Gregg Allman cancels shows due to 'serious health issues'

NEW YORK (AP) " Gregg Allman has canceled planned live shows until late October due to "serious health issues."

In a statement released Friday, 68-year-old Allman says he's currently under his doctor's care at a facility. No further details were provided.

Canceled performances for the longtime keyboard player and vocalist for The Allman Brothers Band include festival appearances, solo shows and a tour with ZZ Top.

Allman will return to the stage Oct. 29 at his Laid Back Festival in Atlanta. After that, he'll play 10 shows at New York's City Winery starting Nov. 6.

In his statement, the rocker said he wants to thank his "fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can."
