Rocker Gregg Allman will return to the stage at his upcoming Laid Back Festival in Colorado, weeks after "serious health issues" forced him to scrap a series of tour dates.
The music veteran put all of his gigs up until 16 October (16) on hold in early August (16), after revealing he was under doctors' care at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
He did not disclose what ailed him, but on Tuesday (06Sep16), Gregg announced he was firmly on the mend and set 25 September (16) as the date of his live comeback.
A representative for Allman tells WENN the singer has been given "a clean bill of health from his doctors and has been given the OK to get back to performing live".
He will be joined by guitarist Scott Sharrard for an acoustic set when the Laid Back Festival makes a stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, and the rocker is excited to get back on the road.
"I just can't wait to get back out there," he says. "I've gotten so stir crazy these last few weeks. I feel best when I'm traveling and playing. That's what keeps me going, and there's no better place to start than Red Rocks."
Allman, 68, will also join Laid Back Festival headliners ZZ Top in Atlanta, Georgia on 29 October (16), before performing 10 intimate residency shows at New York's City Winery in November (16).
