Credit: Clay Patrick McBrideLynyrd Skynyrd will retire from the road after mounting a final trek, dubbed the Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour.

The tour gets underway on May 4 in West Palm Beach, Florida. The first leg of the outing is mapped out through a September 1 show in Atlanta.

The Southern rock legends will be supported by a variety of well-known guest artists during the tour, including Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, 38 Special, Kid Rock, Charlie Daniels Band, Blackfoot, Hank Williams Jr. and Blackberry Smoke. Opening acts for specific shows will be announced soon.

“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,” says founding Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington. “I’m certain they are looking down from above, amazed that the music has touched so many.”

Adds current frontman Johnny Van Zant, “We’ve been blessed by these great songs and the messages they carry to the fans. It’s been a true honor to try and fill in my brother [Ronnie’s] footsteps for the past 31 years, keeping the music and his spirit alive.”
