The Allman Brothers Band plot quick summer course
The Allman Brothers Band will follow up their second annual Peach Music Festival will a few weeks of East Coast dates before summer's end.
The iconic outfit, currently comprised of Gregg Allman (vocals/keys), Butch Trucks (drums), Jaimoe (drums), Warren Haynes (vocals/guitar), Derek Trucks (guitar), Oteil Burbridge (bass) and Marc Quinones (congas/percussion), will begin the road work with two intimate evenings (8/20-21) in Chicago.
Steve Winwood will open six concerts, beginning Aug. 23 in Darien Center, NY, and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals will take over for him at the Sept. 2 show in Alpharetta, GA, and finish out the tour, which closes Sept. 7 in Wantagh, NY.
"This will be a good little run," Allman said in a press release. "We've always loved Steve and we've been listening to a lot of Grace's stuff, so I imagine we're going to have a bunch of fun together."
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees celebrated their 43rd anniversary last year.
