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.
Now, Betts has extended his tour, adding four new dates across May and July. The new tour dates were announced by Alan Paul—the Allman Brothers Band’s biographer—on Facebook, along with the news that Duane Betts will join his father’s band for these newly announced performances.
Ahead of Betts’ performance at Florida Jam on May 19th, he will perform at the Allman Brothers Band’s home base of Macon, Georgia, on May 17th. He will also perform three new dates in July, including Long Island Music Festival on July 15th, Connecticut’s Ridgefield Playhouse on July 20th, and Staten Island’s St. George Theater on July 22nd. He rounds out his announced tour dates with his set at Peach Music Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on July 22nd.
