WATCH: The Brothers celebrate 50 years of The Allmans at Madison Square Garden

live 20/03/2020

The surviving members of the last Allman Brothers Band lineup reunited last night for a show at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York.

Playing under the name 'The Brothers' included guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, drummer Jaimoe Johanson, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones, playing a 24-song set spanning the Allmans' entire career. 

This was the first show in over five years, since the band's final show at New York's Beacon Theatre on October 28, 2014, and three years after the death of founder member Gregg Allman.

Included in the setlist were classics like Statesboro Blues, Black Hearted Woman, Jessica, Mountain Jam, In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed and Whipping Post, with the band joined for ten songs by keyboardist Chuck Leavell, a member of The Allman Brothers Band from 1972 until 1976. You can see the full setlist below, and watch a chunk of the concert in the video above. 

The release of the band's Trouble No More: 50th Anniversary Collection was announced back in January - a multi-disc compilation that celebrates the band. The 10LP, 61-song set produced by Allman Brothers historians and aficionados Bill Levenson, John Lynskey and Kirk West, is available now.
