VIDEO: Gregg Allman previews forthcoming live album

Gregg Allman is sharing video of “One Way Out” as a preview to his forthcoming release, “Live: Back To Macon, GA.”

Due August 7, the project captures Allman and his solo band live in concert on January 14, 2014 at the city’s Grand Opera House, a 1,000 seat venue that was built in 1884.

The singer was joined by guitarist Scott Sharrard, bassist Ron Johnson, keyboardist Ben Stivers, drummer Steve Potts, Allman Brothers veteran Marc Quinones on percussion, saxophonists Jay Collins and Art Edmaiston and Dennis Marion on trumpet.

The band was also joined by special guest and Gregg’s son, Devon Allman.

"Macon has a very special place in my heart," says Gregg. "To go back there and play this show was heavy, and to be on stage there with Devon, made it even heavier. The whole thing made me very proud."

The live record features a mix of solo tunes, Allman Brothers Band tracks and covers.

Allman will launch a summer tour at the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, TN, on June 12, and he’ll be joined by The Doobie Brothers for some dates late in the trek.
