Allman Brothers Band Adds Five Beacon Dates

 

The Allman Brothers Band annual residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre just got a little longer, with five additional shows (March 21, 22, 24, 25, and 26) now added to the eight previously announced (March 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, and 19) performances.

The band has performed multi-night residencies in New York City since 1989, and this year’s run will bring the total number of career performances at The Beacon to 200. For the 2011 shows, the group expects to welcome special guest musicians and will also celebrate the 40th anniversary of At Fillmore East, their iconic live album. Cited by Rolling Stone magazine as #49 of the 500 Greatest Albums of all Time, At Fillmore East was recorded March 12-13, 1971 and was chosen by the Library of Congress to be included in the National Recording Registry.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2009 with a 15-show run at the Beacon that included special guests Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Trey Anastasio, Billy Gibbons, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh. Learn more at allmanbrothersband.com.
