Author: Jim Johnson

Lynyrd Skynyrd was scheduled to play the DTE Energy Music Theater next Thursday July 28th along with Peter Frampton. We are waiting for an update from the venue as to the disposition of the show and for more info on the status of tickets already sold, after co-founding guitarist Gary Rossington‘s hospitalization following chest pains, Lynyrd Skynyrd is hitting the pause button on their current tour for a few weeks, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

The band issued a statement on its Facebook page saying: “The Lynyrd Skynyrd band is canceling or rescheduling the next 2 weeks of touring, while Gary Rossington recovers at home from heart surgery to repair blockage in his arteries. Currently, the band hopes to resume touring on August 4 in Woodlands, TX. The band has rescheduled Boston, MA at Blue Hills Bank Pavilion to September 23 and moved Big Flats, NY at Tag’s Summer Sound Stage to the following day, September 24. We are continuing to work on other potential re-scheduling, as well. Please stay tuned to the Lynyrd Skynyrd website and social media pages for updates.”
