Two Southern rock legends will be hitting the road together this summer as Gregg Allman and the Doobie Brothers will be linking up for a late summer tour of the eastern United States. The tour kicks off on August 19th in Boston at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion and continues through early September.
The pair have toured together a number of times over their long careers, and both Allman and the Doobie Brothers seem excited to head back on the road again. “I’ve loved the Doobie Brothers since I can remember,” Allman said. “I’m honored to tour with my old pals. We always have a good ol’ time.”
“Gregg Allman is a national treasure, and it’s a pleasure to be doing shows with one of our oldest friends,” Doobies guitarist Patrick Simmons said. “Not only is Gregg one of the finest musicians you could ever hope to hear, he is also one of the nicest people I know. His music, as well as ours, was born out of that great blues tradition, so I think this show is going to be a treat for you blues freaks! We’re so looking forward to these gigs, and I know there’s bound to be some jammin’ going on at some point.”
