This past December, founding Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts announced his retirement from the touring life. At that time he indicated that his performance at New York’s The Concert Hall on December 12, which marked his 66th birthday, would be his last such date. “I’m not retiring from playing,” Betts then said in a statement. “I’m sure there will be some great special events that I’ll be at in the future. But for now, I look forward to waking up tomorrow with nothing on my schedule.” However, it appears that the road calls once again, as Betts’ website now reports, “Please keep your eyes peeled for a special announcement coming later this week in regards to some NEW tour dates being added this summer.” Additional details are sure to follow.
