Rock legend Gregg Allman revealed that he has been 'given a clean bill of health from his doctors' following a serious illness that caused him to cancel his summer tour dates.

He announced that his first show back will be taking place at the Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado on September 25th during his Laid Back Festival where he will be playing an acoustic set prior to ZZ Top's headline performance.

Allman had this to say, "I just can't wait to get back out there. I've gotten so stir crazy these last few weeks. I feel best when I'm traveling and playing. That's what keeps me going, and there's no better place to start than Red Rocks."

He will be following the Red Rocks performance with an appearance at the Laid Back Atlanta festival on October 29th and then he will launch his annual residency at City Winery in New York with the first of the 10 shows scheduled to take place on November 6th.

Earlier this summer Allman received treatment at the Mayo Clinic for what his camp said was a series illness which prevented him for keeping his summer live commitments. He said at the time, "I want to thank my fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can.

"I've been working hard with my band, my pride and joy, to play our music for everyone. We'll see y'all in October."
