The Allman Brothers Band: 2012 Beacon Theatre Dates

SOURCE: Published: 2012-01-03

The Allman Brothers Band are getting set to honor the 40th anniversary of their iconic 1972 live album Eat A Peach in a big way: they're hailing 2012 as “The Year of the Peach."

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will start the year with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, which “honors performers who have made contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording." That event will take place Saturday, February 11 during Grammy Week in Los Angeles and the group will be mentioned on the Sunday, February 12 national TV broadcast.

Soon after the Grammy Awards, the band will launch their annual residency at New York City's Beacon Theatre, where they will perform 10 shows beginning Friday, March 9 (see full itinerary below). Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday, January 6.

In April, the group returns to Live Oak, FL, where they will host their 8th annual Wanee Festival on April 19-21. The full line-up for the three-day festival has yet to be confirmed but previous artists have included Widespread Panic, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Steve Miller, the Black Keys, O.A.R., Levon Helm, Buddy Guy, Little Feat, Bob Weir, Stephen Stills, Gov't Mule and the Derek Trucks Band.
