alman brothers peach Allman Brothers schedule annual residency at New Yorks Beacon Theatre

Here’s a fact that will disturb your ‘rents: The Allman Brothers‘ seminal 1972 live album, Eat a Peach, celebrates its 40th birthday this year. As a result, the Southern rockers have dubbed 2012, “The Year of the Peach”, and have announced their annual residency at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, set to take place this March.

The first of 10 shows at the Beacon start Friday, March 9th and continue up until Sunday, March 25th. Tickets go on sale January 6th, and given that they’ve sold out 200 shows since they started the tradition in 1989, it would behoove one to grab a pair sooner rather than later. Consult the full list of dates below, and plan accordingly.

In related news, “The Year of the Peach” only gets sweeter since the band will receive a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award on Saturday February 11th during Grammy Week in Los Angeles. Naturally, this event will be mentioned in the national TV broadcast on February 12th.

“It’s shaping up to be a great year,” says co-founder Butch Trucks. “We just wanted to make music that was honest and play it for friends, which is pretty much what we’ve done.  It’s an honor to be able to be recognized like this.”

Couple the above with the band’s forthcoming appearance at this year’s Wanee Fest, and there’s little to argue against “The Year of the Peach”. Mmm.
