Lynyrd Skynyrd Reschedule Shows After Two Members Contracted COVID

Lynyrd Skynyrd recently announced that two of their members contracted Covid-19, and they had to reschedule two dates from this weekend to September and October.

Formed in 1964 as My Backyard, Lynyrd Skynyrd blessed its fans with fourteen studio albums throughout their music career. Apart from putting out successful records, the band members have been on almost twenty tours to support their releases for their audience. After nearly six decades of performing, creating, and being on the road, the band decided to bid farewell to those who love them.

They announced their farewell tour in 2018, but with the pandemic restrictions, the schedule stretched to four years, and currently, the band is on the road. Lynyrd Skynyrd recently announced that they postponed the two upcoming dates in New York and Pennsylvania to September and October due to two members contracting the coronavirus.

They announced it with a brief explanation on Instagram, and the band didn’t reveal who the members exposed to the virus were. The fans commented on their good wishes and stated that health is more important. After the heartfelt comments from the fans, the band members are in their recovery process and will be back on stage on their next tour date, July 1.

Here is the announcement as posted by the band:

“Unfortunately, two band members of Lynyrd Skynyrd have contracted Covid. Therefore, this weekend’s performances have been rescheduled to the following dates:

Friday, September 30 – Allentown, PA

Saturday, October 1 – Middletown, NY

We hope to make up the fox and friends performance in the near future. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The Lynyrd Skynyrd Band.”

With their farewell tour, Lynyrd Skynyrd announced that they would release their 15th and final album. Having released their latest album in 2012, the band is back in the creative process for their last record. Their fans are excited to hear that but also wonder if the covid setback will cause the creation an inconvenience.
