Hometown music legend Gregg Allman is returning to Macon this year for a concert at the Grand Opera House.
Allman, an original member of the Allman Brothers Band, which recorded hits such as Melissa, Ramblin Man and Midnight Rider, has focused heavily on his solo career in recent years. His seventh solo album, Low Country Blues, was released in January 2011.
Tickets for the Dec. 27 show go on sale at 10 a.m. Sept. 13, according to concert promoters Square Peg Concerts. The show is set to begin at 8 p.m. at the Grand in downtown Macon. Ticket prices are $49.50, $64.50 and $74.50 in advance and are available from Tickets.com.
In recent years, Allman has returned to Macon for special appearances.
In April 2010, the Allman Brothers Band performed a 3 1/2-hour concert at the City Auditorium, and in June 2012, Allman signed copies of his autobiography, My Cross to Bear, at The Big House Museum, a mecca for fans of Allman and the band.
