The Allman Brothers Band announces 2012 summer tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd

Until 2010, The Allman Brothers Band had played the Walnut Creek Amphitheater in Raleigh every year since it opened in 1991, but Gregg Allman's health problems ended that streak. Greg Allman came to Cary solo in 2011, but his year the band will be back in Raleigh when they hit the road on their summer tour.

They'll play Walnut Creek (the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion) with fellow southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd on Saturday, August 4. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 5 via the big ticket outlets for $26 to $66.

I went to the Allman Brothers / Lynyrd Skynyrd show at Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion in Raleigh on Saturday August 4th, 2012. Does any one know who played before Lynyrd Skynyrd went on? It was just one guy and he played a few covers but a lot of original music. I really enjoyed his performance and was hoping to find out who he was so I could find some of his music. If anyone knows please reply...
