Lynryd Skynyrd continues their farewell tour with this stop in Queens NY at the Forest Hills Stadium.
With the news about the upcoming Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival being somewhat up in the air based on reports that its been cancelled (discussed HERE) and then a counter statement by its founder that it will still happen (discussed HERE), its nice to see a brand-new music festival sending out some news. This is a bonafide Hard Rock and Classic Rock event and something that has a lot of artists that I am curious about so read more about it down below the logo. Enjoy.

The Press Release:
Last year Southern Rock icons, Lynyrd Skynyrd, announced that, after a career that has spanned more than 40 years and includes a catalog of more than 60 albums with more than 30 million units sold, they would embark on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the career-concluding farewell tour logged over 50 stops by the end of 2018.
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.”
Lynyrd Skynyrd brings their “Farewell Tour” to Jones Beach and will be joined by Peter Wolf.
