The Allman Brothers Band played in New York last Thursday at the United Palace Theater. The seven-piece band’s set lasted more than three hours.
Frontman Gregg Allman lead the group through such classics as “Jessica” and “Melissa,” along with covers of Van Morrison‘s “And It Stoned Me” and the 1974 Michael Price and Dan Walsh hit, “Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City.” The Allman Brothers, who are used to playing in NYC this time of year as part of an annual two-week stint at the Beacon Theater, found themselves in an unusual venue this year. Due to scheduling issues, the two-week residency was moved from the Beacon Theater to United Palace Theater.
The band played two long sets and a three-song encore, closing the night with the classic tune “One Way Out.”
