Tonight will be the final performance of the Allman Brothers Band. It ends a run of 45 years.
The band survived the deaths of Duane Allman, one of the greatest guitarists in rock history and their Bass player, Berry Oakley. Both were killed in motorcycle accidents one year apart. t
They continued on when Dickey Betts left the band.
However when the current guitarists, Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes decided to leave to concentrate on their own bands, Gregg Allman made the decision to call it a day.
Tonight’s final show will be at the Beacon Theater, in New York City. It’s a venue where the band has had a long run of sold out shows.
It’s been an incredible career for these guys. Any list of the greatest American bands would have them right near the top.
