Alltel Pavillion Raleigh,NC 9/23/2000

To my surprise, founding member Dickey Betts was jettisoned from the band shortly after the Beacon run in 2000. I've just gotten tickets to the Allman Brothers with high hopes for a smokin' show in Milwaukee. Replacing Betts was Jimmy Herring from the Aquarium Rescue Unit. Although Herring is a great guitar player in his own right, the Herring/Trucks combo was bland and rather uninspiring. Herring left after the tour.
