Described as the ‘titans of American classic rock’ Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top will co-headline “The Sharp Dressed Simple Man” tour at Ruoff Music Center on Aug. 20, 2023, live nation announced.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is approaching the 50th anniversary of the band’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd’ and connects with their fans as deeply today as they did in 1973. The band’s current members include Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Carol Chase and Stacy Michelle.

“It’s about the legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there playing a great show with Skynyrd and seeing people love this music,” Van Zant said.

“We’re still standing, Still keeping the music going. We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too,” Rossington said.

Co-headliners ZZ Top have delivered rock, blues and boogie to millions of devoted fans since their rise to fame in 1973 with their release of singles “Tres Hombres” and “La Grange” which attracted national attention.

“They have sold hundreds of millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (by Keith Richards, no less) and have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms. They are true rock icons and, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. ZZ TOP abides!” Live Nation said.
