Tickets purchased for these shows will be honored for the rescheduled dates.

Singer Johnny Van Zant, commenting on this latest health crisis for the last surviving member of the original lineup,says, "We all appreciate the well wishes for Gary and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. But he can't wait to come back and perform at 100 percent for the fans. We will see you all soon!"
