One of Gregg Allman‘s final contributions to the music community was his series of Laid Back Festivals around the country. With New Jersey, Connecticut, New York, Colorado, and Texas on the books, an Atlanta, Georgia date has just been added. Laid Back Festival will return to Atlanta, GA on Saturday, September 14th at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park. Headlined by Lynyrd Skynyrd, the festival welcomes very special guests, the Gregg Allman Band fronted by Gregg’s son Devon Allman in honor of his father.
Gregg Allman’s last concert appearance was in Atlanta for Laid Back 2016. Devon and the band will play Gregg’s final studio album Southern Blood in its entirety as well as other Gregg Allman favorites. Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band will kick off the festival followed by Bishop Gunn. Stay tuned for more details on the Atlanta event page here.
