Gregg Allman, one of the forefathers of Southern rock, will be honored at a star-studded benefit concert on January 10 at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, The Associated Press reported today. The biggest names on the bill include The Allman Brothers, Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave fame), Taj Mahal, Warren Haynes and Eric Church. This concert will be filmed and put out next year.
Allman, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, will also be saluted by many other artists during this 'who’s who of music' night. Additionally, Jackson Browne, Natalie Cole, John Hiatt, Martina McBride, Pat Monahan of Train and Trace Adkins will also perform. And if that’s not enough, others will also be announced between now and January 10. For those that want to buy tickets, these will be on sale November 1 at the Fox Theatre box office.
The leader of the all-star backing band will be famed record producer Don Was.
