Hey there sweet family,

I just received this update:

The Allman Brothers Band announced today that they are postponing their annual run of 15 shows at New York Cityís Beacon Theatre set for May 5-24, with rescheduled dates TBA. In addition, they have also cancelled their upcoming performances at the Wanee Festival that they host every year in Florida (set for April 11-12, Wanee will continue as planned despite the fact that the Allman Brothers Band will not be appearing). For the past six months, founding member Gregg Allman has been receiving scheduled treatments for Hepatitis C, a virus that, with these treatments, has become curable in recent years. The treatments so far have been successful and the virus has been eradicated from his system.

However, the recovery time from the side effects of the treatment are taking longer than originally projected. Since the Allman Brothers Band are known for exhilarating and exhausting concert performances they donít want to give fans anything less than they have come to expect; so the band members made a group decision to delay the first round of dates. ďIím getting better but Iím still tired,Ē says Gregg. ďI need to be at 110% to do the shows the way we do them. I canít tell you how much I appreciate the support and understanding my Brothers and our fans have given me.Ē

The Wanee Festival featuring Govít Mule, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschiís Soul Stew Revival, moe., Levon Helm and others will indeed take place April 11-12 in Live Oak, FL, despite the Brothersí cancellation. As for other Allman Brothers Band dates, a 12-concert jaunt planned for August, including two that have been announced so far (8/16 in Boston, MA and 8/23 in Camden, NJ), will go on as scheduled. The rescheduling of the Beacon Theatre run and additional fall shows will be announced soon. Gregg and the Allman Brothers Band appreciate the ongoing support they have always received from their fans and look forward to seeing them this summer. The road goes on foreverÖ

###

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana

The good news is that Gregg is recovering, even if slower than expected, recovery is a good thing.

God Bless and Continued healing to Gregg.

Gregg,

Take all the time you need in getting well. If the band doesn't play this year, then we'll understand. You need to take care of your "health issues" first, and no one should fault you for doing so. To do know that healing thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Mucho love and healing vibes going out to Gregg and the boys. Sorry to hear he is/was sick, but thrilled to know he's beating the dragon.

I'm glad Gregg is placing his health first and wish him health and strength to complete the TX. And I agree totally with Bird72, there is nothing better than a celebrity coming forward in public about an important health issue- it will help a lot of other folks.

Now how about a month of Mule and DTB for the Beacon???

What exactly 'chaps your ass'.

He's sick. And trying to get better. What does he owe you? Get over self and be happy he is trying to care for himself.

No Beacon for a while? Now I'm really thinking about Wanee! Even sans the ABB - this will be an incredible festival! Let's all pull together for Gregg!
