Dickey Betts announced in December of last year, on his birthday, (December 12), that he will return to the road for a select group of dates in 2018. As reported in an exclusive interview in the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Dickey said “Everywhere I go fans keep saying they want me to get out and play again ... I think the time is right.” The Dickey Betts Band hitting the road in 2018 will consist of Dickey and son Duane sharing lead guitar duties.
The 2018 concert dates will feature Betts peppering his setlists with songs written by Gregg Allman, whose credits include “Midnight Rider,” “Melissa” and “Whipping Post.” The 23-minute live version of “Whipping Post” from the Allman Brothers Band’s masterful, breakthrough album “At Fillmore East” famously features the dual lead guitar playing of Betts and Duane Allman.
“I think the fans deserve to hear a few of Gregg’s song as well, so I’m pulling out some classics,” Betts said.
