The Allman Brothers Band plan special Boston shows

, Staff

After missing out on the summer concert season, The Allman Borthers Band have revealed plans to return to the road this fall. The shows will be the band’s first since frontman Greg Allman underwent a successful liver transplant surgery in June. The group will perform three consecutive shows at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston from Thursday, November 18 through Saturday, November 20. Tickets for each of the shows, which range in price from $66.50 to $151.50, go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

“I’m ready,” declared Allman in press release. “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 iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band comprised of 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 Quiones (congas and percussion), was forced to cancel a June 26 appearance at Eric Clapton’s “Crossroads” festival in Chicago when a liver became available for Allman. The band last performed in Massachusetts last summer at the Comcast Center as part of a co-headliner with Widespread Panic. Derek Trucks has remained busy touring with his own band and with Susan Tedeschi, while Haynes has been touring with Gov’t Mule.
