The Allman Brothers Band at the New Orleans Super Dome!

I recall that at the time of this show, I didn't have enough money for tickets. The good thing was my then girl friend surprised me by buying tickets for us to go! It was one of the opening events in the Super Dome and this was gonna be a good one! Festival seating on the floor of the dome wasn't a bad place to be, but sitting on concert wasn't much fun either.

As I recollect, the concert was: Charlie Daniels band, the Wet Willie band, the Marshall Tucker band and finally the Allman Brothers band! What a concert! For Many years this was The Largest attended event in the Super Dome, somewhere around 80,000 announced in attendance.

It was a night to remember is all I can say! One that remained with me to this very day!

Oh what a nite there

I can't remember all that night because it was so awesome. I thought the rolling stones where there also. If any one has any pictures of that night please post them. All mine were burned...My sister and I were wasted on life that night..

10 hour concert for $10.00

I can remember going to this concert. We paid $10.00 a ticket, we were up in the stadium but had a great time. We had binoculars and could see Cher sitting behind a huge speaker on the stage for The Allman Brothers. The Allman Brothers entered the superdorm in a limo.

Wrong Photos

The two photos attributed to this concert are not correct. That's Dickey Betts on the left and Duane Allman on the right. Both of these pictures are taken at The Fillmore East in 1971(Duane passed away in Nov/1971)

Really?

The thing I remember the most is the Allman's were about an hour late for the show and they only played 30-45 minutes before they walked off the stage...

I was stunned as I'd seen them a year earlier in Evanston, IN and they were great.

But at the Super Dome, they sucked.

The cement floor was hard

We traveled there form Charleston, SC after we were discharged from the Navy 2 days earlier. Allman Bros took their time getting up to the stage, they were the last band. Good concert but that Superdome floor was pretty hard.
