Allman Brothers Cancel Beacon Shows

The Allman Brothers' annual run at New York's Beacon Theatre has been cancelled to allow for Gregg Allman's recovery from hepatitis C treatment. This year's 15-dates had been originally scheduled for March but had to be postponed due to Allman's illness. "New York's a second home to us. We love playing there and are as disappointed as anybody not to be able to get there this time," Allman said. The shows have been added to their 2009, 40th anniversary tour.
