DID YOU KNOW???
Actor William Hurt has been cast as the present-day version of Gregg Allman in the upcoming Allman biopic, Midnight Rider. Hurt is best known for his work in such films as The Big Chill, Broadcast News, along with his Oscar-winning role in 1985's Kiss Of The Spider Woman.
Hurt joins the cast, which features All American Rejects lead singer Tyson Ritter, who plays the younger Allman in the film, along with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn's son Wyatt Russell, who'll portray the late Duane Allman.
Tickets are now on sale for the Allman Brothers Band's 2014 "March Madness" run at New York City's Beacon Theater. As it stands now, the band will play 10 nights between March 7th and 22nd -- with more shows expected to be added should the initial dates sell out.
The Allmans' Beacon dates are: March 7th, 8th, 11th, 12th, 14th, 15th, 18th, 19th, 21st, and 22nd.
The Allman's third annual Peach Music Festival is set for August 14th through the 17th. The event, which will take place at Scranton, Pennsylvania's Pavilion At Montage Mountain, will feature two headlining sets from the band -- including a set to close out the weekend."
The Allman Brothers Band guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks have announced their departure from the legendary group after this yea. Haynes joined the band via co-founding member Dickey Betts in 1999, with Derek Trucks -- the nephew of drummer Butch Trucks joining in 1999. Speculation is divided between who will replace the two iconic guitarists and whether the Allman's should simply pack it in while on top.
