Lynyrd Skynyrd will hit the road one last time, on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour, saying goodbye to fans that have supported the band for more than four decades.
"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," Gary Rossington, original and founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, says in a statement. "I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many,"
"We’ve been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans," lead vocalist, Johnny Van Zant adds. "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."
Lynyrd Skynyrd released more than 60 albums throughout their illustrious career, and had numerous hit singles, including "Free Bird," "Sweet Home Alabama," "Saturday Night Special" and more.
Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., the Charlie Daniels Band, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, .38 Special, Blackberry Smoke and Blackfoot, and more, will each join Lynyrd Skynyrd on certain shows.
