On August 10, 2002, the Allman Brothers Band made the trip to Mansfield for a show at the Comcast Center, then known as the Tweeter Center.
The band had been re-energized in recent years thanks to the return of Warren Haynes, who assumed double duty as both guitarist for the Allmans and frontman for jam band Gov’t Mule. The show came a year before the band’s Grammy-nominated 2003 album Hittin’ the Note.
A review of the show by Chris Robinson at JamBands.com lauded the performance as “overwhelmingly good” and the band’s best since 1999, noting Gregg Allman’s “awesome vocals” and praising Derek Trucks as a “young phenom.”
According to the review the setlist featured songs like “Don’t Keep Me Wondering,” “No One To Run With,” “Come And Go Blues,” “Old Before My Time,” “You Don’t Love Me,” “Worried Down With The Blues” and “Dreams,” in addition to “Whipping Post” and other staples.
No video from the actual show is online, but here’s a clip of the band playing the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco in 2002, just two months before hitting Mansfield.
