Allman Brothers Band founding member Gregg Allman missed last night's show at the Beacon Theatre after coming down with
bronchitis. This morning, those holding tickets to tonight's The Allman Brothers
Band show in NYC received an email informing them that Gregg Allman "will be unable to
perform" this evening. The email goes on to say that "The Allman Brothers Band will
perform as scheduled" and "All remaining shows will go on as scheduled."
Last night the band called upon Kofi Burbridge (ARU, Tedeschi Trucks Band) and Rob Barraco
(Dark Star Orchestra, Phil Lesh Quintet) to fill in for Gregg during a show that also saw appearances from Susan Tedeschi, Bill Evans, Devon
Allman and Cyril Neville. No word yet on who will handle Gregg's parts this evening.
Here's the full text of the email from MSGE:
Dear The Allman Brothers Band Ticket Holder:
Please be advised that, due to illness, Gregg Allman will be unable to perform on
Saturday, March 22. The Allman Brothers Band will perform as scheduled. We apologize for
any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to your continued patronage of The
All remaining shows will go on as scheduled.
Madison Square Garden Entertainment
There's no mention of refunds being offered. Our thoughts are with Gregg in hopes he makes
a full recovery. Tonight's show is the 10th of 14 sold-out Allman Brothers Band
performances that make up this year's March Madness run.
