For nearly 25 years, traveling to New York’s Beacon Theatre to see The Allman Brothers Band play a stretch of high-spirited live shows has become a rite of passage for fans old and new. What began as a daring ten-night run at the acclaimed venue is now a symbiotic relationship between a band, a venue and a devoted fan base, the likes of which are virtually unprecedented in rock and roll history.
Play All Night: Live At The Beacon Theater 1992, is a new two-disc set showcasing The Allman Brothers Band’s very first time playing such an extended run at the Beacon. In the spirit of The Allmans’ iconic 1971 live album At Fillmore East, Play All Night showcases Allman, Betts, Trucks, Jaimoe, Haynes, Woody and Quinones taking the Beacon’s stage by storm. Through their most-requested songs, deep cuts and new favorites, the Allmans expertly showcase that unmistakable raw energy - at once practiced and spontaneous - that still make them one of the most beloved live acts.
Play All Night features liner notes by John Lynskey, editor of the official ABB magazine Hittin’ The Note, and onstage photos by longtime band photographer Kirk West, to further immerse audiences into the story behind these captivating sets.
Whether you’ve never experienced the magic of The Allman Brothers Band at the Beacon Theater or you’re eagerly planning for next year’s shows, Play All Night is a “first time” you’ll want to re-live over and over again.
