Gregg Allman Plots Nationwide Spring Tour
Gregg Allman recently wrapped up his first post-Allman Brothers Band solo tour, but the “Whipping Post” singer has already made plans to get back out on the road with a newly announced spring tour. While Allman’s January trek saw the rocker circling the southeastern United States, his next tour will travel from Ohio and Iowa to Los Angeles and Austin.
Among the notable stops on Allman’s tour include two nights at Chicago’s House of Blues on March 19th and 20th, an appearance at Indio, California’s Stagecoach Festival and an April 24th gig at Los Angeles’ famed Roxy Theatre. After three shows in Texas, the 21-date tour will culminate with a May 9th performance on the Austin City Limits stage.
Like his previous trek, 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.
The Allman Brothers Band concluded their 45-year run together in 2014 with a string of shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre, the venue that frequently hosted the band’s legendary residencies. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band performed their final gig together on October 28th, 2014.
