Heads Up! This article is 3 years old.

If you recall, The Allman Betts Band were scheduled to perform last month at the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion until the show was suddenly postponed along with 30 other North American dates following the emergency appendectomy of member Devon Allman.

It was a bummer for those waiting to see the band deliver the goods, but there is good news.

Allman has made a full recovery and is ready to hit the road alongside bandmate Duane Betts. Luckily for us, Fort Wayne is still on their itinerary.

On Friday, Feb. 7, The Allman Betts Band will perform at the Clyde Theatre along with special guests JD Simo and Jackson Stokes. Come out and feast your eyes and ears on this outstanding act featuring the bloodline of a couple of music legends Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts.
