Approximately one week ago, Gregg Allman was forced to postpone his book tour in support of 'My Cross To Bear' (released this past Tuesday) due to cardiac testing the rocker was undergoing at Florida's Mayo Clinic. The clinic was looking to determine if additional care was going to be required for Allman relating to surgery he had recently undergone for a hernia.

At the time, Allman released a statement saying “I’ve been working on the book for years and am grateful for all the support I’ve received in putting it together. As soon as doctors give me the thumbs up to go back on the road, I will be heading out onto my book tour and I can’t wait to meet all of my fans.”

Your wait is over, Allman devotees.

Billboard magazine posted an article today stating that the 62 year-old Allman has been given the green light to begin his book tour. So far, Allman's book tour consists of only a half-dozen dates, starting May 8 in Buckhead, Ga. and wrapping up on June 2 in Savannah, Ga.

'My Cross To Bear' is the first novel for Allman, detailing the numerous ups and downs he has lived through over the past 40-plus years. In addition to being available in traditional formats, 'My Cross to Bear' is also available as an Enhanced Ebook, which includes videos, new interviews with Gregg, never-before-seen photos, and more.
