As many classic rock bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd announced their farewell tour. The tour will be called “Street Survivors Farewell Tour”, named after the 1977’s classic album of the same name, that was the last one before the tragic incident with Skynyrd airplane, that killed members of the band, including the vocalist Ronnie Van Zant.
The shows announced will take place this spring and summer.
Read what guitarist Gary Rossington said:
“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. I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many.”
Johnny Van Zant current vocalist and younger brother of the late Ronnie Van Zant, said:
“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.”
Throughout the tour, the southern rock band will share the stage with many other classic bands like Kid Rock, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Hank Williams Jr., Charlie Daniels Band, Blackfoot and Blackberry Smoke.
With the tour, Lynyrd Skynyrd also announced that they will release a single called “The Last of the Street Survivors”.
