Lynyrd Skynyrd Plot 2020 Leg of Farewell Tour

Rolling Stone — Jon Blistein

Lynyrd Skynyrd have added another North American leg to their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour.

The run kicks off March 7th, 2020, at the Martin Luther King Jr. Arena in Savannah, Georgia, and wraps May 8th at the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville, Kentucky. The band also has a previously announced one-off in Forest City, Iowa, June 13th, as well as a newly scheduled gig, July 31st, in Indianapolis, Indiana. Lynyrd Skynyrd will receive support from Travis Tritt and the Eli Young Band on select dates throughout the tour.

Tickets for most shows will go on sale December 6th at 10:00 a.m. local time via Live Nation (the Fresno, Bossier City and Knoxville gigs go on sale December 13th).

News of the 2020 leg comes not long after Lynyrd Skynyrd announced their Lynyrd Skynyrd & Frynds Simple Man Jam: A Family Reunion festival, which will take place August 20th through 24th at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando. The event will feature two Lynyrd Skynyrd sets, a live Q&A with the band, and performances from additional artists. A full line-up has yet to be announced.

Lynyrd Skynyrd launched their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell tour in 2018. Last month, they released a new concert album, Lynyrd Skynyrd: Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour Lyve!, which chronicled their hometown performance in Jacksonville, Florida, on September 2nd, 2018.
