The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND has released the dates for six shows they're doing in New York City this October.  Four of the shows are rescheduled dates from some this past March.


Ordinarily, this wouldn't be that notable . . . but in their press release, the band repeatedly refers to these dates as their "FINAL" shows.  They didn't expound on that, but it does sound like they're planning on hanging it up.

If this is the case, the writing was on the wall.  Earlier this year, Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes announced they were leaving the band at the end of 2014 to focus on their own projects.
