Allman Brothers: I Can't Stand It

The Allman Brothers are out on stage for the first set of their ninth show (out of 15) at the Beacon Theater. Tonight's reappearance of Eric Clapton is all but inevitable, with his guitar rig already setup on stage, but we're left waiting for it to actually happen again. And don't get me wrong, the Brothers sound fantastic. They're clearly feeding off of the anticipatory energy in the room. But, if last night's sit in was any indication of what we're in store for, everyone has EC on their minds.

The majority of songs that one would expect the Brothers and Sir Eric to collaborate on were already played last night, so there is really no telling what we could be in store for in terms of setlist tonight.

The first set went as follows:

Beacon Theatre - NYC, 9th night

Set 1
Little Martha (Oteil alone on bass)
Mountain Jam*
Trouble No More
Midnight Rider
44 Blues (w/ Danny Louis)
Wasted Words
Gambler's Roll
Ain't Wastin' Time No More
Mountain Jam

* w/ Little Martha teases
