Allman Bros Tour Announced
The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND wrapped up their ninth annual Wanee Festival this past weekend in Live Oak, FL (April 18-20) and have announced a short select late summer tour, launching with two “evening with” nights in Chicago August 20-21, following their August 16-17 performances at their second annual Peach Festival in northeast Pennsylvania. On the ten amphitheater shows that follow, the group will be joined by their pal STEVE WINWOOD for six shows (August 23-30) and GRACE POTTER & THE NOCTURNALS for four nights (September 2-7).
The live rock icons--GREGG ALLMAN (vocals and keyboards), BUTCH TRUCKS (drums and tympani), JAIMOE (drums), WARREN HAYNES (vocals, lead and slide guitar), DEREK TRUCKS (slide and lead guitar), OTEIL BURBRIDGE (bass) and MARC QUINONES (congas and percussion)--are touring selectively as the band members tour with their various side projects. Of the upcoming tour, Gregg Allman said, “This will be a good little run. We’ve always loved Steve and we’ve been listening to a lot of Grace’s stuff, so I imagine we’re going to have a bunch of fun together.” The ABB are known for their version of the Spencer Davis Group’s “Don’t Want You No More” as well as occasionally performing the Steve Winwood-penned “Can’t Find My Way Home.”
