Gregg Allman Confirms Fall Tour, Plans to Enter the Studio This Fall

Gregg Allman has confirmed a fall tour. The Allman Brothers Band leader will head out on the road with his solo band in October for a series of theater and festival dates. The shows fall about a month after The Allman Brothers Band’s late summer tour. This fall also marks the 40th anniversary of The Allman Brothers Band’s best-selling album, Brothers & Sisters. He also plans to enter the studio in the near future.

“I’m in the midst of writing a bunch of different stuff,” Allman told Access Atlanta. “I’d like to get the buzz back in the studio, so I’ll be going back in after the Allmans tour. What’s on my bucket list is a record I want to call All Compositions By… but I have to get the damn songs written. I do write a lot when I’m listening to music, it primes the pump.”

Allman and his solo group will perform at Louisville, Kentucky’s Iroquois Amphitheater this evening.

Here’s a look at Gregg Allman’s fall dates

October 11 Montgomery, AL—Montgomery Performing Arts Center

Sounds like a good show, no love for the northeast though…but seeing ABB here in September. Not sure if they ever read these things but I’d like to thank all of them for my 35 years of great shows. You never get cheated whenever you shell out to see any of them. ABB, Gregg, Tedeschi Trucks…anything Warren! Burbridges, Ray and now Devon. Check out Royal Southern Brotherhood if you can. In an industry full of flash and money grabbers they all seem to stand out as guys who enjoy it and appreciate it. I appreciate that.

Gregg has apparently never heard the story of the boy that cried wolf. How many times can he publicly state “I’m writing a bunch of stuff…?”

Bill Harriman June 27, 2013, 12:36:01

Hey Wolf – he just wrote his memoir and it was excellent. Just saying….

Mark June 27, 2013, 14:05:21

Bolinger,
Gregg play southern Cal almost every year and performed several shows around the SF bay area (Mill Valley, Palace Of Fine Arts, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe) last year and did about 3 shows in Oregon about 3 years ago.
ABB perormed in Portland with the Doobie Bros opening) a couple years ago.
I agree however, it would be great to see him get up to Portland, and Washington more often.

July 85 downtown Dallas, Apt. Complex, I bought your entire band a shot an a beer; You guys delivered flat out the best Jams that city has ever seen in its life. Very honored to shake your hand that day. Im still recording for Of the Wall Band up here in Seattle; I,ll keep up with Ya,ll Later. And see if you can come up to Seattle if ya get time. Lata Glen….

California needs some Allman Brothers love too.
I am flying to Charlotte and spending the weekend at 2 shows but I am still campaigning for the west coast. I have never seen them before so it will be a perfect ending for the summer!!!!
