We’re little more than a month away from the Allman Brothers Band 40th Anniversary run at New York City’s newly renovated Beacon Theatre and we’ve got some good news for those of you who can’t make it into the Big Apple for the festivities. The band will be webcasting every Beacon show through drummer Butch Trucks’ Moogis.com website. You’ll need to be a Moogis subscriber which costs just $100 for six months worth of access until 02/15/2009 when the price goes up to a still reasonable $125.
The Allmans discussed streaming all of their 2007 Beacon run shows through Moogis, but that idea was scrapped before subscriptions were sold. Moogis subscribers will be able to watch the Beacon shows live, looped over the next 24 hours, then streamable on demand for six months after the run is over. A slew of live Allman’s audio and a video stream from the 2007 Piedmont Park concert are currently available for those who take the Moogis plunge.
Speaking of the Allman’s Beacon run, the band has just added five concerts to the docket bringing the current total to 15 shows. That works out to less than $7 per show for your $100 Moogis subscription if the Brothers don’t add any shows. The run starts on March 9 and continues through March 28. Just added shows include March 23, 24, 26, 27 and 28 which all go onsale to American Express customers tomorrow at 10AM before Friday’s public onsale at 10AM via Ticketmaster.com.
