Madison Square Garden in New York City will be the place to be on March 10 for fans of The Allman Brothers Band, the iconic and celebrated Southern rock band formed in 1969 by brothers Duane and Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson.

That’s the date of a special concert commemorating five decades of the band’s music, and The Brothers: Celebrating 50 Years of the Allman Brothers Band is a truly once-in-a-lifetime event, produced by Live Nation.

Via the news release:

It notably marks the first time in more than five years that these legendary players will be together on stage to perform their iconic hits, and the first time since the passing of founding members Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks.

More on the event and what makes it a truly special moment in the band’s heralded career:

Joining The Brothers for the 3/10/20 event will be keyboardist Reese Wynans (who played in the Second Coming with future ABB founding members Dickey Betts and Berry Oakley, and was a part of the early 1969 jam sessions which led to the formation of ABB) and Duane Trucks, Derek’s brother (and current drummer for Widespread Panic). Chuck Leavell joined ABB in 1972 (following Duane Allman’s passing) and played with the group until a hiatus in 1976; he’s been with the Rolling Stones since 1981.

Portions of the proceeds will benefit The Big House in Macon, GA which was the band’s home from 1970-1973 and now serves as their official museum.
