Lynyrd Skynyrd announce farewell tour, and it's coming to Cincinnati

Lynyrd Skynyrd announces farewell tour with show set for HArtford

Starting May 4 and running through September 1, the venerable southern rock band have thirty dates scheduled around the USA with guests on selected dates including Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Charlie Daniels Band, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Blackberry Smoke and Blackfoot. The band took a decade-long hiatus before reuniting for a tour and live album.

After beginning the tour at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Lynyrd Skynyrd will only make one other stop in their home state - May 5 in Tampa. The tour will cross the country throughout the summer over Fridays and Saturdays to give fans one last memorable night of classic American Rock-and-Roll.

After 40 years of touring and recording, Lynyrd Skynyrd is calling it quits.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, whose first album was released in 1973, have featured a different lineup after frontman Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines and more died in a 1977 plane crash.

Johnny Van Zandt added "we've been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans".

The legendary rock band (minus a few original members) will play at Cincinnati's Riverbend Music Center on August 17. "Guitarist Gary Rossington is the only Skynyrd co-founder still playing with the band, though guitarist Rickey Medlocke was briefly part of the group in the early Seventies". Tickets to the Tampa show will go on sale February 2.
