Gregg Allman Cancels June Concerts & Will Not Tour in 2017
By: Maura O'Malley
Yesterday, founding Allman Brothers Band member Greg Allman canceled this June’s concerts and, according to his website, he won’t be touring in 2017. Fans with tickets to any of the canceled June shows will receive a refund.
There was no reason given as to why the show will not go on, so this news comes as a surprise to many, especially since Allman is constantly on the road. However, recent health issues have prevented Allman from touring in the past.
After canceling his winter tour, which was scheduled for late 2016 and early 2017, Allman shared, “This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long time. I’ve been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it’s time for me to take some real time off to heal.”
So whatever the reason for these recent cancellations, we’re betting that this wasn’t an easy announcement for Allman to make.
While it’s no live show, we do have a different kind Gregg Allman concert for you. This weekend, Allman shared the entire recording of his December '81 concert at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ. Enjoy!
