The Rock "N" Roll Hall of Famer announced Thursday that the farewell tour will also feature Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr., Bad Company, the Marshall Tucker Band and 38 Special.

Tickets for the tour will go on presale through Live Nation beginning February 1.

Original members Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the band in 1964, originally known as My Backyard, the band changed to its famous name in the early 1970s, and became popular in the Jacksonville, FL area, where the original members were from. The first leg of the career-concluding tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off Friday, May 4 in West Palm Beach, FL at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre and will wrap Saturday, September 1 in Atlanta, GA at the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood.

Since then, Rossington and Ronnie's brother Johnny have been the heart of the group that has now been together for more than four decades.

But Lynyrd Skynyrd's spree of hits was cut short during the band's 1977 tour when the plane transporting the group crashed near Gillsburg, Miss., killing Van Zant, Steve Gaines and backup singer Cassie Gaines along with several road crew members. You can find more information at the band's website.
