Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company
Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company
Earlier this year Southern Rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd announced that after a career that has spanned more than 40 years and includes a catalog of more than 60 albums with more than 30 million units sold, they would embark on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. The farewell tour will take the band across the country through the remainder of this year and all of next year, giving fans one last unforgettable night of classic American Rock-and-Roll.
The Southern Rockers are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified "Sweet Home Alabama" and self-proclaimed signature song "Free Bird" that Rolling Stone said was "easily the most requested live song in existence." With everlasting hits such as "Simple Man," "Gimme Three Steps," "What's Your Name," "Call Me The Breeze," "You Got That Right," and more, it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time.
The Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company show at Xcel Energy Center is part of the KQRS 50th Anniversary Concert Series sponsored by Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.

Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.
Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.
Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.
Guests are reminded to fully charge their smartphones prior to arriving at the venue in order to access mobile tickets. Click here for more information.
