Lynyrd Skynyrd kick off their farewell tour

Music 07/05/2018

Lynyrd Skynyrd have began their 'Last of the Street Survivors' farewell tour.

On May 4, the tour kicked off in Florida and continues across North America before heading back to Florida for one last show on September 2.

Gary Rossington, the only remaining orginal member of the band recently revealed that due to numerous issues with his heart they'll be calling it quits.

"That's why I was calling it a farewell tour: I don't know if I'll be here," he said. "I don't want to just say, 'Well, we're never going to end,' because I don't want to die and then it end that way – which is a heavy thing to talk about, but I have to."

The band released a documentary, If I Leave Here Tomorrow, at SXSW two months ago. Rossington admitted that seeing their numerous triumphs and tragedies on the screen was an emotional experience. "I see all the memories and they’re alive; they’re like jumping beans in my brain. It’s weird," he said. "I won’t be shy to say I cried a few times — you can’t not, if you were part of it, you know? My daughters were all crying. They made me cry: ‘You never told us about this stuff, Daddy!’"
