Gregg Allman and Friends

8 p.m. Sunday, January 14. Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard).


Sold out. 314-726-6161.
 Gregg Allman has endured many tribulations through the years, including the untimely deaths of his brother Duane and bandmate Berry Oakley, substance abuse, tabloid headlines, and a nasty public dispute with former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts. But Allman has proved to be a true survivor, and at age 59, he's still singing and playing keyboards and guitar with skill, energy and passion. Now on a solo tour with a band — which includes legendary Muscle Shoals session man Jerry Jemmott on bass, Booker T. and the M.G.'s drummer Steve Potts and the sorely underappreciated keyboard wizard Neil Larsen — Allman is showcasing new arrangements of favorites from the Allman Brothers Band, as well as material from his solo catalog, plus vintage blues and soul covers.
