Along the way, the band will visit states they didn’t perform in last year, including Mississippi, Utah, Maine, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington and Minnesota.
Skynyrd will also return to some venues they hit in 2016, including Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., where they sold 3,789 tickets for a gross of $75,780 in October 2016, and Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, N.H., where they sold 3,911 tickets for a gross of $230,764 earlier that year.
As they did in 2018, Hank Williams Jr. and Bad Company will provide support for different stints of the tour, as will Cody Jinks.
In early March, Lynyrd Skynyrd will tour through Canada, and in June, the band will visit European countries.
