The Allman Brothers Band won't tour after this year

The Allman Brothers Band won't tour after this year

Listen to The Allman Brothers Band on iHeartRadio

The Allman Brothers Band is wrapping up its road work. 

Frontman Gregg Allman tells "Relix" magazine "this is it -- this is the end of it," and the group's 2014 dates will be their last -- for now.  He explains that "45 years is enough," and he wants to "do something else." 

But Gregg isn't shutting the door completely, admitting that they might "get together every five years and just do one play at a time."  Allman adds that he's not going to stop touring, but will keep playing shows with his Gregg Allman & Friends ensemble. 

The end of the Allman Brothers touring coincides with the departures of guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, who announced a few weeks ago that they'd be leaving the group at the end of the year. 

Next up for the Allman Brothers Band is their annual Beacon Theater residency in New York City.  They'll launch the run -- which has been expanded to 14 shows -- on March 7th.  Tickets for the four new dates -- March 25th, 26th, 28th, and 29th -- go on sale this Friday.
