Allman Brothers Band announce 2014 Beacon Theatre shows

The Allman Brothers Band have announced their 2014 series of shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

Rolling Stone reports the group will begin a 10-show residency on March 7.

The run includes dates on March 7 - 8, March 11-12, March 14-15, March 18-19 and March 21-22.

Tickets go on sale January 10 at 10 a.m. ET.

Gregg Allman still digs playing the annual series of shows at the legendary New York venue, where they've performed more than 220 times since 1989.

“Spontaneous things still happen," he says. "Going through the motions would be a real bore. I know a band that plays the same songs in the same order, they even say the same shit at the same time every night. But, no, we’re all still real into it.”

"These last few years,” Gregg continues, “we do the Beacon and then we do one month on the road in the summertime and that’s about it. And then everybody goes off to their own respective solo bands. It's getting more seldom that we get together, you know? It makes you really look forward to it.”

The group will release two live albums and a DVD in 2014.

In February, the band’s Allman Brothers Recording Company label dips back into the archives with “Boston Common 8/17/71”, recorded the same year as “At Fillmore East”, and less than three months before Duane Allman’s death. "It is one of the few Duane Allman-era shows that no fan has heard or owns," the band said in a statement.

On February 18th, Epic/Legacy will release a two-CD set “Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theatre 1992”, and “Live at Great Woods”, a live DVD from the band’s Massachusetts show in 1991.
