I guess it means no fall tour or final show in Atlanta or Georgia.

That is very disappointing news for Allman Brothers fans. They have know all year and that is the best they could come up with. We all have to hope for webcasts somehow.

I would have hoped that the ABB would have played a few more shows in the south before they ended. Instead of adding two more shows at the Beacon, they could have done those shows in the south. I enjoyed the Fox run years ago, and I have always waited to see them return to the Fox. I wanted them to do a Fox run with the final performance in Macon.

Glad to have an answer as to how this thing is going to end. Certainly disappointed there will be no "victory lap" but glad they are not going to further drag this thing out with more indecision

I think it is pretty easy to see why Warren and Derek are (already have?) moving on. I always hear people complain about bands cashing in on a fake farewell tour. We'll, this is certainly a new twist: this band has failed to cash in on a real farewell tour! And to add further irony, this might be the first instance where a majority if fans are disappointed by that failure.

I wish em the best, thanks for the memories and thanks for the closure

Pretty damn sorry of them to not have a little 3 week tour to say goodbye to all the cities that have supported them all these years. Particularly with the whole month of October available to tour. I am beyond disappointed. Don't care if they throw together some band next March. With Derek and Warren leaving that is the end of the ABB as we know it and I think it is shameful to not go see the faithful in the southeast. This sums it up best for me:

Just hope they will do right by the fans and offer a presale through the HTW.

From the homepage...

Here is the bandís final itinerary:

DATE: CITY: VENUE:

Sun 6/8 Hunter Mountain, NY Mountain Jam
Thu-Sun 8/14-17 Scranton, PA Peach Fest
Sun 9/7 Arrington, VA Lockní Music Fest
Tues 10/21 New York, NY Beacon Theatre (tickets for March 25 honored)
Weds 10/22 New York, NY Beacon Theatre (tickets for March 26 honored)
Fri 10/24 New York, NY Beacon Theatre (tickets for March 28 honored)
Sat 10/25 New York, NY Beacon Theatre (tickets for March 29 honored)
Mon 10/27 New York, NY Beacon Theatre
Tues 10/28 New York, NY Beacon Theatre

I was hoping for the usual summer dates in the New England area or maybe a final run at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. Looks like I'll have to travel a bit further to see them one more time, this last time around, provided I can get a ticket at face value. I refuse to line the pockets of greedy scalpers/ticket agencies under any circumstances.

Disappointed to not have a final chance to see them nearby (and for friends that had final show tix that are no longer final). Still, as flaky as the ABB has been, I give them some credit for honoring commitments!

Hey! Look at the good news - TWO Beacon runs in one year!

With two months left in the calendar year, another show or two (Warren's Christmas jam? NYE?) could be slipped in. Stay tuned ... in whatever key you choose.

Wow, and I thought they couldn't screw up planning any worse than 2009-2010 (from an Atlantan/Georgian perspective anyway). From the way the year started off, with the announcements by DT/WH and the release of the live CD and re-release of Great Woods properly done on DVD - I thought they were going to go out with a bit of a bang. Perhaps not a huge 2- or 3-leg summer tour like in 2009, but at least a somewhat lengthy run hitting the major shed markets with a handful of theatre runs thrown in for good measure. A way to say thank you and farewell to the fans, as well as (and let's be honest here) one last cash grab from the major markets.

I do think it's appropriate in many ways to finish off at the Beacon, but not like this. Pathetic.

And notice they say "final plans" for the "Allman Brothers Band"? Not the final plans for the ABB version featuring Derek & Warren. Probably reading too much into it though.

I'm very disappointed in this. I was hoping for something in the South. Oh well.

As I posted on facebook, this organization has turned into one huge clusterf#ck.

You'd think after 45 years they could get their sh!t together for one decent farewell tour.

Wott garbage.

I'm glad they've finally announced the dates and I'll see if it makes sense to try for one more show. It sucks that they couldn't do a real tour this year and I expect that's a real disappointment to the band as well.

I suspect that the ABB dates were slimed down because of Derek's desire to build his band. If Derek is so concerned with the legacy of the band, why not scale his band down and focus on the ABB in its final year or two? Derek contradicts himself in many articles. In one article or interview he talks about how he admires those musicians that play until their 80s, and he says he will do the same thing. In another article, for this article, Derek does not want the see the ABB fade away like some athlete. With Derek's chain of thought, BB King, Johnny Winter, and the Rolling Stones should have retired years ago. The bottom line is Derek wants to focus on his band to build his legacy and wealth and the ABB legacy is second to that desire. I hope the ABB continues on towards its 50th with another great guitar player. IMHO

I just read Derek's interview where he mentions letting everyone know the 45th anniversary would be IT several years ago and it strikes me as what a total disaster this year really is. They have known this was coming for YEARS according to Derek and did absolutely ZERO to prepare for or commemorate the end. That is a pretty shocking display of indifference/ineptitude.

I think they probably would have played more dates than this if not for Gregg's health and the Midnight Rider lawsuit. Everything has been in chaos this year for the ABB and TTB and the Mule have gone on scheduling dates because nobody knew what was going to happen with the ABB.

He's been doing that for years. And if you have a new band you can't necessarily do that. You might lose momentum and not be able to get it back.

I think you have to take that in context of the ABB: a band that doesn't produce new material and spends less and less time together. That makes it hard to play your best. He hasn't suggested the musicians retire. He's talked about honoring the ABB legacy.

The Stones turned into an ATM decades ago. I don't think anybody's kidding themselves about that.

Fortunately it looks like they're not going to make that mistake, which is a relief.

To be honest, I don't even know from day to day what is going on. Some people say they are breaking up, some say they are not. Gregg says they're just replacing Derek. Who the hell knows anymore. It just seems like a rudder-less, captain-less ship.

Everyone's schedule is clear for October. If you think the Allman's aren't getting in a mini farewell tour because of either Derek and Warren, I believe you are sorely mistaken. Both those guys said they were looking forward to this last year with a renewed vigor and a desire to help the band go out on top. Judging from interviews w/ Warren he was eagerly awaiting word when the band would let them know when the replacement dates and tour would be. IMO blame falls on Gregg, Butch, and Jamioe and whoever else is responsible for "managing" this train wreck. This sh*t is beyond pathetic.

Even if you don't want to hit all the normal places at least give us a couple of shows in Atlanta. That allows folks from the southeast two opportunities to see them. Folks in the northeast are getting another two opportunities on top of all the chances they had to see them in March. Doesn't have to be the Fox. Back to back nights at any decent sized venue in Atlanta, don't tell me they couldn't get that scheduled. I'm pretty f'ing pissed and disappointed. Very sorry way to treat faithful fans and one hell of a way to cr*p on the legacy of what use to be one of the hardest touring bands out there. Horsesh*t.

As much as I love all three, I agree with that idea.

I think Derek thinks he personally might be able to play into his 80s. I also think Derek thinks Gregg, Butch, and Jaimoe will not be able to play into their 80s. There have been several points in the last few years where I wasn't convinced Gregg was going to last the year alive let alone playing shows. Butch is a power drummer for the most part and that frankly is not a skill that ages well. We know the health issues Jaimoe has had. The band is still incredible - but I feel like the drumming has been declining pretty steadily over the last number of years - and that's completely understandable. I don't think Derek wants the ABB to continue if the original members are going to be shells of themselves - and while we're not there yet - you don't have to squint too far into the distance to see it coming I'm afraid.
