Any word on who might be filling in for Gregg at the Peach?

Seems rather pathetic and mickey mouse that no announcement seems to have been made.

Very disappointed to see Gregg cancel but he is obviously not well. I spend more than I normally would to get better seats to see Gregg along with ZZTop for their co-headlining tour and so far, not a peep about a replacement . Ticketmaster customer service did say email about refunds for this show will be forthcoming once they get something from the promoter. Whoever steps in, if its not the same caliber as Gregg I may apply for a refund.

Pathetic and Mickey Mouse????
His cancelation was just announced a few days ago. They're probably doing the best they can scrambling to find a worthy replacement. Bands' summer schedules are already booked months in advance. You'll probably b*tch about the replacement anyway.

They book a bunch of older musicians any of whom could easily get sick and miss the festival. When dealing with older people (65+ years old) you need back up plans, always.

You have no idea if I'd bitch about the replacement. Who the fu$k are you to make that comment?

If this site still gave awards this might rank high in many categories.

Looks like the Peach Festival app removed Gregg and the Allman Incident from the Artist schedule section. No word on replacement yet. Feel better soon Gregg!!{{{{{{{{heal}}}}}}}}}}

Hahaha, right?? If you think concert promoters are booking "back up artists", you really probably don't know much about the industry. **** happens, people scramble to fill in and more times than not, people step up and help out. You think NOLA Jazz Fest had Warren Haynes Band on the back burner just in case Levon Helm passed away? C'mon man. Show some class.

Actually, I own a record company as a sideline and deal with several older artists. We/I have faced these problems many times. Emergency operations, chest pains on the afternoon of a gig, ... The list goes on. I am close personally with all of the musicians and feel terrible when something goes wrong for them, just like I feel terrible for Gregg.

Obviously one can't double-book acts, but a good contingency is a good rolodex and a knowledge of who might be available last minute. We have managed to find fill-in musicians on a few hours notice and fill-in bands on 1-2 days notice. Obviously I am not dealing with things on the same level as the Peach, but they have lots of helpers to deal with this. Also, Peach and Wanee have dealt with this before and not just with Gregg. I sort of recall a problem a couple of years ago with Bob Weir. Both festivals seemed to do a good job on each of these occasions.

In 15-20 minutes my buddy (who is coming with me to the Peach) and I had a pretty good list of several decent name acts who have clear public calendars and might be able to play. We came up with several more who would fit in lower on the bill, but could allow SCI and the Mule to get bumped up into the headline slots.

I was just checking Facebook and the Forum here to get a better handle on whether I am being unreasonable about the Peach's efforts to cover for Gregg.

I read on July 25 that Gregg's sit-in with TTB didn't go well. I didn't see it, but read that several members of this forum were a little worried about Gregg.

I also checked on Facebook and found that Gregg's first concert cancellation came out on the afternoon of July 29. This raised concerns on my part since I was going to the Peach mainly to see Jaimoe's band, Les Brers and Gregg. Given how serious his health issues have been, I was immediately worried about his well-being and whether he would make any of his scheduled gigs. I would have assumed that the Peach organizers would have been on alert at this point.

Now here we are 10 days later and not a lot of info from the Peach folks. I'm just a guy who owns a small record label in Canada but that seems like an awfully long time to me. Several of you seem to know more about the music business (and it is a business; just look at the ticket price) than me. Is 10 days too short a period time to expect an announcement from the Peach Festival?

With Weir they just had Trey play a second night. Also had a makeshift Dead tribute band play. All the artist were already on the lineup.

since you responded as if I wrote the first comment...let me clarify--i was joking around about how ridiculous the comment was on people over 65 needing backup..always? There used to be awards given for posts back in the day on this site.I'm simply pointing out the stupidity of ageism by the ignorant...

A few years ago we went to the Harvest festival in Fredicton NB (great festival by the way) Anyway Gregg was to do two nights. He had to cancel, i believe thats when he had his transplant. They replaced his two shows with Buddy Guy and Levon Helm (who at the time wasn't in any better shape really) However Harvest festival had about 2-3 weeks to get replacements.
I would suspect they will bump shows up and possibly see who may be open to some kind of super jam.

Wasn't Gregg set with String Cheese billed as the Gregg Incident? Well it's just another form of the Gregg Allman Indicent.
