In just a few short months an impressive lineup of musicians will gather at the Fox
in Atlanta on January 10 to honor Gregg Allman. The Allman Brothers, Widespread
Panic, Robert Randolph, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Sam Moore, Taj Mahal and Warren
are just a few of the acts taking part in All My Friends: A Tribute To Gregg
Tickets for the event sold out immediately, but for those who can't attend we've got some
good news. This morning an interview with Gregg was posted by Access Atlanta with a juicy tidbit of note.
The event "will be filmed for multi-platform distribution" by a team led by Keith Wortman.
Wortman put together the Love For Levon: A Benefit To Save The Barn feature that
aired on cable and was released in a variety of video formats. We'd expect the same for
All My Friends.
Allman also expressed his enthusiasm for returning to The Fox, “We played the Fox a couple
of times over the years to keep it from getting torn down,” he told Access Atlanta. “You
know, people rise up in Atlanta. People love that place and they should. It’s so perfectly
tuned. It’s a magical place.”
