Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced that their farewell tour will take place later this year. The Southern rock legends play an extensive series of dates on The Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour across North America, where they’ll be joined on the road by various artists including Bad Company, Blackberry Smoke, Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr, the Charlie Daniels Band, the Marshall Tucker Band. 38 Special and Blackfoot.
Guitarist Gary Rossington said: “It’s hard to imagine, after all these years, the band that Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins and myself started back in Jacksonville, would resonate for this long and to so many generations of fans.
“I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many.”
Vocalist Johnny Van Zant adds: “We’ve been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans. It’s been a true honour to try and fill in my brother’s footsteps for the past 31 years, keeping the music and his spirit, alive.”
Tickets will be available through the the band’s official website from 10am local time on 2 February. Passes for their show at Mansfield’s Xfinity Centre will go on sale at 11am that same day, while tickets for the Detroit performance will be available from 10am on 3 February.
