Farewell tours are so 2020. After the pandemic derailed Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour, the venerable Southern rock band are resuming and rebranding their trek: The Big Wheels Keep on Turnin’ Tour kicks off June 13th and includes 30 dates into November. The group’s core members — founding guitarist Gary Rossington, singer Johnny Van Zant, and guitarist Rickey Medlocke — spoke about their decision to remain a touring act in a new video interview. “Covid turned our world upside down. 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,” Rossington said. “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.”
