Gregg Allman has been given a clean bill of health from his doctors and has been given the ok to get back to performing live. He chose the iconic Red Rocks as the perfect place to start given all the history he has with the venue with both the Allman Brothers Band and his solo work, and will now return to the stage on September 25th for a performance at his own Laid Back Festival there. Allman will perform an acoustic set with his lead guitarist and music director Scott Sharrard before fest headliners ZZ Top.
“I just can’t wait to get back out there,” said Allman. “I’ve gotten so stir crazy these last few weeks.
I feel best when I’m traveling and playing. That’s what keeps me going,
and there’s no better place to start than Red Rocks.”
Allman’s performance at Laid Back Red Rocks will be his only performance of summer 2016. After that, he’ll appear at Laid Back Atlanta on October 29th and the 10 rare and intimate club dates for his
annual residency at City Winery in New York beginning November 6th.
