Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington has been hospitalized, forcing the band to cancel this weekend’s live shows.
The band posted the news:
“Skynyrd Nation, regrettably, our shows at the Hard Rock Biloxi this weekend on 2/15 & 2/16 have been cancelled. Gary Rossington has been hospitalized in Wyoming with an abdominal infection. We are awaiting further tests and treatment, once we receive information on Gary’s status we will release additional information. Thank you for your understanding & support.”
Skynyrd have been touring in support of their latest album, “Last Of A Dyin’ Breed.”
Upon its release last summer, the project debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, the highest charting for a Skynyrd album since 1977.
