Allman Brothers Band Confirm Final Tour Dates
June 3, 2014
One of the biggest Southern rock bands of all time have now given their fans a final chance to get their hands on The Allman Brothers Band tickets after announcing a farewell run of shows for this fall.
The legendary Georgia outfit, who confirmed back in January that they were retiring from the live stage, will say goodbye with a six-night residency at their second home, New York’s Beacon Theatre, a venue they have played an astonishing 232 times since 1989.
Kicking off on October 21, the tour includes four dates that the band were forced to reschedule from their previous Beacon Theatre stint back in March due to frontman Gregg Allman’s battle with bronchitis, alongside two added shows on Oct 27 and 28. Allman Brothers Band tickets are expected to go on sale any time soon so be sure to keep checking back on TicketIQ for the latest updates.
Those with Allman Brothers Band tickets for their recent 2014 performances enjoyed a career-spanning set which included a mixture of hits (“Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” “End Of The Line”) and fan favorites (“Midnight Rider,” “Les Brers In A Minor”) as well as covers of Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” Blind Willie McTell’s “Statesboro Blues” and T-Bone Walker’s “Stormy Monday.”
The two-time Grammy winners will also appear at a handful of festivals this summer including their very own Peach Festival in Scranton on 14-17 August, Arrington’s Lockn’ Festival on September 7 – four-day passes for which are available on TicketIQ at a get-in and average price of $431 – and New York’s Mountain Jam on June 8 (3-day passes $345/$345, 4-day passes $334/$356), the latter of which will see the group perform their 1969 self-titled debut and 1970 follow-up Idlewild South in their entirety.
Gregg Allman will also hit the road with his solo group this summer for dates at Las Vegas’ Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort on June 21 ($80/$150), Lincoln’s Thunder Valley Casino on Jun 28 ($58/$160) and Spokane’s Martin Woldson Theatre at the Fox on July 5 ($66/$119). While Derek Trucks, who alongside fellow guitarist Warren Hayes will leave the band following their live commitments, is touring with Tedeschi Trucks Band, with the Jun 17 show at Sterling Heights’ Freedom Hill Amphitheatre the lowest get-in and average price at $28/$84.
Tickets are now available for these dates and for a full list of upcoming shows, check the list at the bottom of this post.
