Here we have an Allman Brothers original handbill we are offering for the FIRST time in our auction! This handbill was produced to advertise the group at the Jacksonville Coliseum on Easter Sunday, April 11th 1971. There is some speculation about whether this show happened or was cancelled, due to the fact that members of the band and road crew were arrested a couple weeks earlier on March 22nd. The arrest led to several dates in late March and early April to be cancelled.

 

Some sources claim the band played in Mississippi on April 11th, the same date of this Jacksonville show, however we can find no evidence that concert actually happened either. The show that was booked at West Georgia College the following night was also cancelled. This handbill was obtained from the promoter and exhibits hand-written notes from the promoter's staff or venue staff on the reverse. Very little material from the early years of the Allman brothers still exists today. Handbills from the Duane Allman era of the group are highly desirable and especially targeted by collectors.
