NEW YORK (AP) - Rock legend Gregg Allman has canceled tour dates from Aug. 26 to Sept. 15 because of a persistent illness.

A statement from Allman’s publicist on Monday says the 63-year-old has an “upper respiratory condition” that will require several days of hospitalization and four to six weeks of bed rest.

Allman underwent a successful liver transplant last year and returned to the road just a few months later.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee canceled the final four dates of his recent European tour because of the same illness. Doctors had hoped the rest would resolve the ailment, but Allman remained sick.

Allman plans to reschedule the canceled dates and hopes to return to the road in late fall.
