Lynyrd Skynrd has just rolled out 20 new dates as the band's "The Last Of The Street Survivors" final tour stretches into the summer of 2020. Travis Tritt will serve as the opening act for most of the new shows now on the books. Frontman Johnny Van Zant said in a statement, "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.' We are getting close!"

Johnny Van Zant told us that despite so many health issues -- especially a severely compromised heart -- sole-surviving band co-founder Gary Rossington is such a deep part of the band that he'll never stop touring: "With him, man, he's been doing this all of his life. Me and him always say, 'Hey, if weren't doing this, we'd be picking cotton, or Celebrity Lawn Service.' So, y'know, what else is he gonna do, y'know? So, it's in his blood."

Lynyrd Skynyrd will be joined by the Allman Betts Band, and Asleep At The Wheel on December 31st for a New Year's Eve concert at Dallas' American Airlines Center.
