Concert is Postponed at OCFS in Middletown New York
The concert scheduled for tomorrow night at the Orange County Fair Speedway presented by OME Events has been postponed. Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Six Gun Sally were scheduled to appear at the House of Power Stadium at the Orange County Fair Speedway this Friday night with doors at 7 PM.
Unfortunately due to members of the band coming down with COVID, the show has had to be rescheduled for later this year. In a Facebook post earlier today (Thursday 6-9-2022) OME Events announced the postponement and broke the news to concert goers that it was going to be moving the show to October. It did not mention which members have COVID.

Lynyrd Skynyrd announced in 2018 that they would be doing a farewell tour "Last of the Street Survivors". Like other bands, their tour which was coming to an end was postponed in 2020 due to COVID. Once they got back on the road Lynyrd Skynyrd decide to rethink retirement.
Original member and guitarist Gary Rossington added, ‘you know, we were in the last part of the Farewell Tour when COVID turned our world upside down. And since that time, we have been talking amongst the band, and realized that music has such a way of healing. Maybe it’s not our time to go? And maybe it’s our time to lift people’s spirits and lives and bring back some joy and happiness after so much turmoil this past year. This country and the world have been through a lot this past year with COVID. We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. (via OMEevents.com)
