Yes, this is big news. Dickey Betts of Allman Brothers Band and Great Southern fame will have a limited tour in 2018. The information is all over social media! It’s fitting that the announcement was made on his 74th birthday.
As many of Dickey’s fans know, he retired 3 years ago and has been enjoying life in Sarasota. From what we hear, Dickey will be playing a specific group of venues with the dates to be announced. This is a very special announcement for his local fans.
We all hope that Dickey will play locally since he was raised right here in Bradenton, Florida. The Robarts Arena would be a great place to perform. It looks like there will be some Allman Brothers songs as part of the concert along with many other great Dickey Betts songs. The band members will be announced soon, and we understand that his son Duane will be a part of it.
