Lynyrd Skynyrd’s final concert with founding guitarist Gary Rossington is hitting movie theaters across the U.S.
The concert film, “The 50th Anniversary of Lynyrd Skynyrd,” will celebrate the band’s legacy, while also paying tribute to Rossington, who died on March 5.
Singer Johnny Van Zant released a statement saying, “We are excited to share this special night and celebrate 50 Years of Skynyrd music with the Skynyrd Nation and fans of these timeless songs. We were fortunate to capture this special evening with Gary Rossington and Dale Krantz Rossington and all of the special guests that were able to join us on stage. It is certainly bittersweet because this was Gary’s last show, but we are so fortunate that we were able to share one last special night together onstage, doing what Gary loved."
The 50th Anniversary of Lynyrd Skynyrd” will premiere on July 8 and screen for a limited, one-week run in movie theaters, drive-ins, and outdoor venues across the country.
