The Allman Brothers
Band have decided to reschedule the remaining four shows of this year's March Madness
run at the Beacon Theatre in New York City due to Gregg Allman's bronchitis. No new dates
have been decided thus far.
The Allmans went ahead without Gregg on Friday and Saturday, but apparently thought better of continuing
on when it became clear Allman would be unable to return for the four remaining performances.
Gregg has battled many health issues in recent years following a Hepatitis C diagnosis in
2007 and a liver transplant in 2010. Allman had to miss the final show of the Allman
Brothers Band's 2012 Beacon run due to back issues. In addition to the two Beacon
performances Gregg had to miss this year, Butch Trucks was unable to play at the third show of the run back on March 11.
Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks are parting ways with
Brothers Band at the end of 2014 leaving the future of the band beyond this year in
Here's the statement from the band and MSG Entertainment:
The Allman Brothers Band announced the postponement of the remaining four Beacon Theatre performances on March 25, March 26, March 28 and March 29 as Gregg Allman recovers from bronchitis. As a result of Mr. Allman’s illness, the Allman Brothers Band is unable to perform at the level to which they aspire.
