From the PR:

Sanctuary Visual Entertainment today announced the 27 October 2003 DVD release of the 2-disc live DVD "The Allman Brothers Band - Live at the Beacon Theatre", a live concert performance of the award-winning, legendary southern blues rock band that was filmed in New York City in March 2003.

"Live At The Beacon Theatre" captures The Allman Brothers Band at the peak of their performance live in 2003. The DVD includes the crème de la crème of their latest album, "Hittin The Note", as well as the best of their blues rock classics, along with interview features that delve deep into the soul of this legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band.

This compelling 2-disc DVD offering showcases The Allman Brothers Band during a 2 hour and 48 minute long concert recorded during their March 25-26 engagement at the
The Beacon Theatre, New York City. The DVD is mixed in three audio soundtrack modes including DTS 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, and Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo.

The latest incarnation of The Allman Brothers Band includes three founding members Gregg Allman (vocals, organ), Jaimoe (drums), and Butch Trucks (drums), along with long time band members Warren Haynes (lead guitar), Marc Quinones (percussion), and Oteil Burbridge (bass guitar). The concert boasts the latest addition to the band, Derek Trucks (slide guitar), who replaces original bass guitarist, Dickie Betts (who left the band in 1984).

This unique double DVD includes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes of DVD extras including interviews, behind- the-scenes footage, and the bonus track "Old Friend" which is filmed and recorded as a dressing room rehearsal.

Considered by many as one of the greatest white blues singers, Gregg Allman's soulful vocals stand out on the moving ballad "Old Before My Time". One of the highlights on the live DVD is the extended "Instrumental Illness"; a freeform instrumental jam that showcases the powerful musicianship the current incarnation of band has to offer.

When Warren Haynes took over as the current lead guitarist, he had the difficult task of filling the shoes of the original founding guitarist, Duane Allman. During "Live At The Beacon Theatre", he manages to recapture Duane's distinctive style of guitar playing; emotional leads steeped in vintage southern rock blues. Together, with the amazing slide guitar talents of newcomer Derek Trucks, both recapture the distinctive sound and magic of the original southern blues rock line-up.
