Billy Gibbons shared much of the same excitement and anticipation for the upcoming tour.
“‘Rebels & Bandoleros’ is more of a coming together of friends than a mere tour,” Gibbons said in a statement. “We’re delighted to be hitting the road with our Skynyrd brethren once more. It’s going to be a great ride.”
The “Rebels & Bandoleros” tour kicks off In Wichita, Kansas May 12.
