In 2018, Lynyrd Skynyrd announced they would embark on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. The career-concluding farewell tour logged over 50 stops by the end of the year.

Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Rickey Medlocke spoke with Dan Rather on The Big Interview during the first leg of the 2018 farewell tour. Reflecting on Skynyrd’s enduring legacy, Rossington told Rather, “It takes a long time to finish a farewell tour when you’re like us, ‘cause we’ve played everywhere… I keep jokin’ it’d take ten years to do the farewell tour.”

On February 4, the southern rock icons announced the 2019 edition, again produced by Live Nation. Skynyrd will be joined for select dates by special guests including: Bad Company, Cody Jinks and Hank Williams Jr.

The farewell tour begins 2019 in Canada with one of the most celebrated musicians in Canadian history, Randy Bachman. The two-time inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame is one of the few artists to hold the distinction of topping the charts in two different bands: “American Woman” with the Guess Who and “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” with Bachman‐Turner Overdrive.

The band will also be performing in the U.K. and Europe this summer, joined by English rock band Status Quo for U.K. dates and Southern rock band Blackberry Smoke for dates in Germany.

The tour derives its name from the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, “The Last of the Street Survivors” and the band’s fifth studio album Street Survivors.

The farewell tour features 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.

The legendary rockers are best known for such hits as “Sweet Home Alabama,” signature song, “Free Bird,” and such songs as “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” and “You Got that Right.”
