Allman Brothers Band
Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre
Aug. 3, 2012
Outdoor shows at venues rarely go past 11 p.m. due to the threat of hefty fines. So, maybe it was a thanks to fans who braved the night's sudden rains or perhaps the band was just enjoying the performance but, either way, the Allman Brothers Band threw caution to the wind and let its Aug. 3 concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre roll on until 11:20 p.m.
The band hit the ground running early with the trio of "Statesboro Blues," "One Way Out" and "Midnight Rider" before letting the groove really sink in with a stellar "Worried Down with the Blues" featuring the soulful vocals of Haynes and bolstered by the slide guitar of Trucks, the percussive backdrop of Butch Trucks, Jaimoe Johanson and Marc Quiñones and playful low-end bass of Oteil Burbridge.
Though the band hasn't released a new album in eight years, and could easily "phone-in" a performance (as seen by the hit-after-hit, by-the-book, cliché-of-themselves co-headliner Lynyrd Skynyrd), the members appear as energetic as ever since returning to the road, ignited by the health of Allman, inspired by the guitar interplay of Haynes and Trucks and driven by some fantastic Southern rock.
