Wow - they started with a bang! This was one of the best Allman Brothers Band shows we have seen since the 2009 40th Anniversary Tour! Certainly, the best Beacon opener (other than 2009) in quite a while. Considering that this is the first concert of the run, they have set the bar high, and you just know the music is going to climb to even higher heights from here on in!

Butch had this to say about their 2013 debut:

"Damn. What an opening night. Might be one of our best sets ever. I am very sore today from laying with that much power. Gregg was as spot on as he's been in decades actually pushing us on some of the tunes he use to have trouble with. Life is great and the Beacon seems to be one major hot spot!"

The first set showed the band could bring it like a band in their prime. It featured some very strong classics (including the first Les Bres sandwhich?), played exceptionally well. After laying down a solid foundation of what made them famous, they went out on a limb in the second set and proved they were still capable of experimenting and growing as a group of artists - in ways which would continue to delight us over the course of the run.

Gregg started it off with a soulful version of the Beatles "Rain." Evidently a full band arrangement taken from the stripped down demo version on the Dreams Box Set. Warren broke out the first of two new originals, "Dusk till Dawn" that absolutely captured everyones attention. A beautifully dark, moody composition with a Desdemona-like time change that has quickly become our favorite here at HTN. The band then stunned the audience with a mind melding "Mtn Jam/Hendrix - 1983 (A merman I Should Turn To Be)" combination that closed out the second set.
