The Allman Betts Band has postponed a number of their upcoming tour dates as singer/guitarist Devon Allman recovers from an emergency appendectomy.

Initially, the band was forced to postpone three European dates last week as Allman underwent his surgery. Now, the band has announced that they will be forced to reschedule 31 upcoming North American shows in August and September “due to an upcoming surgery and the necessary recovery time.” The announcement also notes that “Devon is expected to make a complete recovery and will be back onstage in October.”

Tickets that have already been purchased will be valid and accepted for the rescheduled dates. Details of the rescheduled dates have yet to be announced.

Following the initial postponement announcement, Allman took to Instagram to thank fans for the support and offer an update on his progress:

Wishing Devon a speedy recovery! We’re sure the Allman Betts Band will be back at it as soon as humanly possible. As Allman explained backstage at The Peach Music Festival last weekend, he hangs his hat on this advice from Stefani Scamardo: “Stay out there. The minute that you go and sit at home someone else is taking your audience.” Watch the clip below:
