However, the recovery time from the side effects of the treatment are taking longer than originally projected. Since the Allman Brothers Band are known for exhilarating and exhausting concert performances, they don’t want to give fans anything less than they have come to expect, so the band members made a group decision to delay the first round of dates.
“I’m getting better but I’m still tired,” says Gregg. “I need to be at 110 percent to do the shows the way we do them. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the support and understanding my brothers and our fans have given me.”
Organizers say the Wanee Festival featuring Gov’t Mule, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi’s Soul Stew Revival, moe., Levon Helm and others will indeed take place April 11-12 in Live Oak, FL, despite the Brothers’ cancellation. As for other Allman Brothers Band dates, a 12-concert jaunt planned for August, including two shows that have already been announced (8/16 in Boston, MA and 8/23 in Camden, NJ), will go on as scheduled. The rescheduling of the Beacon Theatre run and additional fall shows will be announced soon. The band did not say whether they will still be playing at the Bonnaroo festival on June 12-15.
