After passing heart tests conducted at The Mayo Clinic, Gregg Allman will begin his postponed book tour.

The Allman Brothers Band co-founder had delayed the tour after experiencing arrhythmia following recent hernia surgery related to his 2010 liver transplant.

Publicists say Allman underwent tests at the Jacksonville, Fla., clinic last Friday and was cleared, according to

While his new memoir, My Cross to Bear, came out on May 1, the 62-year-old keyboard player and singer will start the tour May 8 in Atlanta. Stops include Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member's new memoir chronicles the ABB's rise to fame, his own personal struggles with drugs and women and his brother Duane's death.

In an unrelated injury during the band's annual residency at New York's legendary Beacon Theatre, Allman left the stage during the second set of a March 25 show because of bulging discs in his back, according to the group's website.

[Allman] had a painful flare up 30 minutes before the end of the second set at the Beacon, which forced him to leave the stage, the website said.

The book tour in support of the memoir will go on as planned, as doctors have found no serious problems.

In addition to his book tour, The Allman Brothers Band recetly confirmed their annual summer tour

The string of East Coast and Midwest dates will kick off at the All Good Music Festival in late July and come to a close at the Peach Music Festival in August.

The Allman Brothers Band will tour with legendary guitarist Santana for most of the run, though moe. will open for the group in Atlanta and Lynyrd Skynyrd will co-headline two dates in North Carolina. The Allman Brothers Band will also offer two more intimate evening with shows in Boston.

As this is the first time The Allman Brothers Band and Santana have co-headlined a summer tour, the blues-rock band from Macon, GA, and the Black Magic Woman guitarist are more than familiar with each other.

According to Relix Magazine, Santana sat in with the ABB during one of their reunion shows in 1986, while Lynyrd Skynyrd co-headlined a tour with the band in 2004 but, surprisingly, the two bands never collaborated onstage.
