Jacksonville, FL — Lynyrd Skynyrd is planning a big homecoming as part of their farewell tour.
Johnny Van Zant and Rickey Medlocke announced at EverBank Field Thursday that the band will play the stadium September 2nd, along with Kid Rock, Jason Aldean, and others.
“We’re gunna rock the house here, let’s fill the tilt,” Van Zant says.
They said they knew they wanted to stop in Jacksonville on their “Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour”, but they’re especially excited to be able to come to the stadium.
“I said ‘Hey- the Jags and Skynyrd, c’mon’,” Van Zant says.
The concert is a day-long event, which will also include food trucks, games, and more.
“I am so proud of this town,” Medlocke says.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Monday, April 30th at 10AM. The only other Florida stops announced for the tour so far are West Palm Beach on May 4th and Tampa May 5th.
