"We are having a blast!" Van Zant said in a release. "Every crowd so far has been incredible. The energy and excitement they have been giving us has been like fuel on a fire. We can't wait to get out there each night and burn it up!" 

Skynyrd is best know for hits like "Sweet Home Alabama," "Free Bird," "Simple Man," "Gimme Three Steps," "What's Your Name," "Call Me The Breeze" and "You Got That Right." 

Rossington, who still plays guitar as the band's sole-surviving original member, told Billboard in May that they'll end every show with "Free Bird."
