Peter Frampton, ZZ Top, Jason Isbell and Marshall Tucker Band will hit the road this summer for Gregg Allman‘s Laid Back Festival. The second-annual edition, curated and headlined by the singer-songwriter himself, will travel to five American cities for one-day events. America, Blackberry Smoke, Shovels & Rope, Brothers Osborne, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and Gabriel Kelley will also perform at the fest, which kicks off Saturday, May 7th in Atlanta. 

The Laid Back jaunt will also hit Nashville on Saturday, June 25th; Chicago on Saturday, July 16th; Wantagh, New York on Saturday, July 23rd; and Morrison, Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday, September 25th. Tickets and VIP packages are currently on sale at the fest website

The inaugural Laid Back Festival – named after Allman’s solo 1973 debut LP – was held last summer at Wantagh, New York’s Jones Beach Theatre. This year’s expanded version will feature performances on two stages, the primary “Laid Back” stage and the smaller “Low Country” stage – the latter showcasing rising local artists from each region on the itinerary. The fest will also include over 20 regional restaurants, food trucks, breweries and wineries at every stop.

Allman kicked off his nationwide solo tour April 1st in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. The trek will continue throughout the year, concluding October 7th in Las Vegas.
