Live at the Fillmore: Allman Brothers Band Birthday Tribute to Gregg Allman - The Loft at City Winery
December 08, 2018 - New York

A FEW WORDS FROM LOU MARESCA, LIVE AT THE FILLMORE'S FOUNDER: The original Allman Brothers Band performed regularly at New York's Fillmore East Auditorium run by legendary promoter Bill Graham and often referred to as the 'church of rock and roll.' The Allman Brothers Band played often enough at Fillmore East to be called 'Bill Graham's house band.' It was here and at other New York metropolitan area venues like Passaic New Jersey's Central and Capital Theaters, New York's Central Park's Schaefer Summer Concert Series where I and other members of LIVE AT THE FILLMORE first heard the Allman Brothers Band perform beginning in 1970. On June 26, 1971 I was at Fillmore East for the Saturday night late show, the last public concert at Fillmore East, the one the ABB band calls 'THE SHOW,' the one they feel is the greatest performance they ever gave. I've never heard them or any other band give a better performance before or since. Sadly, the next time I heard the band was a few months later at New York's Academy of Music.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance). It's 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy.
