyous conclusion.

This show also marked the first "Whipping Post" encore of the 2011 Beacon run, and this version is fierce and takes no prisoners!

Can you say if or do you know if there be a West's Best or some other kinds of the 6 best or 10 best like we get with summer tours? Just interested. Gonna be some very hard choices if I have to get the whole run, I'll miss the wife

I honestly don't know if we'll have Jaimoe's dedication to Red Dog on the CD from 3/11. We don't have the CDs in stock yet here in Atlanta. Anybody get the Instant Live at the show? If so, was Jaimoe's dedication on it? That is probably your answer, Wayne.

We've never really done a "6 Pack" type thing for the Beacon, but it's worth considering. The band has already laid down some pretty great shows, and there are still 5 to go, so it's not hard to imagine 6 Beacon shows being worthy of inclusion in such a set. Hmm....

Thanks for the interest! I for one am glad to see the ABB still playing at such a high level.

So am I...and with only a small chance of a southern run, I'm afraid that I will again not get to see the band....so I'll have to do the next best thing...get the shows. A West's Best or a Beacon Bundle might be a nice sell....for fans and the Band. We southerners get a little less music for a little less money...everyone wins. Just food for thought. Thanks for just the consideration.
