Their “Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour” features openers and collaborators you’ve come to know and love, and Lynyrd Skynyrd has added some U.S. tour dates you’re going to want to get in line for!

Produced by Live Nation, their 2018 stops on the farewell tour included 50 shows. For 2019, Hank Williams Jr., Bad Company, and Cody Jinks (hailing from Denton, Texas) will be joining in on the fun, scheduled for the recently-announced dates. Tickets go on sale February 8, 2019, at livenation.com. “We’ve said we want to play every venue and market we’ve visited one last time, so we get to see all of Skynyrd Nation, so that’s the plan,” explained Lynyrd Skynyrd lead vocalist Johnny Van Zant.

Shared on the HankJrOfficial YouTube channel, the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, “Tuesday’s Gone,” was covered by Hank Williams Jr. on his “Wild Streak” album. It was the second track on the band’s first album and was originally released in August 1973. It was featured on the soundtrack for the movie “Dazed and Confused,” starring one of our favorite Texas actors and Longhorns advocate, Matthew McConaughey. Speaking from personal experience, prior to that, it dotted the soundtrack of some of our most memorable road trips. Will it be included in the set list for the upcoming “Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour?” That remains to be seen, but fans can most definitely anticipate a show that won’t disappoint!

The tour kicks off in 2019 up in Canada before heading to the U.K. and then on to Europe by the summer. Interesting side note: southern rock sensation Blackberry Smoke will be joining them for their show dates in Germany. But the U.S. stops are the ones we’ve got our eyes on! Taking its name from a song of theirs, “The Last of the Street Survivors” title is from their “Street Survivors” album, which went multi-platinum. With a career spanning four decades and over 60 albums, this band can guarantee that their set list will be impressive. The Lynyrd Skynyrd farewell tour makes its way to Arlington for a May 11 show that’s bound to have you up on your feet, rockin’ out.
