Lynyrd Skynyrd cancel upstate New York concert due to Covid-19 issues

Lynyrd Skynyrd have canceled an August 19 concert in the upstate New York city of Canandaigua due, in part, to Covid-19 issues.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances and a COVID illness within the Lynyrd Skynyrd band, we are unable to perform this Thursday, August 19 at Constellation Brands Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center,” says the band on social media. “The show has been canceled and will not be rescheduled at this time. Please reach out to your point of purchase location for ticket refunds. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience.”

News of the shutdown follows word that guitarist Rickey Medlocke tested positive for Covid-19, that resulted in the postponement of four dates last week on the band’s Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour.

The group’s next scheduled performance is set for August 20 at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in Bethel, NY.
