I've already written about The Allman Brothers Band cancelling their Beacon Theater performances and even dropping off of Bonnaroo due to Gregg Allman's ongoing recovery from Hepititis C.

Happily, the band say that they'll be back on the road in August. As they did last summer, they'll be touring with Bob Weir's band Ratdog. I saw them at Jones Beach last summer, and they were just ridiculously good; they were also mind-blowing at Farm Aid. They're going to reschedule this year's Beacon run for early 2009 (I don't know if they'll also do the Beacon in the spring, as they have done every year since 1989 or something.

Glad to hear Gregg is recovering well, and I look forward to seeing the Brothers on the road (where they belong) this summer.
