0

Lynyrd Skynyrd are set to make one last tour. They’ve announced the first leg of the Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour, which will take place this spring and summer.
“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,” guitarist Gary Rossington said. “I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many.”
Singer 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 honor to try and fill in my brother’s footsteps for the past 31 years, keeping the music and his spirit alive.”
The tour will begin on May 4 at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Fla., and conclude Sept. 1 at the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta.
