Gregg Allman Concerts Rescheduled, Previews Album

Share This:

On November 8, when health reasons caused Gregg Allman to postpone his winter tour, he said: “This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long, time. I’ve been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it’s time for me to take some real time off to heal.”

In mid-December, the musician rescheduled those dates, including a 10-date residency at New York’s City Winery that was originally scheduled to commence on November 9.

Allman’s first four 2017 dates are, fittingly, scheduled for Macon, GA’s Grand Opera House on June 2-3-5-6. After several additional shows in the southeast, he’ll begin his NYC dates on July 2 continuing through July 17. (See the complete itinerary below.) Tickets for some of his 2017 schedule are already available here.

Allman had been suffering from the effects of pneumonia he incurred earlier this year. In a statement last month he said:  “Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it’s also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me. I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I’m so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them. That means I’m going to have to wait until I’m feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn’t working for us all.”

On January 31, he offered the briefest snippet of his new album, Southern Blood. It’s available for pre-order here. Have a listen…

Says Allman: “That’s the music to my ears!”

    So glad Gregg Allman will be back out doing some touring in 2017. Really praying we get an Allman brothers reunion with Dickie!! It’s time for these two brothers..Gregg and get together again and do what they do best. They’re both great on their own but you can’t beat the sound and songs of the greatest southern rock band being played by these two originators together.
