Allman was reportedly briefly hospitalized and it was decided that the condition would prevent him from being able to participate in the closing night of the multi-night series.  Warren Haynes broke the news to the audience gathered for Sunday's finale.  Fortunately, Gregg Allman Band keyboard player Bruce Katz was in town to do a guest slot with the band and was able to fill-in for GreggHaynes took over lead vocals on songs during the set usually sung by Allman.
