Having just completed the now legendary final shows the Allman Brothers Band will ever play, one would imagine that the group's iconic leader Gregg Allman would want to kick back, relax, and reflect on what has to be a very emotional moment for him. Instead, he's announcing a solo tour.
The dates will begin December 31st, with a celebratory New Year's Eve show at Atlanta's Symphony Hall. The tour will end its run on January 17th in Savannah, GA, at the Johnny Mercer Theatre. Allman's touring band has been receiving raves from around the world, and features guitarist Scott Sharrard, Peter Levin on keys, drummer Steve Potts, percussionist Marc Quinones, Ron Johnson on bass and horn players Jay Collins, Art Edmaiston and Marc Franklin.
