When the Dixie Dregs made it known that they were reforming for a tour featuring an early lineup that recorded their first widely-distributed album, 1977’s Free Fall, one of the first dates announced was a March 3rd show at Center Stage Theater in their adopted hometown of Atlanta. That show quickly sold out, but now that the full tour itinerary (more or less) has been announced, the band has chosen to add another Atlanta show, closing out the tour with a show at Center Stage on Saturday, April 28th. Tickets for that show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 8th.
The extensive nationwide tour – with more dates possibly to be added – also includes a March 2nd date at Bell Auditorium in Augusta, the Georgia city in which the Dixie Dregs based themselves for much of their early existence.
“The tour is the result of the overwhelming requests we’ve received from a loyal audience of diehard Dregheads, and new fans who have never seen us perform live but discovered the band through (guitarist) Steve (Morse)’s membership in Deep Purple, or Rob (Morgenstein) as the drummer for Winger,” says Dregs bassist Andy West. “We can’t wait to play for them all.”
