As you have probably already heard, The Allman Brothers Band have cancelled their annual string of shows at the Beacon Theatre this year beacause Greg Allman is still receiving treatment for Hepatitis C and is unable to play. Though they haven’t rescheduled their Beacon Theatre residency yet, they have announced dates for shows at Jones Beach and The PNC Bank Arts Center at the end of the summer. Tickets for those shows go on presale to Citibank cardholders starting on April 28 and public sale May 5.
Although unable to play for fans in New York City this year, the group will resume its touring schedule in August with co-headliner Bob Weir & RatDog. Tickets for shows August 13 in Wantagh, NY (Jones Beach) and August 15 in Holmdel, NJ (PNC Bank Arts Center) go on sale May 3 at 9:00AM Eastern [Buy Presale Tickets on 04/28 @ 10am]. Dates for shows in upstate New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois and Colorado are expected to be confirmed soon.
The band plans on making the 2009 shows their best ever, with special plans to commemorate the group’s 40th anniversary. Confirmed tour dates are listed in Tour Dates below, with more to be scheduled. [Allman Brothers Band Official Website]
