night and burn it up!”

tour derives its name from their new song, “The Last of the Street
Survivors” and the band’s fifth studio album Street Survivors that is certified multi-Platinum by the RIAA and includes the Platinum-certified single, “What’s Your Name.”

The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour marks a big moment for generations of fans, as Lynyrd Skynyrd has been touring consistently since the 90s. The band, that USA Today called
the “whiskey-soaked genre’s most popular and influential crew,” is
ready to rock one last time. The farewell tour will take original member
Rossington joined by Van Zant, Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael
Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington,
Carol Chase and special guest Jim Horn across the country over the next
two years.

The Southern Rockers are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified
“Sweet Home Alabama” and self-proclaimed signature song, “Free Bird,”
that Rolling Stone said was “easily the most requested live
song in existence.” With everlasting hits such as “Simple Man,”
“Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “You Got
that Right,” and more, it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time.

Stay tuned for future announcements and specific tour line-ups in your markets.

About Lynyrd Skynyrd

Original members Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary
Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the band in 1964, originally known
as My Backyard, the band changed to its famous name in the early 1970s,
and became popular in the Jacksonville, FL area, where the original
members were from. They signed with Sounds of the South Records in 1972,
and released their self-titled disc the following year. The album that
featured “Free Bird,” arguably the most-recognized single in the
Southern Rock genre, has sold more than 2 million units since its
release. Later down the road the band recorded iconic tracks “Sweet Home
Alabama” and “What’s Your Name.”

The band’s story took a tragic turn in October 1977 when a plane crash
took the lives of Van Zant, Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines,
and several of their road crew. The band took a decade-long hiatus
before reuniting for a tour and live album, Southern by the Grace of God. Since then, the band has toured and recorded extensively, with their most recent release being Last Of A Dyin’ Breed.
The band’s current line-up includes original member Rossington, Johnny
Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone,
Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
