50 Shows in 50 States in Less Than 50 Days

Devon Allman and Donovan Frankenreiter are at the halfway point of an insane tour that could break a world record: “This is for bragging rights”

BY THE TIME you read this, Devon Allman and Donavon Frankenreiter will be just about halfway through an attempt at breaking a world record of playing 50 shows in 50 states in 50 days — the kicker being that the duo will aim to complete the task in 49.

“If everything goes well, we should be sitting on the record by September 22 — we are road dogs and this is for bragging rights,” Allman, the son of the late Gregg Allman, tells Rolling Stone. “But, more importantly, this is a call to arms to inspire people to travel. Go to the next county, go to the Grand Canyon. Leave your known surroundings and go find yourself.”
