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.
Allman is one of rock’s most acclaimed and beloved stars, possessing a distinctively soulful voice and singular songwriting ability that resonates through a musical career that spans nearly half a century. Gregg, along with the Allman Brothers Band, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1995. At the 54th Annual Grammy Awards in 2012, the group was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. That same year, Allman’s critically acclaimed tell-all memoir, “My Cross to Bear”, spent several weeks as a New York Times Bestseller.
In 2011, Rounder Records released Allman’s first solo record in 14 years, the celebrated, Grammy nominated, T Bone Burnett-produced “Low Country Blues”. Earlier this year, Rounder put out the critically acclaimed “All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman”, the CD/DVD/Blu-Ray that captured a multi-generational assortment of musicians from the worlds of rock, blues and country joined together at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theatre for a once-in-a-lifetime all-star performance paying tribute to Allman’s life and music.
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.
