Lynyrd Skynyrd Add European Dates To Farewell Tour

Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced European tour dates for their Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour, with support acts from Status Quo and Blackberry Smoke.

The band is currently on the North American leg of the Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour. They will play nine dates across the UK and Europe in June next year.

Blackberry Smoke will support on shows in Germany, while Status Quo will open for the UK shows.

Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, November 9, at 9am GMT.

Speaking about the farewell tour, founding member Gary Rossington said: “It’s hard to imagine, after all these years, the band that Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins and myself started back in Jacksonville, would resonate for this long and to so many generations of fans. I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many.”

Lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant added: “We’ve been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans. It’s been a true honour to try and fill in my brother’s footsteps for the past 31 years, keeping the music and his spirit alive.”
