Allman Brothers Band Plays Final Show Ever, Tonight at the Beacon Theatre

Allman Brothers Band; Legacy RecordingsIt’s the end of a rock and roll era tonight, when the Allman Brothers Band play not only the final show of their annual Beacon Theatre residency in New York City, but the final show of their storied career.

The band announced the news last June, bringing to an end to speculation about whether the Allmans would continue following the departure of guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, who revealed earlier this year that they’ll be exiting the band before year’s end.

There was speculation following the initial announcement that the Allman Brothers might record one more album before they disband, a follow-up to 2003’s studio effort Hittin’ the Note.  Haynes told ABC News Radio in June that while he wouldn’t stand in the way of a final album, he didn’t really see it happening.

“It’s been not so easy getting everybody on the same page for that, and to agree that making a record is the right thing to do, especially under the present circumstances,” said Haynes. “But I would obviously enjoy making another record if we made the decision to do that.  At this point, I don’t really see it happening, but I’m not standing in the way of it.”

Butch Trucks shares that sentiment, also telling ABC News Radio, “This band has been g*damned good and there’s a lot of good songwriting abilities in it, and we really haven’t done that much.  So, yeah, I am a little disappointed if we can’t get out another record.” 

The Allman Brothers Band was formed in 1969 by brothers Gregg and Duane Allman.  With Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allmans arguably defined Southern rock for the world, earning multiple gold and platinum albums along the way and earning induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.  Of the original lineup, only singer and guitarist Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks, and drummer Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson remain.
