Laid Back Festival feat. Gregg Allman and ZZ Top

September 25, 2016 @ 4:00 pm UTC+0

Gregg Allman is proud to announce the return of the Laid Back Festival, an extraordinary one-day event that was so successful in its first year that it’s now set to take place in five American cities throughout the summer of 2016. The events will be headlined and curated by the legendary Allman.

Named after Allman’s classic 1973 solo debut, the inaugural Laid Back Festival was held last summer at Wantagh, NY’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theater, presented in partnership by Allman, longtime manager Michael Lehman, and Live Nation. Now boasting an expanded itinerary, the 2016 Laid Back Festival will once again feature an eclectic range of artists performing on two distinctive stages, the main “Laid Back” stage and more intimate “Low Country” stage. The latter – which takes its name from Allman’s 2011 solo masterpiece, LOW COUNTRY BLUES – will serve as a special showcase for rising local artists and musicians from every region on the festival tour’s itinerary.

“We had so much fun last year, that it seemed like we should try this in other towns,” said Allman. “So we’re coming back and taking it on the road!”

“Laid Back Festival was one of the highlights of the 2015 Jones Beach season” said Steve Gaber, VP Booking at Live Nation in New York. “It’s a great day of music and friends and we couldn’t be happier to bring the experience into new markets.”  

2015’s premiere Laid Back Festival proved an indisputable success, with New Jersey’s Asbury Park Press declaring it “a crowd-pleasing blend of classic rock along with food and spirits,” while Jambands hailed, “Laid Back filled a void left by the Allman Brothers Band.” The event – which saw timeless performances from Allman, The Doobie Brothers, Bruce Hornsby and The Noisemakers, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and more – was hailed as a crucial new milestone on the increasingly busy summer concert schedule. “Laid Back filled a void left by the Allman Brothers Band,” wrote Relix, “who played Jones Beach most summers from their late-career comeback through 2013.”

An array of unique VIP packages will be available.  For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.laidbackfestival.com.

Gregg Allman is truly among rock and roll’s greatest and most influential artists, his soul-fired and still utterly distinctive voice one of the defining sounds in all of American music. From his founding role in the one and only Allman Brothers Band to his long and storied solo career, Allman has consistently proven himself to be an iconic singer/songwriter and exceptional practitioner of the American blues tradition, both aspects masterfully represented on 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated solo landmark, “LOW COUNTRY BLUES.” Allman has accrued a remarkable list of honors over his five decade career, including the ABB’s 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Allman detailed his brilliant career in 2012’s acclaimed memoir, My Cross To Bear. Now available in both hardcover and paperback, the New York Times best seller chronicles a truly astonishing life and creative journey, all informed by the wisdom and hindsight of Allman today, the survivor of unimaginable loss, alcohol and drug addictions as well as a successful 2010 liver transplant. Allman quickly followed the Allman Brothers Band’s 2014 final concert run with the 2015 release of “BACK TO MACON GA,” a live two disc CD/DVD set capturing Allman and his eight-member band blowing the roof off Macon, GA’s venerable Grand Opera House with a set comprising dynamic blues covers, solo classics like “Queen of Hearts” and “I’m No Angel,” and of course, such ABB favorites as “Melissa,” “Midnight Rider,” and “Whipping Post.” Allman is currently completing work on a new solo album, tentatively slated for release later this year.
