Gregg to take time off before touring in 2017

It is with sincere regret to announce that Gregg Allman will be unable to play the remaining shows he has scheduled for the rest of 2016 and beginning of 2017.

Allman says, “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.”

Allman plans to take several months off to focus on his health so he can return to playing live later in 2017.

“Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it’s also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me.  I never want to put anybody in a bad spot.  I’m so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them.  That means I’m going to have to wait until I’m feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been.  Good enough isn’t working for us all.”

The City Winery shows in New York have been rescheduled for July 2017.  Information for City Winery ticket holders is below.  Keep in touch and we’ll let you know as soon as we have the other dates rescheduled as well.
