The Allman Brothers Band’s annual March Madness run at the Beacon ended on a somber note last month, with Gregg Allman sitting out the last show and a half with health issues. However, the legendary jam act will return to the stage this weekend at Wanee and have just announced a pair of Boston shows at the Bank of America Pavilion on August 7 and 8.
The group’s return to Boston will take place just before the kick off of the inaugural Peach Music Festival on August 10 – 12 in Scranton, Penn. Tickets for both Boston shows go on sale Monday, May 7 at 10AM ET through LiveNation.com.
As far as Wanee, for those who can’t make it down to Live Oak this weekend, SiriusXM will simulcast a number of sets live from Spirit of Suwanee Music Park on Saturday. Here’s a look at which sets will be broadcast and which stations will air the performances…
Saturday April 21st:
· 3:15-4:45 Gov’t Mule LIVE on Jam On (Channel 29)
· 5:30-8:30 Furthur LIVE on the Grateful Dead Channel (Channel 23)
· 9:30-12:00 The Allman Brothers Band LIVE on Deep Tracks (Channel 27)
Expect more Allman Brothers Band summer dates to be announced soon.
UPDATE: Another bit of Allman-related and SiriusXM news courtesy of our pal Jon Hochstat. Deep Tracks, Channel 27, will air Town Hall with Gregg Allman on May 3 at 2PM ET. The show will feature Gregg answering questions about his career from an intimate audience moderated by legendary DJ Meg Griffin. We’re hoping fans ask about some of the more controversial aspects of Allman’s career, since this is basically a promotion for his new book, My Cross to Bear, which addresses such topics as his relationship with Dickey Betts and the circumstances of the group’s mid ’70s breakup.
