Gregg Allman Will Return to the Road in April

Photo by Dino Perrucci

Gregg Allman plans to return to the road in April. The singer/organist will both perform with The Allman Brothers Band at Live Oak, FL’s Wanee Festival from April 10-12 and tour Australia with his solo group from April 18-23.

In a statement Allman says, “I feel almost 100% following my bout with bronchitis. I look forward to seeing the Allman Brothers Band fans at the Wanee Festival April 10-12, and I cannot wait for my first trip to Australia with my solo band to meet my down under fans.”

Allman sat out The Allman Brothers Band’s performances at New York’s Beacon Theatre on March 21 and 22 due to bronchitis. Harp player Jimmy Hall, singer Susan Tedeschi, Tedeschi Trucks Band keyboardist Kofi Burbridge and Dark Star Orchestra keyboardist Rob Barraco are among the musicians who filled in for Allman during the sold-out shows.

Earlier this week The Allman Brothers Band announced that they planned to reschedule their final four shows at the Beacon until after Allman fully recovers. Those shows included both the band’s official 45th anniversary performance and their final night at the Beacon with longtime guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks. As of press time, the band has not confirmed their rescheduled Beacon dates.

Glad the cat is doing well. Hope to see Gregg Allman belting it out for many more years with the brothers or not. Gregg needs to call Dickey and settle the feud once and for all and keep it rolling with Dickey through a 50 year anniversary run for about another 5 years. There is a ton of music left in both of these guys and age means nothing. Gregg has a ton of material written and so does Dickey, These guys should be hitting the studio for some long awaited new songs. Butch, Jaimoe, and Gregg know the real dough is in the Allman Brothers Band continued efforts, Derek and Warren leaving or not. Bring back Dickey and another guitarist and keep the train rolling. Can’t blame Derek or Warren for leaving as their great main gigs are more important for their careers at this time, both being in their prime. That doesn’t mean the Brothers should pack it in. Another guitarist along with Dickey and maybe Chuck can still make the band a powerhouse going forward. Make it happen Gregg. Hoping for the blockbuster news of Dickey returning for another chapter in the legends of the Brothers.

Allman health wise can’t make it through a Beacon run anymore and still has to annouce when the four final postponed ABB shows from March are scheduled to make place. Dickey is 70 years old. What would be cool is if if Gregg and Dickey, just the two of them together as “Brothers” recorded something as a duo one time together 45 years since they kids really, and both were integral in founding The Great ABB , which will be no more at the end of this year except for recordings and memories. Time waits for no one.

I had bought a ticket to 1 of the cancelled shows at the Beacon. The ticketmaster agent that I spoke to told me that the rescheduled Beacon dates are in March of 2016. Was told they have the date for each show in their system. Is TM misinformed?

The end of the road is inevitable, friends. The ABB have been a large part of my life, but they should go out strong. No need to embarrass themselves like the Dead in 90s by dragging it out with other players. Dickey and Gregg will not work together again, and we should all try to accept that. And yes, Ticketmaster is misinformed.

Tony you are 100% right. And gregg supposedly has had all these new songs wrote for years and years. Him and Scott Sharrard should start recording them soon.

Let it go. We need not see a novelty act ie., Lover Boy, Foreigner and Styx! There is no more Bros. after 2014 and there shouldn’t be. They ended it with Class!

The remnants of The ABB may have some recordings left in them but forget the live shows after the Beacon fiasco this year.
