Concert to hit the Fox Theatre this summer

Blackberry Smoke is honoring the music of its hometown region with the “Spirit of the South Tour: A Celebration of Southern Rock and Roll.”

The Atlanta-based band will be joined by The Allman Betts Band, The Wild Feathers and original Allman Brothers Band member, Jaimoe. Every show will conclude with all of the acts collaborating on stage (some surprise guests are expected).

The show will land at the Fox Theatre Aug. 8. Tickets, which start at $29.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. March 6 via www.foxtheatre.org.

Blackberry Smoke is also teaming with The Allman Brothers Band Museum at The Big House in Macon to create a mobile museum including archival ABB items and an appearance by Jaimoe at each tour stop.

Ticketholders will receive free access to the mobile museum and $1 from each concert ticket will benefit The Big House.

Blackberry Smoke recently returned to the studio with producer Dave Cobb to work on their next album, which includes a song with Jamey Johnson. The band also spent time at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon to create new renditions of several songs with ties to the studio and city.

Look for a feature on the Atlanta Music Scene about The Big House Museum in Macon on March 4, as well as coverage of the March 10 Allman Brothers Band 50th anniversary concert in New York.
