Gregg Allman and the Doobie Brothers Announce Tour
. Gregg Allman and the Doobie Brothers have announced that they will be teaming up for a short coheadlining tour that will take place in late summer in a handful of cities in the United States.
The tour will be kicking off on August 19th at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, MA and wrapping up on September 4th at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY.
The tour will include seven stops in all in cities across the eastern U.S. with stops in New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and North Carolina.
Gregg Allman had this to say about the tour, "I've loved The Doobie Brothers since I can remember. Those guys can play! And I love their songs -- so many classics. I'm honored to tour with my old pals. We always have a good ol' time."
The Doobie Brothers' Tom Johnston says, "We've played shows with Gregg and The Allman Brothers over the years, starting in 1974. It's always been something I've looked forward to and enjoyed for the high energy and soulful experience that it is!"
Patrick Simmons adds, "Gregg Allman is a national treasure, and it's such a pleasure to be doing shows with one of our oldest friends. Not only is Gregg one of the finest musicians you could ever hope to hear, he is also one of the nicest people I know. His music, as well as ours, was born out of that great blues tradition, so I think this show is going to be a treat for you blues freaks! We're so looking forward to these gigs, and I know there's bound to be some jammin' going on at some point."
