Lynyrd Skynyrd has postponed this weekend’s scheduled gigs to give Gary Rossington more time to recover from heart surgery.
In an announcement made Tuesday, the band said Friday’s show in Las Vegas and Saturday’s appearance in Wheatland, California will be rescheduled for sometime in October.
Both stops are part of Skynyrd’s massive “Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour,” which has been on the road since May 2018.
Rossington, the only original member who’s still with the group, has had his share of heart troubles over the years. He underwent quintuple bypass surgery in 2003, and suffered a heart attack in 2015.
Lynyrd Skynyrd kicked off their Farewell Tour in May 2018. They’re set to return to the road on August 23rd in Irvine, California, and will headline one night of the new Exit 111 Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on October 11th.
