Gregg Allman Calls Off Remainder of Summer Tour Due to Respiratory Infection

Gregg Allman will have to lay low for a while before he can get back on the road to support his ‘Low Country Blues’ album.

The upper respiratory infection that resulted in Allman canceling four June shows in Europe hasn’t cleared up. So that means he’s pulling the plug on the rest of his North American concerts that were scheduled from late August to mid-September.

Allman is expected to be hospitalized for at least a few days and also spend four-to-six weeks at home in bed.

In recent years, Allman has battled hepatitis C, and on July 27, he and the rest of The Allman Brothers Band participated in a fundraiser for Tune in to Hep C held at the Beacon Theatre in New York.

Allman plans to reschedule some of his called-off summer shows for late 2011. His next scheduled concert is Dec. 31 in Oklahoma.
