The Allman Brothers Band To Retire From Touring

The Allman Brothers Band

It has been a good run, but the legendary Allman Brothers Band have announced that it will cease touring after 2014. “Relix” broke the news in a recent interview with founding member Greg Allman. “45 years is enough and I want to do something else, anyway. Everyone has their own real good perspective bands,” said Allman.

The Allman Brothers Band Call It Quits

Band members Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks had previously announced that they would leave the band after 2014, so this announcement is not necessarily shocking. Haynes will pursue his solo career and work with Gov’t Mule. Trucks will continue working with the Derek Trucks Band and the Tedeschi Trucks Band–a side project with his wife, Susan Tedeschi.

In the interview, however, Allman certainly left the door open for an eventual reunion. “We may get together every five years and just do one play at a time.”

The Allman Brothers Band have a handful of dates scheduled for this year, including a run at New York’s Beacon Theatre. See below for a full list of dates.
