Allman Family Revival Set For 18-City Tour

The late-Gregg Allman will be celebrated with an 18-city Allman Family Revival tour featuring headliners, the Allman Betts Band (ABB). Rolling Stone reported the trek will kick off on November 27th at St. Louis' Factory and winds down on December 19th at L.A.'s Wiltern Theatre. The commemorative celebrations began in 2017 following Gregg Allman's death at age 69 due to complications from liver cancer.

The ABB is led by Allman's son Devon Allman, Dickey Betts' son Duane, and the late-Berry Oakley's son Berry Duane Oakley. Joining the group for the dates will be Robert Randolph, Donavon Frankenreiter, Lilly Hiatt, Cody and Luther Dickinson, Eric Gales, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Jimmy Hall, and Lamar Williams Jr. In several cities the revue will be joined by Kenny Wayne Shepherd, G. Love, Samantha Fish, Alex Orbison, and Kenny Aronoff.

Devon Allman told us that he got to connect several times with his dad in the months leading up to his death on March 27th, 2017: ["I made some trips down in the last six months. Y'know, I made sure to spend some time and put in some good quality time. I've been touring a lot myself, but all the kids went and hung out with him in December before Christmas and had a really wonderful hang with him and I was in the area on tour in March and went and spent time with him. Y'know, it's tough. (Laughs), he had a lotta kids, he had a lotta fans, a lotta friends, a lotta family, and y'know, you don't wanna crowd him when things are not lookin' so good."] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . lookin' so good)
