New dates for Lynyrd Skynyrd's Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour will take the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band's final victory lap into its third year.

Skynyrd's farewell tour began in May 2018 and has included over 100 US and international dates. "We've said we want to play every venue and market we've ever visited around the world one last time, and even some places we haven't, so we get to see all of Skynyrd Nation," says lead singer Johnny Van Zant in a press release. "We are getting close!"

The new coast-to-coast itinerary mixes arena dates with festival stops. Select dates feature country music stars Travis Tritt and the Eli Young Band as openers.

If this latest string of dates marks the end of the tour, then a band founded in Jacksonville will end its run in Florida at Lynyrd Skynyrd & Frynds Simple Man Jam at Orlando's Shingle Creek Resort.

Tickets for the newly announced dates go on sale this Friday (Dec.) at 10 a.m. local time, with pre-sales available tomorrow (Dec. 4) for Citi cardholders.

The Last of the Street Survivors title comes from the 1977 album Street Survivors, which was released just three days before the plane crash which took the lives of lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and backup singer Cassie Gaines. The current Skynyrd lineup is led by the Southern rock group's final living original member, guitarist Gary Rossington.
