I just saw on Facebook that Gregg is cancelling at least the Macon date. This is from GrandMacon.com. Sorry I don't know how to link.

The Grand is sad to report that Gregg Allman’s concert dates scheduled for June 2nd, 3rd, 5th, & 6th at the Grand Opera House in Macon, GA have been cancelled along with the entire 2017 tour.

The Grand has begun the refund process for those who had purchased tickets for the dates.

This is really not good news. I keep Gregg in my prayers but he's not in the best health.

I'm really glad I did not get tickets for those shows, or buy plane tickets and a hotel room for multiple nights.

Currently posted on Gregg's site:


GREGG CANCELS TOUR DATES


It has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017. For those of you who purchased tickets for shows in June, contact the ticket outlet from where you purchased the tickets for a refund.


Not good. This is obviously a concern but given the proximity of this announcement to Gregg just getting married, I am more than a little worried.

Stay well Gregg. Sending healing thoughts and thanks.

This news seems disconcerting, however he may just want the time to ....tour the planet with his new bride....check off some of his bucket list items, etc,.... Not all musicians are Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson who want to be on the road, all the time. I say good for your, Gregg. If it is health related, he must need the time off. Take it and get well. I'm hoping it's the former. Either way, we all love you and wish you the best.

Very disappointing news. Without theorizing too much, one would have to assume that his health is just not real stable right now. My concern is that he turns the corner more than me getting to hear him live again, although that is always something I look forward to.

Grieving Butch. He needs time off.

It has got to be something very serious if he is canceling shows 3 months before hand.. I hope he enjoys everyday of the rest of his life..

Would be nice to know what is going on. I have to cancel yet another trip to USA for this!
I'm destined never to see Gregg live as he cancelled his only ever Melbourne Australia show, then the Allman Brothers broke up then he cancelled yet another tour I was going to see.
Hope the man is ok.

Agree. If I had been so trusting as to pre-book tickets for a GA show, I would expect more than a bald statement that "it has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017."

He will be very lucky to sell tickets for future shows, such is his record for cancelling.

If it's ill-health, I hope he makes a good recovery.

I am not surprised these were canceled. When he was not on the Peach Fest lineup, I figured he was not bouncing back to performing condition. And Gregg LOVES playing live and has performed & toured many times in the last 9-10 years when he should have been resting (so a whole tour cancelation was a bad sign then) . Booking flights for the summer tour dates optimistic I ate to say. I suspect we will not see him on stage again.

Here's to wishful thinking that Gregg is going to focus on cutting a great Muscle Shoals album, spending time with his bride, and resting up for a 50th ABB reunion.

I think it's much more disconcerting that Gregg wasn't at the Butch memorial in Macon. It's easy to understand why someone would cancel a grueling tour, but when he misses a one-off night to honor an old friend and bandmate -- and Macon isn't that far from where Gregg lives now -- you really have to wonder what's up. Gregg has persevered through a lot and let's pray he does it again.

From the looks of him in the last picture posted, he may have had recent surgery.

That's the rumor I've been hearing that he's going to retire from playing live.

If this happens or does not happen, either way I'm grateful that I got to see him perform live both with the Allmans and his solo band more than any other musician.

It must be serious. Gregg is a road dog and would not cancel shows 3 months in advance if it wasn't. The lifestyle takes its toll, and it was only a matter of time. Hope the Southern Blood CD is released soon.

He's been seriously ill, he's had some major surgeries, he's on transplant drugs.

No offense, but I did not expect he would do the BT memorial. Gregg has not been one to show at funerals and memorials since DA died. It is not his thing. That may have had nothing to do with health related issues.

I just read on Steve Hoffman that Gregg has been admitted to hospice.

Is there any word on how he is doing?

Afraid I heard the same thing on Friday, not firsthand but secondhand from a very solid source.

FWIW.
