Chris Kroeze from 'The Voice' will join Lynyrd Skynyrd for performance in Minnesota

The outdoor concert is scheduled for July 19, 2019.

It was announced earlier this week that Lynyrd Skynyrd's farewell tour will be stopping in Minnesota for a show next summer, and now we know that the runner-up on the latest season of NBC's "The Voice" will be joining the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band. 

Chris Kroeze will be a featured guest performer with Skynyrd at the July 19, 2019 performance at Treasure Island's outdoor amphitheater in Welch, Minnesota. 

Tickets start at $32.50 and go all the up to $112. You can buy them at Ticketmaster, but most of the front section seats are already gone, though plenty of tickets remain available. 

Kroeze, a native of Barron, Wisconsin, took second place in this past week's season finale of The Voice, and he sang Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" as one of his three songs during the final competition.
