Gregg Allman had to cut a performance short last night and was taken to a local hospital because of back pain, TMZ has learned. 

A rep for the legendary guitarist tells TMZ he has bulging discs in his back and suffered a flare up 30 minutes before the end of a show at the Beacon Theatre in NYC last night.

The rep says Allman went to a local hospital where he was treated and released. 

The Allman Brothers Band is scheduled to play the Beacon again tonight.

Turns out Allman had to bail on the show tonight, citing another flare up just before showtime.

Gregg Allman isn't a "legendary" guitar player as much as he is a legendary singer, Organ, and piano player. I'd say the late Duane Allman was the legendary slide guitar player. Just saying, TMZ...

Legend, but he does not look well in that picture. I haven't really seen him in years, but he looks like someone that has cancer or something, when they lose a lot of weight. Hope he is ok!

This proves tmz doesn't know **** about good music Greg allman plays a b3 Hammond organ and he has one of the best voices ever. His brother Duane who died 40 years ago or so was the legendary guitar player please stick to just chris brown and Miley Cyrus

As has been pointed out, Greg Allman is not a legendary guitarist. He is howevever once of the s***miest people in the history of rock and roll. His most egregious claim to fame is testifying against a former employee for getting him him drugs. Greg Allman did it to stay out of jail himself.The employee, "Scooter" Harrison ended up being sentenced to 75 years in jail.

Typical slacker crap. If the person is someone who is an actual musician, who's paid a lot of dues over many years to perfect his music, TMZ doesn't know sh*t about him and can't be bothered to check. TMZ, your slackers are looking very bad. Good luck to Allman. He's chosen to live hard and guess he's paying for it now.
