The Allman Brothers Band plays whatever it feels like each night, and therefore set lists can vary dramatically. Such hits as "Jessica," "Midnight Rider," "Melissa," "Dreams" and "Whipping Post" pop up here and there but typically not together. Recently, the band has been spicing its shows with covers like Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" and The Band's "The Weight" as a tribute to the late Levon Helm. Expect an acoustic set midway through the concert.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
This blues rock band, which sprouted from Jacksonville, Fla., with brothers Gregg (vocals-organ) and Duane Allman (guitar) in 1969, has had more members than a major-league baseball team. The group's popularity grew through its stage performances, which were captured on the legendary 1971 live album, "At Fillmore East."
Carlos Santana is supporting his new instrumental album, "Shape Shifter," but will also perform a set chock-full of classics. Look out for such gems as "Black Magic Woman," "Soul Sacrifice" and "Evil Ways" to be mixed in with more modern hits "Smooth" and "Maria Maria." And, of course, no Santana show would be complete without his signature cover of Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va."
After building a reputation in the San Francisco Bay Area at the Fillmore, Santana made his breakthrough performance at Woodstock in 1969, which landed him a record deal. He went on to become a guitar icon fusing Latin rock with jazz, blues, salsa and African rhythms. His universal appeal has garnered him 10 Grammys, helping sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.
