Lynyrd Skynyrd with Hank Williams, Jr.
LAST OF THE STREET SURVIVORS FAREWELL TOUR
Tickets On Sale Friday, April 19 at 10am EST
Forest Hills Stadium (ForestHillsStadium.com), the legendary sporting and entertainment venue located in the idyllic Queens, New York neighborhood of Forest Hills, has added a performance by Southern Rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd on their career-concluding Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour with Hank Williams, Jr. on July 14. The current 2019 schedule is attached below.
Lynyrd Skynyrd are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified “Sweet Home Alabama” and self-proclaimed signature song, “Free Bird,” that Rolling Stone said was “easily the most requested live song in existence.” With everlasting hits such as “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “You Got that Right,” and more, it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time.
The tour, Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour, derives its name from their song, "The Last of the Street Survivors" and the band’s fifth studio album Street Survivors that is certified multi-Platinum by the RIAA and includes the Platinum-certified single, “What’s Your Name.”
Tickets to this performance will be available to the general public starting Friday, April 19 at 10am EST. For more information or to purchase, visit ForestHillsStadium.com. Tickets to all stadium events will be available for purchase without service fees at the new Forest Hills Stadium box office, located just outside of the stadium on Burns St., every Friday from 12PM-8PM. The Box Office will open at 10AM on Friday, April 19 for this on sale. Fans can also purchase tickets at Williamsburg’s Rough Trade (located off of the Bedford Ave stop on the L train) during their box office hours, Fridays and Saturdays 12pm-6pm.
Forest Hills Stadium is conveniently located just steps from the E, M, F, R subway trains at Forest Hills-71st Ave as well as the Forest Hills Long Island Rail Road station.
Last year Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Rickey Medlocke sat down with Dan Rather for a candid conversation on The Big Interview during the first leg of their farewell tour. Reflecting on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s enduring legacy and their fans around the world, 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.”
"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," said Van Zant. "so that’s the plan."
The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour marks a big moment for generations of fans, as Lynyrd Skynyrd has been touring consistently since the 90s. The band, that USA Today called the “whiskey-soaked genre's most popular and influential crew,” is ready to rock one last time. The farewell tour will include original member Rossington who will be joined by Van Zant, Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington, Carol Chase and special guest Jim Horn.
