(hennemusic) Gregg Allman has cancelled all remaining 2016 live dates just days after missing a pair of shows due to a bruised vocal cord. Allman backed out on November 6 and 7 appearances at New York's City Winery as he attempted to recover from the injury, giving fans refunds while his band played both nights for free; now, he has cancelled the complete 10-show residency with the group playing free again on November 9 and 10 as a gesture to fans for their support.

"This is the hardest thing I've had to do in a long, long, time," says Allman. "I've been on the road for 45 years because I live to play music with my friends for my fans. As much as I hate it, it's time for me to take some real time off to heal."

Other dates expected to be affected include December 30 and 31 shows at the Lucas Theatre For The Arts in Savannah, GA, as well as some early 2017 appearances in January.

The City Winery shows in New York have been rescheduled for July 2017. Allman plans to take several months off to focus on his health so he can return to playing live later in 2017.

"Not making a show is a really hard decision for me because I want to play so bad, but it's also hard on my partners and fans who make plans to be with me," he explains. "I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I'm so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them. That means I'm going to have to wait until I'm feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn't working for us all." Read more here.
