While the Allman Brothers Band hit the end of their long road together October 28th with a farewell concert at New York’s Beacon Theatre, frontman Gregg Allman is showing no signs of slowing down. Just days after the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band called it quits (for now at least), Allman has plotted out a tour of the southeastern United States, kicking off with a New Year’s Eve gig at Atlanta’s Symphony Hall.
Allman will embark on a two-week, 10-date trek after the December 31st show that will travel from Florida to Georgia with quick visits to Tennessee and North Carolina before concluding at Savannah, Georgia’s Johnny Mercer Theatre on January 17th.
With the Allman Brothers Band no more, Allman will be joined on the road by guitarist Scott Sharrard, Peter Levin on keys, drummer Steve Potts, percussionist Marc Quinones, bassist Ron Johnson and horn players Jay Collins, Art Edmaiston and Marc Franklin.
Earlier this year, longtime Allman Brothers Band guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes both revealed they would be leaving the band for good at the end of 2014. Allman subsequently revealed that the Allman Brothers Band would cease touring following their Beacon Theatre run in late-October.
