Gregg Allman previews new live package

Gregg Allman is sharing a preview of “Midnight Rider” from his forthcoming live package, “All My Friends: Celebrating The Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman.”

The classic track sees Vince Gill and Zac Brown join Gregg at the event, recorded this past January at Atlanta's Fox Theatre.

Due May 6, the one-DVD, two-CD live set features a variety of artists paying tribute to the Allman Brothers legend, including performances by Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Devon Allman, Robert Randolph,
Jimmy Hall, Sam Moore, Keb’ Mo’, Brantley Gilbert, Jess Franklin, Dr. John, Pat Monahan, John Hiatt, Jaimoe, Taj Mahal, Widespread Panic, Trace Adkins, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, Eric Church, Jackson Browne, Zac Brown, and The Allman Brothers Band
with musical direction by Don Was.

Extensive bonus material for the DVD includes 26 exclusive interviews, behind the scenes footage, as well as a special Gregg Allman presentation.

Gregg is recovering from a recent bout of bronchitis, which caused the postponement of The Allman Brothers Band’s final four dates of their residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre.

The band host their 10th annual Wanee Music Festival in Live Oak, Florida from April 8-10.; joining them will be more than 30 acts, including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Trey Anastasio Band, Blues Traveler, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and many more.

In January, the Allman Brothers announced that they will cease touring at the end of the year as they close out their 45th anniversary.
