On Tour: Lynyrd Skynyrd UK Dates

Following their short run of June UK shows, iconic southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd have today announced a short November tour in the UK, calling in at Gateshead, Norwich and London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.

Originally formed in 1964 and with a line-up consisting of original member Gary Rossington plus Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke and Michael Cartellone, Lynyrd Skynyrd are regarded as the ultimate boogie rock'n'roll survivors.

Lynyrd Skynyrd rose to worldwide fame through their driving live performances, however, in 1977 three members tragically died in an airplane crash ending the band's peak of success.

Continuing to tour across the world and still recording new material, Lynyrd Skynyrd, recognised for anthems such as Freebird and Sweet Home Alabama, will return to the UK in November for three UK shows not long after the release of their upcoming album, Last Of A Dyin' Breed.

Lynyrd Skynyrd 2012 UK Tour Dates as follows:

  • Nov 11th - Gateshead Sage
  • Nov 12th - London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
  • Nov 14th - Norwich U.E.A

Lynyrd Skynyrd Tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday 20th July.
