After a recent tease, it’s been announced that The Brothers – a band comprised of former members of the Allman Brothers Band – will be returning to New York for one night to honor the band’s 50th anniversary. The show will take place on March 10 at Madison Square Garden.

There’s not much that can be written about Derek Trucks that hasn’t been said before ad nauseam. The guy’s just a freak. His skill with a guitar is unparalleled. An underrated part of Trucks’s game, though, is his matured skill as a bandleader. Over the course of the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s November 16 show in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Robinson Center, he put on a mesmerizing guitar clinic. Equally compelling, though, was watching Trucks direct the band sharing the stage with him.
Three weeks from today, the Tedeschi Trucks Band will return to New York City’s Beacon Theatre for the 9th straight year, taking the stage for 6 performances from September through October 5. The band’s tenure at the venue, a tradition steeped in guitarist Derek Trucks’s Allman Brothers Band history has spanned over 30 shows.
This year, the band will have a few supporting acts – Capital Sun Rays (Luther Dickinson, Amy Helm, Birds of Chicago and Grahame Lesh) on October 1 and John Moreland on October 2.
