Wow--how could any good Southern girl NOT want to see this amazing lineup at this amazing venue?! Soooo many memories of bands and place. Saw Bruce Hampton not too long ago at Shorty's and he's still the same energetic rocker as always. Have missed hearing the others. I very respectfully request that you choose me!!!!

Funnily enough, I did some work with the Capricorn label and some of these artists back in the '90s. Interesting bunch. Anyway, good luck to all of you. It should be a great show.

I've actually visited Chuck Leavells house and studio, just south of Macon. He has a large tree farm and is big into tree restoration and study. His house is very modest for the star that he is, but his studio is absolutely top notch!

Southern rock at it's best! I was born and raised in Athens, GA and saw many of these fine folks performing at The Hedges in the 70's. Any time you can see this much talent all in one place, on one night, you should go if you can!

Great line-up - would love to meet Chuck Leavell...not only a tremendous musician but a visionary for sustainable living. Talk about a well-rounded human being!

Saw the Stones at Tech Stadium. It was awesome! Sure would love to see Chuck again. Heard he lives in the Macon area and has a tree farm. The guys who back up the greatS will have their due on Friday. Hope we get a chance to go. ARLENE VOGEL

Are you kidding me? Chuck Leavell? Randall Bramlett? Bruce Hampton? Wet Willie? It's like the Perfect Storm of awesomeness all on one stage. I'd probably need a defib unit if I was able to see this concert!

My husband and I fell in love listening to music from Chuck Leavell and Randall Bramlett. This weekend marks our two-year anniversary. Time for a celebration indeed!

Great line-up. Great venue. Great weather. Would love to go!

Chuck Leavell et al at Chastain. No more need be said.

Perfect weather coming for the perfect concert.
Neal Miller September 10, 2012 at 07:30 PM
WOW!!! What a great concert this will be in HOTlanta during such a beautiful week of late summe weather. The Allman Brothers was my very fist concert at the Collesium in Cincinnati oh so MANY years ago. This would be an awesome opportunity to see one of them in person again!

I was born in Atlnata but spent most of my childhood in Macon. My grandfather owned WIBB radio station featuring Otis, James Brown and The Lone Ranger among others. Our next door neighbor was the road manager for the Allman Brothers. My parents have been great friends of Peggy and Phil Walden since they were all teenagers in Macon. Going to this concert would be a great tribute to my grandfather, my parents, and our southern roots.

Omg would love to see Chuck Leavell, a living legend and all the others are awesome. Can't beat Chastain for a wonderful concert experience.

Have just heard wet willie on radioparadise.com for the first time yesterday. If this isn't fate, I don't know what is!

Will there be anyone "Streaking" ? Back when R&R was wired, and no one on stage dared to touch more than one object, music was Electric, and Tape was magnetic and used for recording, and then pressing Records.. Will there be anyone passing out the 'joints' ?
Troy Tarpley September 11, 2012 at 11:31 PM
As a Macon resident, I have never had the opportunity to see some of my favorite musicians. Some of which are part of the Capricorn family. Oh, I seen tribute bands that were very good, but that ain't the same! This would be a show worth finding a babysitter for!
Karen Parker September 12, 2012 at 12:01 AM
My children met Chuck Leavell when he did a book signing, and I would love for them to truly experience what a great artist Chuck is. I had the pleasure of seeing him with the Stones at Grant Field, and to have met him and experienced what a humble, modest person he is makes him that much more wonderful!
D Ebaugh September 12, 2012 at 02:25 AM
Oooh - such a great musician! Would love the chance to see Chuck Leavell play again! Thx
John Taylor September 12, 2012 at 04:21 AM
Would love to see Chuck and Wet Willie again, and Randall Bramblett and Cowboy for the first time.

Was going to post yet another lame plea for free tickets but could not think of anything lamer to say than what's already been posted.....

Rock On Capricorn

Chuck's new CD is AWESOME!
michele oliver September 12, 2012 at 02:42 PM
Great group of musicians, love the lineup!
DB September 12, 2012 at 07:34 PM
Should be a great show.
Tom September 12, 2012 at 11:12 PM
When I came south I heard Sea Level for the first time. Took me 20 yrs to figure out the name of the band was a play on Chuck' name. Great mix of jazz & rock. Randall Bramlett & band played at the Mableton amphitheater a couple of weeks ago & put on an awesome performance. Col. Bruce is a legend in the Atlanta area & every time I've seen him I've been impressed. Wet Willie probably had the most commercial success & a great string of albums. I remember Cowboy from their debut & having Clapton cover one of their songs on his album. This a great gathering of veteran musicians that should put on one fantastic show.
Jeff Abney September 15, 2012 at 05:16 PM
The chance to see legends live! Been years since I saw Wet Willie in college. Never saw Chuck Leavell, but I'd love to him play.
