This was my first show seeing the Bros. I found the setlist, but they didn't list the opening act, which was Marshall Tucker. Actually this was my first ever concert, over protective parents. lol Anyway, my next concert was the Bros in Columbus, Oh at St John's. It got a little crazy when the law kept flipping on the ligths whenever someone would fire up. It seems that the week before they had a small fire at a King Crimson show there. Gregg got really pissed and shouted turn those damn lights off..!!! Better things prevailed and it turned out to be one helluva show. Dickey was especially hittin the note that night. I still remember him getting down on Come and Go Blues. He was playing on his tippy toes..!!!

Thanks for sharing the very cool memory!!
I'll be honest...I can't place my EXACT first ABB show.....I saw ALOT of shows as a child!!
I remember that my parents saw the ABB ALOT when I was a kid without me...they hit the Ludlow Garage in Cincinnati whenever the ABB would play!
I guess the first strong,everlasting ABB show in my brain was seeing them play in Oxford(?Willet Hall?)Woody & Warren were with them....I think it was '94.....it was really amazing!Of course...I loved the vibe...who doesn't...there were so many people dancing on the floor....it was great!
I also remember that I couldn't believe how strong the power was behind the music!
I had always listened to ABB growing up and dug them....but this was different...seeing the ABB live just can't really be explained to the fullest...it's something that you experience down deep in your soul!
And I haven't been the same since!!

Amen to that. I don't know who to explain it either, but I feel the same. I am and have been hooked for 33 years, I missed Duane, but read plenty about him before I got turned on by a buddy who went to those Ludlow shows too. He attended UC and lived in Moscow, Oh.

My mom reckons my first it was 9/21/75 (she's still got stubs). I was born in January of that year, but being the son of huge ABB fans put me at thier shows while still in the womb. She told me she used to plug my ears up real good, and claims I probably attended 40-50 shows before age five. I remember vague circus-like events from that time, but can't remember anything about the music. My first "real" ABB show was July 1, 1989 at the Ballpark in Old Orchard Beach, ME (age 14). I saw my second two days later.

My daughter(30)went to her first Allman Bros show last year in Cleveland. My gf and I flew up to Columbus and hooked up with her the next day in Cleveland. It was a great show by the way.

Friday June 25,1971 the weekend the Fillmore closed. But I don't remember much , it was a mescaline night.

But I do remember my second show, That September The Central (not Capitol) Theater in Passaic, NJ. Cactus opened ,played 90 minutes because Berry was late arriving from Boston. Great Night all around. A month later brother Duane was gone

I was trying to remember the other day when the first show was.. it was at the Macon Coliseum with the original members.. I'm guessing '70-'71. Did anyone else go to that show? We sat behind the stage (not the greatest sound, but we got to see everyone getting on the stage. The girl and boy who were on the cover of Brothers & Sisters were running around on the stage too.
Also went to the Georgia Jam and the show at the Charlotte Speedway '73 (which also had ELP on the bill - the Bros. played right after them).

My first show was the weekend of 7/27-29/73 -- Watkins Glen. A weekend I'll never forget and, I must confess, sort of less for the music than for the scene -- there wasn't an unfriendly soul among the 600,000 there.
Superyankee, that 9/21/75 show was at Boston Garden, no? I was at that one also as well as the Jimmy Carter one two months later down in Providence.

Saturday July 20th, 1974 . . . Knebworth - UK . . . unfortunately this was the first time that they played the UK and so I never had the privilege of seeing Duane and Berry . . . but their spirits were still ther and live on with me to this day

Mine was 8.8.03 in Atlanta. What a show it was with two encores; a rarity. I've since been to 3 more. Best band in the land. Of course y'all already knew that

10/26/91 was my first show also!!!

I'll never forget that night. It was the 1st ever Halloween Ball at Walnut Creek...they had a costume contest & everything. Little Feat opend the show and Warren sat in on "Dixie Chicken!"

Even though it was cold outside...the show was extremely hot!!! A small acoustic set in the middle of the show that was killer! Hell...how many times have you been to an ABB show with a 4 song encore???

SIMPLY AMAZING!!!

Tunney is right...16 years in a row at the same venue and I haven't missed a single one yet. This is also the only time I have ever seen the Brothers from the lawn...after that night, I have to be as close as possible everytime I go.

That night changed my life forever!!!

My first was in the Fall of 1969, a Georgia State concert at Atlanta Municipal Auditorium -- the Brothers opened for Sweetwater. The very next weekend I went to see them play for free at Piedmont Park. Changed my life, it did.

Sweetwater, the infamous 60's group that was supposed to be the next BIG thing, post Woodstock I believe tradegy struck the group and the rest is not history.

Uptown Theatre in Chicago, 1979.

Back up was the Henry Paul Band, right after their Grey Ghost album. They ended with Green Grass and High Tides Forever (he was in the Outlaws).

Allman's were awesome - when they went into Liz Reed, I sat back and relaxed and said this is what I came for.....
