The Allman Brothers Band returning to Atlantic City

3 September 2010

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Trump Taj Mahal along with Live Nation is proud to announce "An Evening with The Allman Brothers Band" in the Mark G. Etess Arena on Saturday, November 13, 2010. Showtime is 8:00 pm, with doors opening one hour prior.

The Allman Brothers have commenced their return to the concert road with select shows confirmed, marking Gregg Allman's first live performances since his successful liver transplant surgery in June.

The iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band – featuring Gregg Allman (vocals and keyboards), Butch Trucks (drums and tympani), Jaimoe (drums), Warren Haynes (vocals, lead and slide guitar), Derek Trucks (slide and lead guitar), Oteil Burbridge (bass) and Marc Quinones (congas and percussion) will be performing in one of two shows south of Boston and including the performance at Trump Taj Mahal's Mark G. Etess Arena in Atlantic City.

The group was forced to cancel a June 26 appearance at Eric Clapton's "Crossroads" festival, as a liver became available for Allman, who has since been recovering swiftly and is excited about getting back on the road. "I'm ready," says Gregg, who spent time in the Jacksonville area after the surgery, before returning to his Georgia home where he has been spending time with his children, family and friends. "I've been itching to play since I got the operation and am glad to be back. Can't thank everyone enough for their help and support."

The southern-rock band was formed in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, organ, songwriting), and supported by Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson. The Allman Brothers Band has won many awards including a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance, 1995 "Jessica," were named by Rolling Stone Magazine's as one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004, as well as individual awards for performances by the band members.
