This past December, founding Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts announced he will be returning to the road after retiring in 2014, and now more details of the outing—which will feature his son, guitarist Duane Betts—have been revealed.
In a Facebook post, ABB biographer Alan Paul noted five new dates—along with Betts’ already announced slot at July’s Peach Fest in Scranton, PA—from Betts’ manager David Spero. See the dates below.
The first date comes May 17 in the Allman Brothers Band’s home base of Macon, GA, though a venue has not been specified. From there, Betts heads to Boca Raton, FL’s Florida Jam on May 19. In July, Betts seems set for the Long Island’s Great South Bay Music Festival, which coincides with the date listed but not quite the name. Before Peach Fest, Betts will also head to the familiar confines of Connecticut’s Ridgefield Playhouse on July 20 and Staten Island, NY’s St. George Theater on July 21.
Stay tuned for more tour information from Betts.
