Lynyrd Skynyrd to perform farewell tour

Lynyrd Skynyrd are heading out on a final tour.

They've announce the first part of ther 'Last of the Street Survivors' farewell tour which kicks off in May this year.

“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," guitarist Gary Rossington said. "I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many."

Singer Johnny 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.”

On the tour, Lynyrd Skynyrd will share the stage with friends, including Kid Rock, Bad Company and Marshall Tucker Band.

Lynyrd Skynyrd will release a single called 'The Last of the Street Survivors' to go along with the tour.

Further details will come.
