At a concert in Atlanta, Gregg Allman was given a tribute from a line of artists, commemorating both the band the Allman Brothers and the southern rock that would be a huge influence following their heyday during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The rock legend was on stage performing with artists including Jackson Browne, blues musican Taj Mahal, and Vince Gill. He was said to be very humbled from the appreciation from his colleagues, especially when it follows a liver transplant in recent years. Among the well-known songs performed in the show included “Midnight Rider” and “Melissa”, and other guest performers included country stars Martina McBride and Eric Church.

In other music news, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to join Bruno Mars onstage during the Super Bowl halftime show on February 2nd, as announced by the Los Angeles Times. They are already scheduled to perform during the Pre-Super Bowl event in Brooklyn on February 1st, but were invited by Mars himself to appear with him at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The announcement is also expected to be made during the broadcast of the play-off game, where the New Orleans Saints goes against the Seattle Seahawks.
