Gregg Allman cancels 2017 live schedule

Gregg Allman has cancelled his live schedule for 2017.

“It has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017,” reads a statement on his official website. “For those of you who purchased tickets for shows in June, contact the ticket outlet from where you purchased the tickets for a refund.”

No details were provided for the reason behind the cancellations, which included performances in Macon, GA., Atlanta, GA. Chattanooga, TN, Robinsonville, MS, and a 10-show residency at City Winery in New York City in July that was rescheduled from last fall due to a vocal injury.

“Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it’s also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me,” Allman explained last November. “I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I’m so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them.

"That means I’m going to have to wait until I’m feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn’t working for us all.”

Last summer, Allman cancelled 28 tour dates and checked into the Mayo Clinic to address some “serious health issues.”

The music icon has battled through a series of health issues in recent years: in 2007, he contracted Hepatitis C, underwent a life-saving liver transplant in 2010, cancelled live performances in 2011 due to an upper respiratory condition that resulted in lung surgery, and entered rehab in 2012.
