Allman Brothers Band Members Reuniting for 50th Anniversary Tribute Show
The 50th anniversary of the Allman Brothers Band will be honored in grand fashion at Madison Square Garden in March.
Per Rolling Stone, the show will take place at MSG on March 10. Confirmed for the performance is drummer Jaimoe Johanson, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones. Also confirmed for the show is drummer Duane Trucks, organist Reese Wynans and pianist Chuck Leavell.
Of the MSG show, Haynes told Rolling Stone, “It’s a way of honoring 50 years of the band and honoring Duane [Allman], Gregg [Allman], Berry [Oakley] and Butch [Trucks] and the music they created. That music deserves a 50th anniversary celebration. Most rock bands never thought they’d even see their 50th anniversary. And, of course, this one didn’t. So in a way, this brings some sort of closure.”
Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public on January 10 at Ticketmaster, while presales begin on January 7.
