The Allman Brothers Band Postpones Remainder Of NYC 'March Madness' Run
The Allman Brothers Band have postponed their four remaining Beacon Theater performances in New York City, due to Gregg Allman’s bout with bronchitis. Allman was forced to sit out of Friday and Saturday night’s shows (March 21st and 22nd) due to his condition.
All of the band’s upcoming "March Madness" dates -- Tuesday, March 25th; Wednesday, March 26th; Friday, March 28th; and Saturday, March 29th -- will be rescheduled, with the band saying in a statement: "As a result of Mr. Allman’s illness, the Allman Brothers Band is unable to perform at the level to which they aspire." All ticketholders should retain their tickets, which will be honored for the soon-to-be-announced rescheduled engagements. For the ticket holders who would rather refunds, they can be collected at the original point of purchase.
A while back, Gregg Allman explained to us how the Allmans and the Beacon just seemed to gel into something bigger than simply a band playing a concert hall: "It wasn't planned to happen this way. I think we just played it and enjoyed it. I like it down there -- I like playing there, I love the people. They're all so devoted. I've played there almost face-down drunk and just got through the night, and now I don't play like that anymore. But we're still there and we're still playing, and hopefully we're still bringing happiness into a lot of people's hearts, because there's been some dark days lately."
