Forest Hills Stadium will play host to Lynyrd Skynyrd in what may be the iconic Southern rock band's final New York City-area concerts.
Skynyrd recently announced a stop at the historic Queens venue on July 14 on the final leg of its 'Last Of The Street Survivors' farewell tour.
Supporting Skynyrd on the date will be another legend, Hank Williams, Jr.
Tickets go on sale to the general public, starting Friday, April 19, at 10 a.m. Go to ForestHillsStadium.com for more information.
The Forest Hills Stadium performance comes after Skynyrd in February announced an additional 21 dates to its tour.
This is the band's second U.S. go-around. It also has plans to visit Canada, Europe and elsehwere later this year.
The band told iHeartRadio last September that it intends to make the most of what may be its final chapter.
And while Skynyrd's touring career may be coming to an end, front man Johnny Van Zant confirmed in March that the band has a new album in the works, in addition to a concert film documenting the final tour.
