Gregg Allman’s Funeral Plans Have Been Released—Here’s How You Can Participate
Per Allman’s request, the attire will likely be kept to blue jeans and, at the very dressiest, sports coats.
The plans to lay Southern rock legend Gregg Allman to rest have been revealed by his manager Michael Lehman. It will take place Saturday, June 3 at 1pm
The funeral will be closed to the public, but fans hoping to pay their respects are asked to line a mile-or-so-long motorcade route between Snow's Memorial Chapel and Rose Hill Cemetery on Riverside Drive in Macon, Georgia. Allman will reportedly be buried next to his brother, Duane, and his late bandmate Berry Oakley in a private service after the funeral.
“The family is hoping to keep this between 75 and 100 people,” Lehman told the Macon Telegraph on Tuesday. He also shared that, per Allman’s request, the attire will likely be kept to blue jeans and, at the very dressiest, sports coats.

“No suits,” Lehman added.
Allman’s oldest son, Devon told Billboard he hopes to plan a memorial concert to celebrate his father’s life on Dec, 8—what would have been his 70th birthday.
“I just want to make sure that his music lives forever,” he said, “and is treated with respect and integrity.”
