Bob Dylan Announces Mini-Residency at NYC’s Beacon Theatre
WROR

Bob Dylan is taking up a short residency at the Beacon Theatre in New York City as part of his fall North American tour.

Dylan will perform five shows -- November 20-22 and 24-25 -- at the Beacon, which was the site of annual month-long residencies by the Allman Brothers band and where the Rolling Stones' filmed the Martin Scorsese-directed Shine A Light concert film.

The Beacon shows will also feature Mavis Staples, who's opening most of the shows on the tour. The trek kicked off October 13 in Funner, California.

Ya think?
I believe you are correct Smoke, these will quite special, no matter how it turns out.
And here's some other reasons why...

I've alluded to this before…with no bites…
…not many Allman Brothers fans here maybe, I don’t know?
But, either way, check this out.

1. The Allmans used to "own" the Beacon with annual residencies, since 1989, and fantastic ever-changing shows night-after-night.

2. The Allmans recorded their first song on their first album, covering a Muddy Waters’ cover of a tune called:
Trouble No More

3. "Trouble No More" is a variation of "Someday Baby Blues," recorded by Sleepy John Estes in 1935.

4. Bob utilized it in 2006, remember Someday Baby?

5. Trouble No More was the last song of the last show the Allmans did at their "Farewell Shows" at The BEACON Theatre in 2014.
Then Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks departed.
I was so very fortunate to meet Gregg Allman at a soundcheck I snuck into after that (yes, Chester, "snuck into").

6. Gregg kept touring until he just couldn't.

7. Gregg Allman died this year, 2017.

8. Bob has just released a kick-ass boxed set entitled:
Trouble No More

9. A few weeks later here comes Bob with a Mini-Residency to close the Fall Leg of the 2017 Tour.

Too many meteors crossing paths to keep up with. There is a lot to process.
Regardless how the Bob shows go at the Beacon, there is MUCH significant energy flowing through them. So have fun!

Here is a Rolling Stone article referencing item #5, above, with a video at the end.

Flashback: The Allman Brothers' Last Jam at 2014 Farewell Gig
The Allman Brothers Band wrap up 2014 farewell concert with a cover of the Muddy Waters classic "Trouble No More" at New York's Beacon Theater.
By Andy Greene - May 30, 2017 – Rolling Stone

The Allman Brothers Band could have wrapped up their farewell concert with any number of songs. They could have gone with an epic, jammed-out "Whipping Post," which they did for the second last song at New York's Beacon Theater on October 28th, 2014. They could have gone with a classic like "Mountain Jam," "Midnight Rider" or "Melissa," but they did those earlier in the night during the four hour blowout. Instead, they went with Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More," from their first side of their 1969 debut LP. An emotional Gregg Allman told the crowd that night it was the first song played at the group's first rehearsal. "This was at about 3:30 in the afternoon, on March 26th, 1969," he said. "Never did I have any idea it would come to this."

It came to this after 45 amazing years that saw more tragedy and heartbreak than just about any group in rock history. They endured the deaths of guitarist Duane Allman and bassist Berry Oakley in separate motorcycle accidents just a few years after the group began, two breakups, a bitter split with founding guitarist Dickey Betts after years of acrimony and numerous health problems for Gregg Allman that threatened their existence time and time again. Throughout it all they kept gigging, helped in no small part by the addition of guitarists Warren Haynes in 1989 and guitarist Derek Trucks (nephew of drummer Butch Trucks) a decade later.

When the time came to call it quits in 2014 there was no other place to end it than the Beacon Theater. They first played a residency at the Upper West Side theater in 1989 and three years later they turned it into an annual tradition. Fans from around the country descended on New York City every March for a chance to catch the shows, which featured a steady stream of surprise guest stars, amazing covers and unforgettable nights.

Demand for tickets was never higher than the October 28th, 2014 show. Days after it ended, Derek Trucks told Rolling Stone they ended at the right time. "If we'd gone on much longer, we wouldn't have been able to summon that [last] show," he said. "Almost any other time there's a huge send-off, it's a star-studded thing. This was just the band showing up and playing, the way they always did. There's something honest and proud, dignified and beautiful about the way it ended."

From nearly the minute it ended rumors began spreading that the band was going to reform. "I would never rule anything out," Haynes told Rolling Stone in 2015. "There's no talk of that, but you know, I think the door's always open." That door began closing in January 2017 when Butch Trucks committed suicide, and it permanently closed on May 27th 2017 when Gregg Allman died after a long battle with liver cancer. Thankfully, the group had the opportunity to meticulously plan their final show and go out on an incredibly high note.

This article contained a link to the last song of the Farewell, Trouble No More which can be found with this article at:
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... ig-w484734


This next vid link includes the group finishing the last few licks of Whipping Post and Gregg speaking at around 3:30 and then introducing and playing an epic rendition of "Trouble No More" before taking their final bows at New York's Beacon Theater.

Going tonight. A surprise would be amazing - but I'm not counting on it. Will keep an eye on the setlists this week though; on the off chance they change at all I might try to snag a Saturday ticket too.

I was tempted to get a last minute ticket, but looks like very little is available. Should be a packed and adoring house. I will be there on Fri and Sat though! Enjoy tonight.

Beautiful theater, can’t wait for the show to begin.

Should I call for a duet with Mavis - like with Clydie King - of Abraham, Martin, and John?

I suppose I will have to be content with the set. Very much looking forward the to new arrangements. First concert on this tour.
