    Lynyrd Skynyrd Announce 2015 UK Dates

    The band will play three shows in April.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced a three-date run of shows for next year.

    They'll play Glasgow, Manchester and London in April 2015.

    Original member Gary Rossington will be joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlock, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.

    Van Zant said of the announcement: "People may say, ‘They need the money’... well I don’t think any of us need the money, it’s just that we love the music, it’s bigger than the money, it’s not even about that any more. We have to make a living, sure, but it’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music."

    Tickets for the shows are on-sale now at planetrock.com/tickets!
