Associated Press Associated Press 5/08/2016

Veteran US rocker Gregg Allman has cancelled planned live shows until late October due to "serious health issues".

In a statement released on Friday, the 68-year-old says he's under his doctor's care at a facility. No further details were provided.

Cancelled performances for the longtime keyboard player and vocalist for The Allman Brothers Band include festival appearances, solo shows and a tour with ZZ Top.

Allman will return to the stage October 29 at his Laid Back Festival in Atlanta. After that, he'll play 10 shows at New York's City Winery starting November 6.

In his statement, Allman said he wants to thank his "fans and friends for supporting me while I rest up and focus on getting better and back on the road as soon as I can".
