Lynyrd Skynyrd is headed back on the road after they were forced to cancel their 2020 farewell tour.


The band’s Big Wheels Keep On Turnin’ Tour kicked off on June 13 and is scheduled to make 30 stops with shows in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Irvine, Calif. and Knoxville, Tenn. The final stop is scheduled for November 19 in Bossier City, La.

In a video message to fans, the band said that although they were planning on starting a farewell tour last year, they’ve since decided that they aren’t ready to say goodbye to performing just yet.

“We were two shows into the end of the three-year plan for the farewell tour when the virus hit and everything was just gone,” said lead singer Johnny Van Zant. “Once something is taken away from you – music and touring in our case – you truly realize how important it is and such a part of your life. Music is a great healer, and that’s what we all turn to when things are good or bad. A Skynyrd show is a family affair, and we want these dates to help heal our fans as much as ourselves.”

“COVID turned our world upside down,” original band member Gary Rossington said. “And since that time, we have been talking amongst the band, and realized that music has such a way of healing. Maybe it’s not our time to go. And maybe it’s our time to lift people’s spirits and lives and bring back some joy and happiness after so much turmoil this past year. We’re still standing, still keeping the music going.”
