Their fourth farewell tour!

(seriously, I have no idea if Skynyrd is milking their retirement, ala the Eagles, who definitely did do multiple farewell tours.)

As was previously mentioned, the fact that they immediately said “see you next year” makes me think it will be a go. Perhaps they haven’t settled in a date yet, or some other complicating factor. Does LN produce 420 fest? It makes zero sense to have these two feats on the same weekend if it’s the same promoter (which I believe it is). Maybe they are trying to figure out the logistics of making them both work on different weekends while taking into account Easter?



Sweetwater is produced by happy endings productions. It seems like 420 is their main/only festival. It has long been my opinion LN was allowing the festival to grow and posturing themselves to buy it out.

Let's be honest LN has deep enough pockets to sink 420. They even allow some crossover acts every year. Gives me the impression they are eying it as an aquisition. They could outbook them all day and slap clauses on the artist's to not play both. Based on LN'S stature they could make it happen. Surely there must be reason they have not.

If they could buy it out they could easily have two successful festivals going on at once and book artist's for both very easily. It would be a very savvy move.

Gary Rossington is pretty ill from what I've heard...heart problems. He's the only original left and I don't think it would go on without him.
Of course I could be wrong

So I just Googled that guy (admittedly have never been a Skynrd guy, don't care for them much and thus know nothing about them). The intrawebz says he started as a founding member of LS when he was 13? Damn.

His 1976 car crash (while drunk & high) was the basis for one of their best songs, "That Smell."

A Wanee Easter Egg Hunt would be awesome, but is it out of the question to just have easter moved up a week? There's still time. We could get 10,000 Wanee fans to sign a petition to reschedule easter. That is probably 9700 more people than they can find that actually give a f!*k when easter is.

The first Sunday after the First full moon after the equinox? They pulled that s#%t out of their ass anyway.
