Gregg Allman Cancels Tour Dates Due To Serious Health Issues
Legendary musician Gregg Allman has been forced to cancel several upcoming tour dates due to “serious health issues.” The co-founding member of The Allman Brothers Band is currently receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
As reported, Allman recently was forced to cancel a concert planned at the Greenfield Amphitheater in Wilmington, North Carolina and his headlining set at last weekend’s FloydFest. Allman will no longer appear at the Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania on August 12 or at any of his other scheduled appearances through October 16, many of which were bills shared with ZZ Top. Allman was not only supposed to perform with his own band at Peach, but he was also set to play a “Gregg Allman Incident” set with The String Cheese Incident. Peach Fest organizers posted a statement that said, “We wish the best for Gregg and hope to see him back in action soon. We look forward to celebrating his spirit at the Peach next weekend. Stay tuned for line-up additions.” A comment from the Peach team adds, “we are working on something special.”
“I want to thank my fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can,” said Gregg Allman. “I’ve been working hard with my band, my pride and joy, to play our music for everyone. We’ll see y’all in October.”
Currently Gregg plans to return to the stage at his Laid Back Festival being held at Lakewood Amphitheatre near Atlanta on October 29. Last week it was revealed Allman will host a 10-night residency at City Winery in New York City. Gregg is slated to play the NYC venue on November 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17 and 18.
