Allmans Postpone Beacon Run as Gregg Allman Heals

Posted: Mar 28, 2008

The Allman Brothers Band have announced that they are postponing their annual run of 15 shows at New York City’s Beacon Theatre set for May 5-24, with rescheduled dates TBA. In addition, they have also cancelled their upcoming performances at the Wanee Festival that they host every year in Florida (set for April 11-12, Wanee will continue as planned despite the fact that the Allman Brothers Band will not be appearing).

For the past six months, Gregg Allman has been receiving scheduled treatments for
Hepatitis C, a virus that, with these treatments, has become curable in recent years. The treatments so far have been successful and the virus has been eradicated from his system. However, the recovery time from the side effects of the treatment are taking longer than originally projected. The band members made a group decision to delay the first round of dates.

“I’m getting better but I’m still tired,” says Gregg. “I need to be at 110% to do the shows the way we do them. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the support and understanding my Brothers and our fans have given me.”

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.
