On 20 March, history was made a second time when Eric Clapton again joined The Allman Brothers Band on stage at New York City's Beacon Theater. The seven-song set left those in attendance speechless.

Stepping out a few songs into the second set with his daphne blue signature stratocaster, EC's set with the Allman Brothers was "Key To The Highway," "Stormy Monday," "Dreams," "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad," "Little Wing," an epic version of "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed," and the evening's encore, "Layla."
