Lynyrd Skynyrd bringing farewell tour to Darien Lake — CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT

Lynyrd Skynyrd bringing farewell tour to St. Louis this summer

Tickets are on sale beginning February 2 at 10 a.m.through Live Nation.

The Southern rock legends have announced their Street Survivors Farewell Tour, which marks the end of decades of playing concerts in the US and beyond. Charlie Daniels Band, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, and, unsurprisingly, Kid Rock are among some of the special guests to appear on tour. The first leg of the career-concluding tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off Friday, May 4 in West Palm Beach, FL at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre and will wrap Saturday, September 1 in Atlanta, GA at the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.




Over the past three decades, the current incarnation of the group has toured and recorded a handful of albums, their last, "Last Of A Dyin" Breed', in 2012. Taking over as vocalist in 1987 was Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie's brother.

A plane crash in October 1977 took the lives of Van Zant, Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines, and several of their road crew. Formed in 1964 in Jacksonville, Fla., and originally known as "My Backyard", the band's original member lineup was Ronnie Vant Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington and Larry Junstrom. You can find more information at the band's website.
