The New York City affiliate of LiveNation recently tweeted a poster with the title The Brothers, with the caption #TheBrothers50, indicating that the group may be planning to return for some kind of 50th anniversary celebration, albeit without the remaining Allmans. This celebration is set to go down in March 2020, although the band’s exact lineup remains unknown.

Two of the three original band members Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman both passed away in 2017, leaving Jai Johanny Johanson, the band’s drummer, as the only original member of the group. The group’s final lineup included Butch Trucks’ nephew Derek Trucks, Oteil Burbridge (now of Dead & Company), Warren Hayes (Gov’t Mule, Phil Lesh and Friends, etc), and Marc Quiñones.
The only other surviving member of the band’s original 1969 lineup is Dickey Betts, who left the band back in 2000. Duane Allman, who was known as the band’s original leader was killed in a motorcycle accident back in 1971, which served as the inspiration for the band’s 1972 album titled Eat a Peach.
A live album capturing the band’s legendary 1971 concert performance a the original Fillmore in San Francisco, California, which followed up their legendary concert performance at the Fillmore East in New York City, was released earlier this year. The project, titled Fillmore West ’71 features many of the same tracks as their original Fillmore East performance, with the addition of tracks such as “Waters,” “Dreams” and “Hoochie Coochie Man.” These recordings were made from January 29 to 31 in 1971.
