The Press Release:
Devon Allman is thrilled to announce the fifth annual Allman Family Revival, a celebration of the life, spirit, and music of Gregg Allman, hosted by his son, Blues Music Award-winning Devon Allman and anchored by his group, The Allman Betts Band.

On what would have been Gregg Allman’s 70th Birthday (December 8, 2017), Devon decided to gather his talented friends to pay homage musically. Musicians that had toured with Gregg, jammed with Gregg & inspired by Gregg turned up to throw down. Legends like Robin Zander of Cheap Trick, wunderkind Marcus King, and the Orbison’s, all took part in the inaugural performance, laying the groundwork for The Allman Family Revival to be an annual who’s who of musical talent.

We recently have been adding a lot of KISS updates to the website but they weren’t the fun kind and were instead cancellation and postponement reports as both Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons had contracted the virus and were forced to move the schedules around (seen HERE). Now its time to share the latest news that all is proceeding ahead. Take a look.

Though we’ve already been posting updates from the camp of “The Hottest Band In The World” KISS in terms of the postponements of some of the US Tour Dates for the “End Of The Road” World Tour (seen HERE) and the recently announced rescheduling of the Australian Tour, it was just revealed that additional dates have been pushed back based on their own Demon Gene Simmons contracting the virus.

The Statement:
We are postponing the next four tour dates. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates once announced. More information will be emailed to ticketholders directly.
