It’s Official: Allman Brothers to Stop Touring After 2014

When Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced plans earlier this month to leave the Allman Brothers at the end of 2014, I figured that would be the end of the band. It’s their 45th anniversary, Gregg has solo projects going, Allman and former guitarist Dickey Betts are still at odds (to put it mildly!), the band doesn’t record anymore and plays limited tour dates due to the touring schedules of all the side bands. I thought it was time to call it a career as a band.

Today, Gregg Allman confirmed it. He told Relix magazine that the Allman Brothers would stop touring at the end of the year. He said that 45 years is enough and I want to do something else anyway, adding that the other members all have their respective bands doing well, so it’s time to call it quits.

But he did leave the door open for possible reunions saying “Whose to say? We may get together every five years for a show.”

Allman will continue to tour with his Gregg Allman & Friends Band. Trucks has the Tedeschi Trucks Band with his wife, Susan Tedeschi. Haynes has a solo band AND Gov’t Mule.

It’s been one hell of a ride.
