Lynyrd Skynyrd Announce UK, European Farewell Tour Dates For 2019
Blackberry Smoke provide support for the European dates with Status Quo taking over in the UK.
Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced that they will be bringing their farewell tour to the UK and Europe next summer.
The band are currently on the North American leg of the Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour – and they’ve now revealed they’ll play nine dates across the UK and Europe in June next year. Blackberry Smoke will support on the German dates, while Status Quo will open for the iconic Alabama outfit on the UK shows.
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, 9 November at 9am GMT, while a full list of the dates can be seen below.
Speaking about the tour earlier this year, 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 added: “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.”
