I'm with BigV. This is Great Southern, a band I was never overly impressed with, playing those tunes the same
way as before. Dickey doesn't deviate too much from his standard set-list. And yes, they'll now be playing some
Gregg tunes....It's a stretch for Mike Kach to take on vocal duties on the new Gregg songs. He's not bad, and
nobody is Gregg....I'm rationalizing why I wouldn't pay $150 Marshall Tucker is ....not nearly as good as the
Outlaws. Doug Grey's voice is weak....MTB is just a filler for adding an attraction to sell a few Tix. Devon and Duane
will be fantastic. And remember, it's the promoter charging these prices and selecting the acts....not the band.
I too hope it is a sell out crowd and folks have a great time.

I don't get Marshall Tucker as part of this bill. This is NOT the MTB many of us remember, not even close. Yes, Doug Gray is there but he is the only one and he had serious voice problems and really, can't sing. So I don't know what they could possibly bring to the table. I expect Devon to play with Dickey (I am surmising), and his band with Duane Betts will be fun.

I don't think Dickey playing is some sort of new, different dealio for him (i.e. playing from his solo catalogue). I have a feeling this is a test drive, this run of shows--for himself (can he still do it?) and to see what kind of response he gets. So yeah, I'd expect he'll stick to basics to start. I saw his "Great American Music show" way back when, and that would be fun to see something similar but I doubt it this time around.

Candidly, I am surprised they even got to the Beacon but it is one show. I hope it sells well and inspires Dickey to do what he does so well....

Looks like the show is about 1/2 sold

I took the koolaid for $90 Orchestra Row T

Kinda like the Seinfeld where Elaine decides to get married: "What have I got to lose. Its 2:00AM and I'm at a cockfight"

Might suck; might get cancelled. But I just want to feel even 10Pct of the old March rush through my veins. Better than my other options even if it cost me a few Benjamins

I just shelled out for Orch Row C. Hoping for some of the Ol Beacon Magic. Been 4 years since I was inside the joint, it will feel good to be back. Opportunities to see original members are dwindling. What the hell else I got to do on a Wednesday night? NCIS Toledo? Bring on the music. Fingers still crossed for a 50th Anniversary Something-er-Other next year at the Beacon or Fox or _____.

Meet & greet apparently sold out. Lot of money to shell out for an often surly Dickey

I'm getting closer, have to figure out some logistics.

I saw MTB several years ago and I felt bad for Doug. He has undergone yet another surgery on his vocal chords since I saw them last, I'm not sure if any improvement has been found there. As someone who loved the 1970s MTB and still do to this day, what I saw in person just made me sad. Chris Hicks on guitar and occasional vocals is worthy of mention, maybe Doug has regained some of his range, but I doubt it.

Still, with the Devon and Duane band and seeing Dickey's band too, it is something I can justify. To me, I welcome Dickey doing alot of ABB material, it is kind of like one last ride with someone that helped write and forge those songs. This is assuming the show actually happens, just based off of history. I will be buying flight insurance probably, something I have never done.

$90 isn't that bad. I've paid more for less. The Beacon is a special place and Dickey is a special musician.

Hey folks, long time since I have stopped in here. Hope everyone is well.

I grabbed tix of course . Any Allman Beacon related show gets my blood flowing. Hoping things go really well that night and the house is packed. Next day is Peachfest so its a great way to start 5 days of music!

Look forward to seeing some of the fine extended family once again in NYC and the Church that is the Beacon theatre to listen to the man in the hat once again!


Yes Beacon fever is a great feeling! March madness in July.....LOL

Couldn't do the Beacon because it's a weeknight,but I have 2 in the loge for the St. George !
I've been very critical of Dickey over the past 10 years or so and am hoping that he has the fire back !

$300 at the Beacon? I don't know about that one.

US $50.00 - US $300.00
US $50.00
US $300.00




Tickets on sale now at TM: $150 for Orchestra and first two rows of the Loge... the $300 must be a VIP or meet and greet package.


It was meet and greet that was $300 and then of course they have the plats currently priced at $260ish. Frankly even the $150 is a bit much from my perspective.



The $150 tickets run to $195 with TM fees. That's just too much for me for this show. I am sure the scalpers gobbled up a lot of the tickets, but in general, the show seems to have sold pretty well.

My laptop is not working right now and I don't know how to link with this Samsung phone. If anyone can link it, there is a video of Dickey rehearsing alone on Duane Betts Facebook page. It seem obvious to me Dickey didn't know he was being recorded.

Dickey is doing this as a gift to the people.He damn sho don't need the money.Add to that the man has been retired for 3 years,had health issue's,some very serious.And this ain't the place to beat my gum's about what.I will say the man is damn near 75,and like us all who have some age on our hide,is not the player he once was.I read this crap about he's just got a garage/bar band behind him.Man that is some rude,off the wall crap to be spewing here.Betts loves the cats in his band ,and they are damn good players and friends as well to him.So if your expecting the man to have the fire under him as some have said,and put on a show to the like's of the 70's,80's etc,well then keep your as* home.However if you wanna come and see a legendary member of the best damn band to ever walk this planet play for the people the last time,then come to Macon the 17'th.Otherwise please STFU with this grade school jive of holding the man under a microscope slide and jaw jacking about what he should and should not do,who he should have in his band,how he should play and what etc etc etc etc.Gimmie a damn break!
Oh and i can't omit the whining of ticket prices etc as well.Nobody is breaking anyone's leg to buy a ticket and go.So once again,ya got issue's etc with the gig,DON'T GO! Oh that's right,ya can't ,it's SOLD OUT!

The 8 shows Dickey is giving us are a gift . No need to analyze or dissect who he should play with or what he should play.
But I do have an idea : How about Dickey's band along with Warren and Matt from the original Dickey Betts Band play some of the cuts off Pattern Disruptive at Peachfest ? Loverman, Duane's Tune , Rock Bottom and The Blues Ain't Nothin'.
It's a going to be a fun summer with Dickey playing for us again.
