Dickey Betts to Tour in 2018
 
Posted on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 02:35 PM

Dickey Betts announced today, on his birthday, December 12, that he will return to the road for a select group of dates in 2018.

As reported in an exclusive interview in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Dickey said “Everywhere I go fans keep saying they want me to get out and play again ... I think the time is right.”

The 2018 concert dates will feature Betts peppering his setlists with songs written by Gregg Allman, whose credits include “Midnight Rider,” “Melissa” and “Whipping Post.” The 23-minute live version of “Whipping Post” from the Allman Brothers Band’s masterful, breakthrough album “At Fillmore East” famously features the dual lead guitar playing of Betts and Duane Allman.
“I think the fans deserve to hear a few of Gregg’s song as well, so I’m pulling out some classics,” Betts said.

“We really gave this a lot of thought as to how and what the show will be,” Spero said. “Even I can’t wait to see it.” 

The Dickey Betts Band hitting the road in 2018 will consist of Dickey and son Duane sharing lead guitar duties.

“Dickey is talking to some of the guys he has played with,” Spero said. “We should know in a couple of weeks who will comprise the band.”

Gregory Lenoir Allman - Dec 8, 1947 - May 27, 2017
 
Posted on Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 03:59 PM
It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia.

Gregg struggled with many health issues over the past several years. During that time, Gregg considered being on the road playing music with his brothers and solo band for his beloved fans, essential medicine for his soul. Playing music lifted him up and kept him going during the toughest of times.

Gregg’s long time manager and close friend, Michael Lehman said, “I have lost a dear friend and the world has lost a brilliant pioneer in music. He was a kind and gentle soul with the best laugh I ever heard. His love for his family and bandmates was passionate as was the love he had for his extraordinary fans. Gregg was an incredible partner and an even better friend. We will all miss him.”

Gregg is survived by his wife, Shannon Allman, his children, Devon, Elijah Blue, Delilah Island Kurtom and Layla Brooklyn Allman; 3 grandchildren, his niece, Galadrielle Allman, lifelong friend Chank Middleton, and a large extended family. The family will release a statement soon, but for now ask for privacy during this very difficult time.

The family suggests that tributes to Gregg can be made to the Gregg Allman Scholarship Fund at The University of Georgia or the Allman/Lehman Endowed Scholarship at Syracuse University.

Monday, Feb 20, in Macon, Georgia at the Cox Capitol Theatre, Butch Trucks' family and friends held a private memorial service celebrating his life. Memories were shared and stories were told, and it was abundantly clear that Butch had just as profound an impact on people as he did on the music we love so much.

Members of the Allman Brothers Band, Les Brers, the Freight Train Band, Vaylor Trucks and guests performed for us, and the music has never been more poignant. Please continue to send your much appreciated love to the Trucks family, and let Butch's passion and drive inspire you to reach ever higher in your daily lives.
