Allman Brothers Postpone More Dates Due to Gregg Allman's Bronchitis
UPDATE: The band announced Monday that they will postpone the remaining four dates at the Beacon Theatre as Allman recovers from bronchitis. "The Allman Brothers Band announced the postponement of the remaining four Beacon Theatre performances on March 25, March 26, March 28 and March 29 as Gregg Allman recovers from bronchitis. As a result of Mr. Allman's illness, the Allman Brothers Band is unable to perform at the level to which they aspire."
Bronchitis has sidelined Gregg Allman for at least two dates of the Allman Brothers Band's annual shows at the Beacon Theatre, but his rep says the musician hopes to return to the stage in a few days.
Allman was forced to sit out shows Friday and Saturday. Michael Lehman says Allman is under a doctor's care and is doing better and intends to return for the group's final four shows over the next week.
Lehman says the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had been feeling fine up until the illness; the 66-year-old has had health issues in the past, including a 2010 liver transplant.
The band is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year. Its annual run at the Beacon started March 7 and wraps up March 29.
