Lynyrd Skynyrd is calling it quits with a farewell concert in Biloxi

Get ready to scream "Play 'Freebird' " at the top of your lungs one last time in Biloxi.

Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd and Live Nation on Tuesday announced the band is playing a final Biloxi show on "The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour" at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum on Saturday, Dec. 8.

Tickets for the show go on sale Friday at Ticketmaster.com.

Although the show may not be the band's final gig, it is the last show scheduled for 2018. Opening acts for the second leg of the tour include Bad Company, Jamey Johnson and Marshall Tucker Band. More shows will be scheduled in 2019, according to a news release from Live Nation.

The band will have played more than 50 dates in 2018 by the time the tour rolls into Biloxi.

"This farewell tour has already been the perfect end to an incredible run and we are not even halfway through the tour yet! There is still lots of road to go and lots of fans to see one last time,” founding member Gary Rossington said in a news release.

The band last played Biloxi in 2017 at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.
