Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers band had to drop out of several of his shows due to bronchitis. The musician was supposed to perform Friday and Saturday, but was unable to.
Allman is under a doctor’s care and will be performing for the final four shows next week. Fans will have to wait to see him performing with his band. Ticket holders were sent an email telling them that Allman would not be performing, according to JamBase.
The Allman Brothers Band did the show as scheduled, and all remaining shows are set to go on as scheduled. The concerts began at the Beacon Theatre March 7 and are set to conclude March 29. The band is celebrating their 45th anniversary, according to the Associated Press.
Lehman says that Allman, 66, was in good shape until he got bronchitis. Allman previously had a liver transplant in 2010.
William Hurt was set to be in Allman’s biopic, Midnight Rider, but the filming of the movie was put on hold after a tragic accident. During the shooting of the movie, a 27-year-old crew member was killed.
