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.

Cher divorced him for the same reasons. His back couldn't keep up.

The best time to pull the "back pain" routine is always RIGHT before or during a performance. Gregg is a master at it....don't let the "Midnight Rider" fool you...again....I got one more silver dollar.......
