Lynyrd Skynyrd expand farewell tour with new US dates

Lynyrd Skynyrd have expanded their ongoing Last of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour with the addition of a spring series of new US concert dates.

Following an appearance at the NHL Winter Classic New Year's Eve Kickoff Concert in Dallas, TX on December 31, the band will return to the stage in Savannah, GA on March 7 as they start to fill in their 2020 live schedule.

A Citi card presale runs from Wednesday, December 4 at 10 am local time until Thursday, December 5 at 10 pm local time, with general public tickets going on sale Friday, December 6 at 10 am local time; for full details, visit lynyrdskynyrd.com.

Launched in May 2018, Lynyrd Skynyrd have already played 100 stops in the US and internationally over the last two years.

"We've said we want to play every venue and market we've ever visited around the world one last time and even some places we haven't, so we get to see all of Skynyrd Nation," says singer Johnny Van Zant. "We are getting close!"

The farewell tour will take original member Gary Rossington joined by Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark "Sparky" Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington, Carol Chase and special guest Jim Horn across the country over the next year, with more international dates to be announced soon.

Last month, Lynyrd Skynyrd released “Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour Lyve!”; the set captures the band in concert during a 2018 show at TIAA Bank Field in their hometown of Jacksonville, FL as part of their ongoing farewell series.
