Lynyrd Skynyrd has cancelled their July 19 concert at the Artpark outdoor amphitheater due to a medical issue with one of the band members.
The band released this statement on Monday:
"Lynyrd Skynyrd's performance at Artpark in Lewiston, NY on July 19th has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule the show in the near future. Founding member and guitar player, Gary Rossington, is seeking doctor's evaluation in Atlanta after experiencing some chest pains. Lynyrd Skynyrd will resume their tour once Gary is cleared by medical professionals. We will advise as soon as we have additional information."
Stay tuned for details on Artpark's website, www.artpark.net, and Facebook page, as they become available.
There was no "Wednesdays at Artpark" concert scheduled for this week.
Ironically, this was a fill-in date for Artpark. Tears for Fears, originally slated for July 19, cancelled due to a family issue.
