Back in December of 2017, Dickey Betts announced on his 74th birthday that he’d be returning to the road in 2018 after retiring three years ago. Since then, the founding member of the Allman Brothers Band has announced two performances headlining the beloved Peach Music Festival in July and Florida Jam in May along with new dates in New York and Connecticut. Betts recently added to this list with the confirmation that he’ll perform at the Allman Brothers Band’s iconic home of Macon, Georgia, on May 17th at the Macon City Auditorium during a performance titled “Ear For Music & Friends With Benefits: Dickey Betts.”
On February 15th, a number of new Dickey Betts tour dates were announced by Alan Paul—the Allman Brothers Band’s biographer—on Facebook, along with the news that Dickey’s son, Duane Betts, would join his father’s band for these newly announced performances. Paul correctly predicted the Macon, Georgia show date, though, at the time, the venue was still to be determined. Now, as more information about the Macon performance has been revealed, Betts will not only headline the Macon City Auditorium with his own solo project, but also perform and share the bill with the Devon Allman Project—a musical project led by Gregg Allman’s son, Devon Allman, and that also features Dickey’s son, Duane.
Tickets for Dickey Betts’ and Devon Allman Project’s performance go on sale this Friday, February 23rd, at 10 a.m. (EST) here.
