Illness forces Allman Bros. to postpone more shows
NEW YORK (AP) — The Allman Brothers have postponed the remainder of their Beacon Theatre run this week due to Gregg Allman’s illness.
A Monday news release says Allman is recovering from a case of bronchitis that already forced the postponement of concerts last Friday and Saturday.
Michael Lehman, Allman’s manager, had said over the weekend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member was under a doctor’s care and intended to play the final four shows of the run Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The band is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year.
The 66-year-old singer and multi-instrumentalist has generally been in good health despite previous issues, including a 2010 liver transplant.
New dates have not yet been announced.
