The Allman Brothers have become a fixture at the Beacon Theatre, though they relocated to the United Palace Theater for the 2010 edition due to scheduling conflicts with Cirque du Soleil. Tickets will go on sale January 11th at 10 a.m. EST and will be available through the Beacon Theatre's website and Ticketmaster.

Though the residencies typically feature notable guests, none have been announced for this string of shows. The Allman Brothers are also set to play at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden on April 12th and 13th.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
