November 9, 2016 – Gregg Allman won’t be able to play the remaining 22 shows he has scheduled for December 2016 and January 2017 due to a recent vocal injury requiring additional rest.
Allman says, “This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long, time. I’ve been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it’s time for me to take some real time off to heal.”
Allman plans to take several months off to focus on his health so he can return to playing live later in 2017.
“Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it’s also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me. I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I’m so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them. That means I’m going to have to wait until I’m feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn’t working for us all.”
