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.
