Gregg Allman Set to Return to The Stage After Liver Transplant


Good news out of Florida for Allman Brothers fans: Gregg Allman has recovered from a successful liver transplant and is ready to get back to playing live! Allman, who has been out of the hospital for a little over a month, has set up a few solo shows at New Brunswick’s Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival on September 15 and 16. Following the two solo show will be his first gigs with the Brothers at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre in November. The shows are being billed as an evening with the Allman Brothers Band and will showcase the members of the latest incarnation of one of America’s greatest rock bands. The Allman Brothers will feature Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks on guitar, Oteil Burbridge on bass, and original members Butch Trucks and Jaimoe on drums.

Allman, who is 62, seems to have a new lease on life. His passion for music has always been strong, but I expect that with his new liver and a clean bill of health, he will return to the stage with a renewed sense of passion. Allman posted an update on his web site saying, “I got up early and watched the sunrise on the beach this morning, which was amazing. I’m feeling pretty good and moving around well.”

Looking forward to seeing Gregg back on the road and hearing that amazing jam that is the genius of the Allman Brothers Band!
