Gregg Allman continues to struggle with health issues.  The Oregonian reports that the Allman Brothers Band frontman checked into a hospital on Monday, one day before he'd been scheduled to play a solo gig in Boise, Idaho.  The singer subsequently canceled three concerts -- the Boise show , and upcoming performances were to have taken place Saturday in Spokane, Washington , and Sunday at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon .

Peter Dammann , the artistic director of the Portland festival, told The Oregonian on Tuesday that he'd gotten "a note from [Allman's] management that said, 'We're canceling the whole tour,'" adding, "They didn't give us any specifics on what's happening with Gregg."

It's been a rough year for Allman.  In March, he was stricken with bronchitis, which forced the Allman Brothers Band to postpone several dates of its residency at New York City's Beacon Theatre.  He also canceled two appearances during a brief solo tour of Australia in April.  Gregg also has is facing a number of lawsuits in connection with the fatal accident that occurred in February during the filming of Midnight Rider , a biographical film focusing on his life.

ABC News Radio sent a request to Gregg's publicist for an update on the 66-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's condition but has not yet received a response.
