Heath issues force Gregg Allman off tour

greggallmanGregg Allman has cancelled every tour date from August 12 (Scranton, PA’s Peach Music Festival) to October 16 (Clearwater, FL Jazz Festival) due to what’s being called “serious health issues.”

A statement on Allman’s Facebook said Allman, 68, is currently under care at the Mayo Clinic. Allman plans on returning to tour at his Laid Back Festival at the Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA, on October 29, and all dates after that are still on schedule.

“I want to thank my fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can,” Allman said. “I’ve been working hard with my band, my pride and joy, to play our music for everyone. We’ll see y’all in October.”
