Some proceeds will benefit The Big House in Macon

The illustrious career of The Allman Brothers Band will be celebrated in March with a 50th anniversary bash in New York.

Dubbed, “The Brothers – Celebrating 50 Years of the music of The Allman Brothers Band,” the concert will take place at Madison Square Garden March 10 with the remaining members of ABB – Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge and Marc Quinones. They’ll be joined by Duane Trucks, Reese Wynans and Chuck Leavell.

Pre-sale tickets will be available Jan. 7, with the public on-sale starting Jan. 10 via ticketmaster.com. Portions of the proceeds will benefit The Big House, the ABB museum in Macon.

The show will mark the first time in more than five years that the musicians will perform their iconic hits together and the first time since the passing of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks.

While most consider the band’s roots to be Macon, Derek Trucks says that New York – home to ABB’s renowned Beacon Theatre residencies and site of their 1971 live album, “Fillmore East” – has always been a “spiritual home” for the band.

The Allman Brothers Band – the 2003 iteration with Gregg Allman, Jaimoe, Butch Trucks, Haynes, Quinones, Burbridge and Derek Trucks – played its last live performance at Beacon in October 2014.
