The Allman Brothers Confirm Final Shows
The Allman Brothers Band have announced their final plans. In a statement the group, which celebrated its 45th anniversary in March, have confirmed that their final live shows will take place at New York’s Beacon Theatre on October 27 and 28. The group has also rescheduled the four Beacon shows that were postponed in March after Gregg Allman fell ill. Those concerts will take place on Tuesday, October 21, Wednesday October 22, Friday, October 24 and Saturday, October 25.
Tickets purchased for those sold-out shows (originally set for 3/25, 26, 28 and 29) will be honored on these dates for the corresponding days (see itinerary below). Fans unable to attend the rescheduled shows can return tickets for a refund at the point of purchase prior to August 1.
This past January longtime Allman Brothers guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced that they would leave the veteran group after the band’s 2014 tour. In February, Allman told Relix that The Allman Brothers Band would part ways at the end of the year but left the door open to possible reunions shows down the road.
Confusing both the media and his fans, in April Allman reversed his statement and told Radio.com that The Allman Brothers Band planned to continue on with a new guitarist.
Band co-founder and drummer Butch Trucks also hinted that the group might try to soldier on with a new lineup.
The longtime ABB singer and organist has faced several health problems this year, including bronchitis and a hurt wrist. He cancelled several Australian shows with his solo due to his injuries.
The Allman Brothers Band have played the Beacon 232 times since 1989. On-sale information for the two newly-added shows will be announced in the near future. The Allman Brothers Band will take the stage at Hunter, NY’s Mountain Jam this weekend.
