If he had any sense of remorse for his killings, he would have already turned himself in for killing his ex-girlfriend and her unborn baby. I don’t expect this guy to go down without a fight and trying to kill as many others as he can, in the process. I pray for everyone, that no one else is killed or harmed due to this evil suspect. I hope they bring in as many law enforcement officers as possible from all over to get him! And…..stop turning bad people back out on the streets once they go through the court system when they have lists long as your arm of previous serious violent convictions!last_img read more

Dickey Betts Confirms Return Show In Macon, GA, Home Of The Allman Brothers Band

first_imgBack in December of 2017, Dickey Betts announced on his 74th birthday that he’d be returning to the road in 2018 after retiring three years ago. Since then, the founding member of the Allman Brothers Band has announced two performances headlining the beloved Peach Music Festival in July and Florida Jam in May along with new dates in New York and Connecticut. Betts recently added to this list with the confirmation that he’ll perform at the Allman Brothers Band’s iconic home of Macon, Georgia, on May 17th at the Macon City Auditorium during a performance titled “Ear For Music & Friends With Benefits: Dickey Betts.”On February 15th, a number of new Dickey Betts tour dates were announced by Alan Paul—the Allman Brothers Band’s biographer—on Facebook, along with the news that Dickey’s son, Duane Betts, would join his father’s band for these newly announced performances. Paul correctly predicted the Macon, Georgia show date, though, at the time, the venue was still to be determined. Now, as more information about the Macon performance has been revealed, Betts will not only headline the Macon City Auditorium with his own solo project, but also perform and share the bill with the Devon Allman Project—a musical project led by Gregg Allman’s son, Devon Allman, and that also features Dickey’s son, Duane.Tickets for Dickey Betts’ and Devon Allman Project’s performance go on sale this Friday, February 23rd, at 10 a.m. (EST) here.last_img read more
