Concertgoers in Macon got two Allman concerts for the price of one.

Gregg Allman hit the stage at the Macon City Auditorium on Friday night, only minutes after his son, Devone Lane Allman, warmed up the crowd for his old man.

"It's just a good feeling to be working with your pop," said the younger Allman, 25, whose band is called the Dark Horses.

His dad, 50, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 as part of the Allman Brothers Band, one of the Southern rock pioneers. Gregg Allman and Friends are touring this winter to publicize their new CD, "Searching for Simplicity."

Although the elder Allman wouldn't say whether a father-son performance was planned, Devon Allman said it wouldn't be unexpected.

"He came out and jammed with us last time," he said.
