The Allman Brothers New March Home

It seems that virtually every March the legendary blues-rock band The Allman Brothers have taken a nice and lengthy residency at one of NYC finest concert venues, the Beacon Theater. Not all traditions last however, and seeing as how Cirque du Soleil's new show "Banana Shpeel" will be housed at the Beacon, the Allmans were forced to find a new home for their annual March run. After much deliberation, the group ultimately settled on the controversial United Palace, which is infamous for its echoey acoustics. To this fact, Gregg Allman stated “with our sound system, we’ll make our own damn acoustics.” That being said, the band will likely return to the Beacon in 2011, and we all know just how good they sound in that joint.
Here's a nice video of the Allmans playing the Dead's "Sugaree" with Phil Lesh and Bob Weir
