Lynyrd Skynyrd is continuing their long goodbye to their fans with their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. The legendary band just announced a round of dates in the United States, with Hank Williams, Jr., Bad Company and Cody Jinks joining the tour on select shows.
"We’ve said we want to play every venue and market we've visited one last time, so we get to see all of Skynyrd Nation," lead singer Johnny Van Zant said of the tour. "So that’s the plan."
Lynyrd Skynyrd previously acknowledged they would keep playing until everyone all across the globe had heard them one more time.
"When you say farewell tour, you've got to understand what that entails," guitarist Rickey Medlocke told PopCulture.com. "You just don't do the United States and call it a day. You've got to realize this band has toured all over the world, and you've got fans all over the world, so if all of the sudden we did it just for the states, what are the people in the rest around the world going to think? 'Well they snubbed us.' We don't want anybody to feel like they're left out."
Lynyrd Skynyrd has spent five decades together, which is why they are determined to keep traveling until they feel like they have seen all of their fans one last time.
"Next year we're going all the way across Canada," Medlocke revealed. "We're going all over Europe, I think a couple of times. We've got to make it to South America. We've got to make it to New Zealand, Australia, Japan, and then back here to the United States to finish up spots that we didn't get to this year. So, we've got a ways to go. I mean, anybody that thinks this is it, they need to look deeper into it because you just can't do that to the rest of the fans around the world."
