Two more concerts have been added to the Allman Brothers Band‘s fall tour plans. Originally unveiled with a three-night run in Boston, MA, the November itinerary now also includes stops in Upper Darby, PA, and Atlantic City, NJ.
At present, the Allman Brothers’ calendar opens with a November 11 performance at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, and continues with a November 13 event at Etess Arena in Atlantic City. These dates, in addition to the previously announced November 18-20 stand in Boston, are part of an intimate “Evening With” venture that the band has planned for the year’s end.
Public onsales for the Tower Theatre show began today, August 20, and tickets are priced from $49.50 up to $125, according to Live Nation. Meanwhile, tickets for the Etess Arena concert go on sale September 11 and are priced at $49.50 and $69.50, according to the venue’s Web site.
Tickets for the Orpheum Theatre stand went on sale last week. Those shows appear to be hot sellers, as recent searches on Ticketmaster.com returned only a limited number of single tickets.
The mid-November tour is the first for the Allman Brothers crew since founding member Gregg Allman underwent a liver transplant in June. The veteran singer and musician was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2007 and his treatments for the disease occasionally caused concert cancellations and postponements.
But in the weeks and months since his transplant, Allman’s recovery has been described as “swift” on the Southern rock band’s official Web site. In a statement, Allman described himself as ready to tour again, saying, “I’ve been itching to play since I got the operation and am glad to be back.”
