As a founding member of the one and only Allman Brothers Band and in his own storied solo career, Allman has long been gifted natural interpreter of the blues, his soulful and distinctive voice is one of the defining sounds in the history of American music. The legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer has long been putting his own stamp on songs by some of the blues giants whose work has long informed his own, from Muddy Waters and BB King to Buddy Guy and Magic Sam. Allmans solo career is a heart felt reflection of a remarkable body of work, rich with passion, verve, and the unerring confidence of a true survivor.
Like any genuine bluesman, Allman's own life has been colored by myriad triumphs and too many tragedies. Gregg, who had long battled chronic Hepatitis C, was notified that he was a candidate for a liver transplant. In June 2010, he entered the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida where he successfully underwent the difficult surgery. An inveterate road warrior, Allman was understandably itching to return to the endless highway. He spent the months following the surgery hitting both the gym and the rehearsal studio, working hard to restore his vitality to its requisite level.
This Summer, Allman returns to that endless highway on a solo tour that is guaranteed to be remembered for years to come, just as his music and his words will always be.
