The Allman Brothers Band put the wraps on their 45-year career Tuesday night with a final show at New York’s Beacon Theater, their 232nd performance at the legendary venue since they started doing a yearly residency there in 1989.

With a capacity crowd on hand to say goodbye, the band turned in a three-set performance of 24 songs over four-and-a-half hours. After an encore of “Whippin’ Post,” they gathered at center stage, where Gregg Allman finally addressed the crowd. He talked about the first rehearsal the band ever had, March 26th, 1969 in Jacksonville, Florida, and, fighting back tears, he added, “Never did we have any idea it would come to this. We give you a heartfelt thank you.” They then played the first song they’d ever performed, “Trouble No More.”

After they left the stage, photos from throughout their career flashed on the screen, with the Jefferson Airplane‘s “Embryonic Journey” providing the soundtrack. The show ended at 1:30 ET on the morning of October 29th, 2014, the 43rd anniversary of the death of the band’s founder, Duane Allman.

There were a few celebrities in the crowd, including Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke, tennis great John McEnroe — who was seated on stage — and comedian Bill Maher.
