Thread: Gregg cancelling 2017 tour dates?

Charlesinator - 3/13/2017 at 06:53 PM

I just saw on Facebook that Gregg is cancelling at least the Macon date. This is from GrandMacon.com. Sorry I don't know how to link.

The Grand is sad to report that Gregg Allman’s concert dates scheduled for June 2nd, 3rd, 5th, & 6th at the Grand Opera House in Macon, GA have been cancelled along with the entire 2017 tour.

The Grand has begun the refund process for those who had purchased tickets for the dates.

This is really not good news. I keep Gregg in my prayers but he's not in the best health.

I'm really glad I did not get tickets for those shows, or buy plane tickets and a hotel room for multiple nights.

Currently posted on Gregg's site:


GREGG CANCELS TOUR DATES


It has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017. For those of you who purchased tickets for shows in June, contact the ticket outlet from where you purchased the tickets for a refund.


Not good. This is obviously a concern but given the proximity of this announcement to Gregg just getting married, I am more than a little worried.

Stay well Gregg. Sending healing thoughts and thanks.

This news seems disconcerting, however he may just want the time to ....tour the planet with his new bride....check off some of his bucket list items, etc,.... Not all musicians are Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson who want to be on the road, all the time. I say good for your, Gregg. If it is health related, he must need the time off. Take it and get well. I'm hoping it's the former. Either way, we all love you and wish you the best.


robslob - 3/13/2017 at 10:55 PM

Very disappointing news. Without theorizing too much, one would have to assume that his health is just not real stable right now. My concern is that he turns the corner more than me getting to hear him live again, although that is always something I look forward to.


benulliman - 3/13/2017 at 10:56 PM

Maybe he just wants to spend time with his new wife


gina - 3/13/2017 at 11:00 PM

Grieving Butch. He needs time off.


fender31 - 3/13/2017 at 11:52 PM

It has got to be something very serious if he is canceling shows 3 months before hand.. I hope he enjoys everyday of the rest of his life..


nebish - 3/14/2017 at 02:52 AM

Thanks for everything Gregg. Appreciate ya. All the best.


ranasakawa - 3/14/2017 at 08:51 AM

Would be nice to know what is going on. I have to cancel yet another trip to USA for this!
I'm destined never to see Gregg live as he cancelled his only ever Melbourne Australia show, then the Allman Brothers broke up then he cancelled yet another tour I was going to see.
Hope the man is ok.

Agree. If I had been so trusting as to pre-book tickets for a GA show, I would expect more than a bald statement that "it has been determined that Gregg will not be touring in 2017."

He will be very lucky to sell tickets for future shows, such is his record for cancelling.

If it's ill-health, I hope he makes a good recovery.

hotlantatim - 3/14/2017 at 12:56 PM

I am not surprised these were canceled. When he was not on the Peach Fest lineup, I figured he was not bouncing back to performing condition. And Gregg LOVES playing live and has performed & toured many times in the last 9-10 years when he should have been resting (so a whole tour cancelation was a bad sign then) . Booking flights for the summer tour dates optimistic I ate to say. I suspect we will not see him on stage again.

You nailed it buddy! Heart & spirit is broken these daze.


islalala - 3/14/2017 at 01:58 PM

Here's to wishful thinking that Gregg is going to focus on cutting a great Muscle Shoals album, spending time with his bride, and resting up for a 50th ABB reunion.


Delawhere - 3/14/2017 at 07:14 PM

I think it's much more disconcerting that Gregg wasn't at the Butch memorial in Macon. It's easy to understand why someone would cancel a grueling tour, but when he misses a one-off night to honor an old friend and bandmate -- and Macon isn't that far from where Gregg lives now -- you really have to wonder what's up. Gregg has persevered through a lot and let's pray he does it again.


pops42 - 3/14/2017 at 07:24 PM

From the looks of him in the last picture posted, he may have had recent surgery.

That's the rumor I've been hearing that he's going to retire from playing live.

If this happens or does not happen, either way I'm grateful that I got to see him perform live both with the Allmans and his solo band more than any other musician.


jerrygriffis - 3/17/2017 at 10:25 PM

It must be serious. Gregg is a road dog and would not cancel shows 3 months in advance if it wasn't. The lifestyle takes its toll, and it was only a matter of time. Hope the Southern Blood CD is released soon.


WaitinForRain - 3/18/2017 at 07:22 PM

He's been seriously ill, he's had some major surgeries, he's on transplant drugs.

WaitinForRain - 3/19/2017 at 06:33 PM

No offense, but I did not expect he would do the BT memorial. Gregg has not been one to show at funerals and memorials since DA died. It is not his thing. That may have had nothing to do with health related issues.


RPOZ51 - 4/23/2017 at 05:08 PM

I just read on Steve Hoffman that Gregg has been admitted to hospice.

Is there any word on how he is doing?


berkhath - 4/23/2017 at 05:28 PM

Afraid I heard the same thing on Friday, not firsthand but secondhand from a very solid source.

I posted this over on the Steve Hoffman forums as well.

I agree that Chank Middleton is a great source for all things Gregg, but I just hope "doing fine" means something more along the lines of this is just a horribly incorrect internet rumor vs he's not suffering due to hospice being involved.

The ominous is the silence, it always speaks loud.

I want a PR release.... Gregg tan and smiling... Saying Hey and we're taking it easy on the beach here. Been writing songs and healing.... wanted to let you all know all the talk is wrong.

But that doesn't come..... some lukewarm ambiguous cryptic words from others that add grayness......

The silence is sad and a part.... Pray is the time methink.....

deepest prayers going out to Gregg who has brought so much to my life....


WaitinForRain - 4/24/2017 at 03:34 PM

Gregg went through a lot in the years since Low Country Blues to bring us his music.

I have been very fearful of bad tidings given the tour cancellations - more than months in advance. I thought his marriage might have been a way for him to take care of his lady should 'something' happen. I have been fearful that with the loss of Mama A, and then Butch, that it might erode his desire to to give it one more try.

The focus on hospice is comfort and quality of life, that is something. That means an end to aggressive and invasive medical interventions. He may yet emerge from it, people do. He is medically fragile and medically complex.

One more try could easily be the title of his book.

Send healing vibes!!

I think this is the most telling.Especially when nothing was mentioned.


Marley - 4/24/2017 at 05:35 PM

Hospice doesn't necessarily mean one is at death's door either. It means the focus is on keeping the patient comfortable because there's no expectation of a cure or recovery. And who knows if any of this is true. But obviously there hasn't been any good news about Gregg's health for a long time now and it's easy to believe he's in a bad way. It's already been a rough year for the ABB family and I'm wishing the best to Gregg and those around him.

The way I understand it is that palliative care is for when a person has a terminal illness and is not yet advanced enough to kill the patient whereas hospice care is when the terminal illness has progressed far enough that literally nothing can be done except to try and make the patient feel no pain. If this is the case, one could assume GA has been receiving palliative car since he cancelled the tour (for arguments sake) and has now been admitted to hospice care.

It should also be noted that William Westhoven claimed a guitarist who "once played for" Gregg has confirmed the Hospice admission on his private twitter account.

It should also be noted that Shannon Allman has made her instagram account private as of 9AM this morning. Odd for a social media consultant to make one of her accounts private, considering that is her livelihood. Just a few of my thoughts...

I don't think anyone is arguing. I think the ABB community and beyond is trying to ascertain if Gregg has two months or two days. Given he is a hero to many of us, that time frame really matters.

musicmann - 4/24/2017 at 07:09 PM

There is Relix article that just published and an article from 97x WXLP confirming the hospice buzz. What bothers me is the fact that rumors such as these if not true need to be publically squelched immediately. The silence from Greggs camp is deafening.
I hope its not true but also know that where there is smoke there is fire.......

Marley - 4/24/2017 at 07:27 PM

Unless they have some really solid confirmation they're not sharing, and it doesn't sound that way, that's borderline irresponsible. I think the rumors are probably true, but sites with a lot of readers shouldn't spread rumors.

I just posted in the other thread but - from his fb page: A message from Gregg: “Hey everyone. I just wanted y’all to know that I’m currently home in Savannah resting on my doctor’s orders. I want to thank you for all the love that you are sending. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Keep Rockin’ “

Zambi - 4/24/2017 at 09:15 PM

Don't know why they can't shut this down with an update to the home-page of his web-site and elsewhere saying the rumors are bunk. Instead we have his manager telling Variety "via a representative" and the manager "through his publicist" denying the rumors of hospice care. Doesn't seem too difficult for a PR firm to figure out how to clear the air.

WarEagleRK - 4/24/2017 at 09:22 PM

As I posted in one of the other Gregg threads...

The wording is still super vague. The yahoo article says he's not "in a hospice", but you can get hospice care at home. Both of my parents did when they were in their last months. The hospice nurse came once a day to check on them and give them medication.

As always any communication with this band/Gregg is always vague, possibly intentionally vague in this instance. Of course the internet media today doesn't do any critical thinking or researching they just want to get the news out first and not accurately. That just feeds to the rumors.

Obviously this is a private matter, so they don't have to tell us anything. Hopefully this means he's not as bad off as what was being reported, but it still isn't a clear update.

Good points...I was going to post that many people receive hospice care at home.

It is a private family situation. I think most of just want him to be alright.

Never hurts to pray for anyone.


Marley - 4/24/2017 at 11:10 PM

Seconding the points above: they don't deny that he's receiving that kind of medical care or that his situation is very serious. But they also don't owe us any updates, especially if time might be short. His family and the people closest to him are the only ones who really need to know.


WaitinForRain - 4/25/2017 at 06:16 AM

Hospice care is initiated via when the
best, educated guess of the MD is that the patient has 6 months or less
to live and aggressive medical measures are suspended

People can and do get discharged from hospice care and
go on living. It isn't the usual, but it happens.

FWIW something like 90% of MDs would not avail themselves
of the end of life, aggressive interventions they are trained
to offer to patients.

Rusty - 4/25/2017 at 01:08 PM

Too much conjecture and speculation here.

Gregg underwent an organ transplant about 10 years ago. I am positive that he's received the finest treatment since then, but an organ transplant generally means the recipient is living on borrowed time. If anything, this should remind us all that life is temporary. Nobody gets out of here alive.

As the last living member of my immediate family, the word "hospice" makes my heart skip a beat.

At the same time, the providers of hospice care are nothing short of angels here on this earth.

As someone else suggested, when a person is placed on hospice care, it usually just means that the doctors don't have a cure for whatever aiis the patient. It is not a "two minute warning" nor does it suggest that there is any set or specific period of time left in the patient's life. My mom had hospice care for a year before she passed.

Beyond all of this - we don't know for a fact that Gregg has been placed on hospice or not.

As I said earlier - this is a private and personal matter for Gregg and the Allman family. We should all respect his privacy while wishing him peace and comfort.


robslob - 4/25/2017 at 01:55 PM

Let's not forget something: Gregg is a huge musical icon, especially with baby-boomers like myself, and that's who controls the major media outlets.

If the hospice rumors were true, don't you think it would be all over CNN, Yahoo, Fox News, etc., etc.? Don't go with a rumor emanating from relix.com or 97x.com.

Rumors get started when either someone close to Gregg or a nurse tells one person and everything starts slowly leaking out. Look at the carefully worded releases. It was a denial without actually denying anything.

I honestly don't think it would be all over those places until the day he passes, and then it would be just a couple of brief articles or mentions. The media has become lazy and likes the story handed to them so they can report it first and then check the facts later. Likely the only reason it was addressed by Gregg's people was because it was starting to get legs beyond the rumor sites. Let's face it Gregg isn't a Bowie/Prince level superstar so on the sad day (hopefully well into the future) that he does pass it will not get the coverage that it deserves. He hasn't been a mainstream celebrity since the 70's. Sadly it's likely if one of those news networks does a short piece on him, it will be about drugs, Cher and music (in that order) and Ramblin Man will play in the background.

As everyone is saying, it is a private issue but they did choose to address it and make it public and in the way they addressed it it only added more opportunity for speculation. More mismanagement from Gregg's reps, which as Rob Johnson alluded to earlier in one of these threads isn't anything new.

Here is hoping that it is only a horrible rumor, no matter what is going on I wish healing and good vibes upon him.

I am sure all of those places and many more have reached out to Gregg's management for details, and they would report on this if it were confirmed to their satisfaction. The fact that they aren't reporting it shows it hasn't been confirmed, not that it isn't true. I wish everybody with an audience held themselves to that kind of standard, but they never have and the web makes it easy to blast rumors to a bunch of people.

In an effort to add a little levity and to be fair, if ABB fans waited for official confirmations we would not have known 2014 was to be their last year until they announced the October Beacon run.


bird72 - 4/25/2017 at 04:13 PM

An announcement of dire situation would bring a circus and cars on the street and flower bouquet mountain at the driveway and more...... so nothing can be read into anything........ and it gets very imaginative at best to even try, and a wrongness for me of guessing potential doom. I do know the human mind can be a huge power in living, as strong as any med, so extending and willing one's time on earth is very possible.

I have issue with whoever "announced" all this in the first place. There is no reason to say that if it is not your place to say it, that is a man's life you are Facebook experting about. The only reason I can see to be the news-bearer, hot-scooper involves ego driven stuff. What is this experts say now? "Whoops" or holding tight, not that his inside track stuff matters.


Marley - 4/25/2017 at 04:13 PM

Ha, true. Confirming stuff takes time!


hotlantatim - 4/25/2017 at 04:48 PM

Good point Bird72.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with Gregg's statement yesterday. It certainly isn't an example of mismanagement. The rumor really took off on Monday and they and addressed it later the same day.

I think it's clear that one doesn't take a year off for health reasons and generally come back strong (unless its for a major surgery like the transplant.) My prayers go out to Gregg and his family during this difficult time. In a sense we are all under hospice care; some of us hopefully have a longer time frame than Gregg.

An announcement of dire situation would bring a circus and cars on the street and flower bouquet mountain at the driveway and more...... so nothing can be read into anything........ and it gets very imaginative at best to even try, and a wrongness for me of guessing potential doom. I do know the human mind can be a huge power in living, as strong as any med, so extending and willing one's time on earth is very possible.

I have issue with whoever "announced" all this in the first place. There is no reason to say that if it is not your place to say it, that is a man's life you are Facebook experting about. The only reason I can see to be the news-bearer, hot-scooper involves ego driven stuff. What is this experts say now? "Whoops" or holding tight, not that his inside track stuff matters.


This is probably the best post i have read on this thread.

There is nothing more personal than your health. We do not have the "right" to be advised of Gregg's status, and he has no obligation to keep us informed. Relix or anyone posting rumors of his hospice care may do so for commercial reasons, but it shows a total lack or respect for Gregg as a person.

The best we can (and should do) is offer our prayers and support, without regard to whether the situation is dire or not.

Very well stated Alan. Prayers and positive thoughts to Gregg regardless.
