Allman Brothers Band & Lynyrd Skynyrd Tour Together for Special Limited Dates
Posted by: Lana on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 11:35 AM
First Time in History These Legendary Acts Hit the Road Together


Due to an overwhelming demand from their audiences, the Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd will tour together for the first time this fall at seven performances. These concerts will run from October 1 in Raleigh, NC through October 10 in San Antonio, TX, with an opening act TBA. Both groups will do full concert sets, with Lynyrd Skynyrd hitting the stage followed by the Allman Brothers Band each night. The tour promises to be as memorable as the time the two iconic acts were on the same bill at the Georgia Jam June 1, 1974 at Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta.

Of the tour, Gregg Allman said, "The Brothers and Skynyrd on the same stage has been a fan's dream a long time coming, proving that the road goes on forever." Lynyrd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington says, "When our band first got together, we were inspired by the Allman Joys and Hour Glass. It's hard to believe that this will be the first time we've toured together. I can't wait to hit the road with them." Johnny Van Zant added, "This is an American tour that's long overdue. Both of our bands have lived through plenty of hard times, but we're still doing what we love: making music for the fans."

The Allman Brothers Band -- Gregg Allman, Buth Trucks, Jaimoe, Warren Haynes, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge and Derek Trucks -- are touring in support of their new live album "One Way Out" (Peach/Sanctuary Records) as well as "Live at the Beacon Theatre" (Sanctuary Records) a platinum-certified DVD shot at last year's annual string of shows in NYC. They will also share the stage with several other acclaimed musicians this summer, including The Dead, Chris Robinson, String Cheese Incident, Los Lonely Boys and Little Feat.

Lynyrd Skynyrd-- Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals), Billy Powell (keyboard), Rickey Medlocke (guitar), Hughie Thomasson (guitar), Michael Cartellone (drums), Ean Evans (bass)--followed up 2003's "Vicious Cycle" CD with the newly released "Lynyrd Skynyrd Lyve" double live album (released June 22 on Sanctuary Records) and a companion DVD. Recorded before 17,000 fans last year at the AmSouth Amphitheatre in Nashville, the CD and DVD feature many classics from their albums that have sold over 25 million copies. They are currently headlining a U.S. tour.

The Allman Brothers Band/Lynyrd Skynyrd dates are as follows:

Fri 10/01/04 Raleigh, NC ALLTEL Pavilion
Sat 10/02/04 Charlotte, NC Verizon Wireless Amph.
Tue 10/05/04 Memphis, TN Mud Island

I am very glad to see the ABB touring well into October...but, I for one am not that impressed with pairing of the Brothers with Skynyrd. I personally believe it takes away with what the Brothers are doing. After all, it is their 35th anniversary! And to spend part of it on the road with a band that has many members of other bands as it does Skynyrd just seems downright silly to me. Oh well, I am sure it will be a "hot ticket" and it will make lots of money for everyone involved...thank goodness we have the FOX RUN this summer...Eat A Peach---unclejon75

Even though I am a casual fan of L. Skynyrd, the Allmans have always been in a different class - no comparison. I really don't even think the Allmans should wear the "southern rock" (whatever the f__ that is) label.
Skynyrd though seems to revel in that, Allmans revel in bluesy tunes.
I'm just glad they are still adding dates....WHAT ABOUT CINCINNATI?
It's been like 9 years in a row - what happened? Come Back!
Summer just ain't the same without the A.B.B. comin' 'round.

I'm happy as hell The Brothers are finally hitting Texas again. How come these dates aren't posted on the venue's websites yet? Anyone know?

You're a fool. The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd are two of the greatest bands that ever existed. Skynyrd did not choose the band members to die; and they felt they had to carry on with their music. Skynyrd and the Brothers are differently musically...and as Ronnie Van Zant said many years ago "Southern Rock is a dead label...just hype for the press. We don't play like Wet Willie or the Allman Brothers. Southern Bands are different." How is this taking away anything for the 35'th anniversary of the Brothers. These are two great bands and for you not to give Skynyrd it's due is downright foolish.

I think this will be cool, Allman's celebrating 35, Skynyrd celebrating 30, and it's only 7 dates over the course of 10 days...seems to me like this will make a lot of fans of both bands pretty happy.

The only thing that could make this scenario any better would be for Gov't Mule to be there too!!!!!!

No word, the only show with an opener is the chicago show.

I agree with the two bands touring together. However, I wouldn't agree if there was a huge tour. Seven days seems reasonable. Hope y'all have a great time! Enjoy! -Mike
