(Press Here) Rock 'n' roll recording artists and globe-trotting journeymen Devon Allman and Donavon Frankenreiter are hoping to make history in 2023. The longtime friends have teamed up for the See It All American Tour to attempt to set the Official World Record for fastest time to play a concert in each of the 50 states, which is currently 50 in 50 days set in 2003.
The concept is simple, but the execution will be brutal as Allman and Frankenreiter seek to complete the challenge in 49 days. To commemorate this special occasion, the two multi-talented artists are releasing a collaborative new single "See It All" and music video. The song will be available on DSPs this Friday, April 14th.
The See It All Tour will launch on August 5th with two shows in one day, first in Maryland and then Pennsylvania. From there, the tour will officially take off bringing these road warriors to places they've never been, at a pace that's never been done, testing their wills at every turn, before wrapping September 22nd in California at a yet-to-be-announced event in the Los Angeles area with hopeful celebrations. Along the way, Devon and Donavon, who will perform a collaborative set with a four-piece backing band, will be joined nightly by rotating support acts: Matt Andersen, JD Simo, Matt Costa, Davy Knowles, Mishka, Jackson Stokes, and Goodnight Texas.
Pre-sale tickets for the See It All Tour will be available Wednesday, April 12th and Thursday, April 13th at 10am local time (pre-sale code: SEEITALL) with the public on-sale commencing Friday, April 14th at 10am local time.

"I've had this idea in my back pocket for the better part of a decade," shares Allman. "50 shows in the 50 United States in 50 days. I think growing up reading the World Record books, it's just always been a fantasy to go after a world record. This undertaking is going to be really difficult, but very rewarding and I really found the perfect co-conspirator in Donavon Frankenreiter. We have been jamming together for years now and are quite simpatico...he is the perfect Evel to my Knievel."
"There's no better way to see it all but by playing all 50 states in under 50 days and I couldn't think of a better friend to do something this crazy with," adds Frankenreiter. "I first met Devon on the Allman Family Revival Tour and we always talked about doing something together. One morning, Devon called me and said he had this crazy idea about breaking a world record. As soon as he said 50 shows in 50 states under 50 days I said 'Yes, let's do this.' And now, a year later, we are ready to see it all...or at least attempt to see it all!"
