This show was just OK for me. The seats were good, although still overpriced. The Doobie Brothers were good, but it was still light out when they started playing and it was kind of a boring performance. Between the two bands, there were only a few tunes I really got into. The Allman Brothers played well and the guest appearance by Tom Petty was cool, but I guess I just wasn't in much of a "jam band mood" for this show.
<p>Classic rock legends, The Allman Brothers Band and The Doobie Brothers co-headline the Greek Theatre.
Celebrating their 40th anniversary, The Allman Brothers Band will be embarking on a U.S. tour billed as “40 Years of Highs & Lows.” Honorees of Billboard magazine’s “Legends of Live” award this past November, the band lived up to that title during a recent show at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The New York Times said of that performance, “The first half of the show was an affirmation of bedrock values, with some of the sturdiest songs from the Duane Allman era: “Statesboro Blues,” “Revival,” “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin,’ ” “Done Somebody Wrong.” Gregg Allman was in strong vocal form, and the rhythm section (also with the bassist Oteil Burbridge and the percussionist Marc Quiñones) chugged along expertly. The set kept gathering steam as it went on…”
As one of the most popular Californian pop/rock bands of the '70s, the Doobie Brothers have evolved from a mellow, post-hippie boogie band to a slick, soul-inflected pop band. Along the way, the band has accumulated multiple Grammy awards, numerous gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums in the U.S. Their string of radio hits include, "Listen to the Music," "Black Water," "China Grove,” “Long Train Running” and Takin’ It To The Streets.” In between tour dates, the Doobie Brothers can be found in the studio mixing their upcoming full-length album.</p>
