Lynyrd Skynyrd Extend Farewell Tour
Southern rock stalwarts Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced a second leg of shows in their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour, which kicked off May 4.
The slate of 22 additional dates starts with a Sept. 22 performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, where the band will appear on a bill with Justin Timberlake, Jack White, Carrie Underwood, Mariah Carey, Jason Aldean and others. It's scheduled to end with the Southern Rock Cruise, which will take place from Jan. 6-12.
"This farewell tour has already been the perfect end to an incredible run and we are not even halfway through the tour yet,” says Gary Rossington, guitarist and sole remaining original member. “There is still lots of road to go and lots of fans to see one last time.”
This might come as something of a surprise for ticket holders for the band’s Sept. 2 show at EverBank Field in their hometown of Jacksonville, Fla., which since the tour’s inception had been billed as their last-ever concert.
Still, more Skynyrd is better than less, and quality special guests also make for an entertaining evening. As with the first leg of the tour, the band will share the stage with a number of other acts, including Kid Rock, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Hank Williams Jr., Charlie Daniels Band, Blackfoot and Blackberry Smoke.
Tickets for the second leg of 2018 shows go on sale to the general public starting June 15 at 10AM local time at LiveNation.com. You can see a list of the new dates, as well as the previously announced shows, below.
