January 2, 2014. The Allman Brothers Band just announced the dates for their 2014 residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre, referred to as “March Madness” by their fans. So far, ten concerts have been announced, kicking off March 7. The band has played the venue more than 220 times since starting their annual residency at the venue in 1989.
One of their earliest runs of shows at the Beacon will be the focus of the upcoming Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theatre 1992, a 2 CD set. Another archival Allmans release will be a reissue of the long out of print Live At Great Woods on DVD, filmed in 1991. The video, long requested by fans, won’t include interviews edited into the main feature, as they were in the original version of the release.
Finally, the band will reach into the vaults for Boston Common 8/17/71, recorded ten weeks before the death of original guitarist Duane Allman.
