Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Decision to Continue Without Gary Rossington
One month following Gary Rossington’s demise, Lynyrd Skynyrd communicated a challenging choice to persist in their touring endeavors. In their statement, the band expressed:
“After much discussion with the band, the families of Ronnie Van Zant and Allen Collins, and Dale Rossington, the collective has reached unified support. [They] feel that continuing to perform live, and keeping the music alive, is in the best interest of the fans and everyone involved.”
They believe that maintaining live performances and preserving the music is in the best interest of the fans and all parties involved.
Meanwhile, the group announced in October 2023 that they would be touring with their buddies in ZZ Top for the second consecutive summer. The 2024 Sharp Dressed Simple Man Tour is set to begin in Savannah on March 8.
