Following the release of their latest album ‘Bless Your Heart’, The Allman Betts Band announce their May 2021 UK Tour. The dates include concerts in Cardiff Globe (May 7), London Garage (May 8), Manchester Academy (May 9) and Glasgow St. Luke’s (May 10).
A conflagration of influences and invention, confidence and ambition, ‘Bless Your Heart’ captures a vast, panoramic scope throughout a baker’s dozen of modern rock, vibrantly reflecting individual and collective experiences and all drawing inspiration from the band’s symbolic hometown – a place Devon Allman calls “the United States of Americana”. Within the eclectic repertoire are the familiar: stacks of guitars; electric, acoustic, and slide; a throttling, percussive rhythm section. And the fresh: Bassist and singer Berry Duane Oakley’s ABB vocal debut on his original song (“The Doctor’s Daughter”); Devon Allman’s baritone vocal channelling Johnny Cash (“Much Obliged”) and Duanne Betts extending the legendary family legacy of incendiary instrumentals (“Savannah’s Dream”).
If you’re a fan of Southern Rock done right with just a dash of The Grateful Dead it should be quite a spectacle! Tickets from the usual agencies and on line.
