Although Gregg Allman was scheduled to perform a series of shows across November, December and January, he announced Tuesday (November 8th) that he has had to postpone everything due to a vocal injury.

On Allman’s website, he explained the decision, “This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do in a long, long, time. I’ve been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it’s time for me to take some real time off to heal.” He plans on taking several months off in order to fully recover, but will return to the stage in spring 2017.

“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,” he continued in his statement. “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.”

All November dates, which were originally slated to be held at City Winery in New York, have been rescheduled for July. See Allman’s website for more details about how to transfer tickets.

This marks the second time in 2016 Allman has needed to postpone or cancel tour dates for health reasons.
