Gregg Allman announced Monday that he will not be touring in 2017 and that his previously announced concerts scheduled for June have been cancelled.
According to Allman's official website: "It has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017". This included shows in Macon, and the rescheduled residency at The Winery in NYC. No reason was provided for the cancelled dates.
Health issues in recent years have prevented Allman from touring at full capacity.
"This is the hardest thing I've had to do in a long, long, time," Allman said in a statement after calling off his winter tour. "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."
It's also unclear about the release of Allman's solo album "Southern Blood". As of the end of January, he was putting the final touches on the release.
