GREGG ALLMAN PLANS SOLO TOUR

GREGG ALLMAN PLANS SOLO TOUR

Fresh off the road with the Allman Brothers Band, frontman Gregg Allman has lined up a series of solo tour dates that will keep him on the road through the end of this year and into the first part of 2014.

Allman’s website reveals nearly two dozen dates spread across the eastern and southern parts of the U.S. The tour will start in Montgomery, Ala., on Oct. 11, and wind down on Jan. 8, 2014, in Sarasota, Fla. He also has two solo shows scheduled for April at Australia’s Byron Bay Bluesfest.

The 65-year-old Allman also recently told American Blues Scene that he’s planning to start work on the follow-up record to 2011′s ‘Low Country Blues,’ his first solo album in many years. He was supposed to begin recording sessions for the new LP in May with producer T Bone Burnett, but they were postponed.

Allman said he hopes to hit the studio in November. “I always wanted to do a record merely called ‘All Compositions By …’ and just have my name,” he said. “I’d like to do a record where I wrote every one. It’s probably a goal of every songwriter in the world. Do one record that you totally create.”
