They unofficially kicked off the Summer concert season by headlining Richardson’s Wildflower Arts & Music Festival just before Memorial Weekend.  Now, Lynyrd Skynyrd is returning to play a different Dallas-Metroplex venue as Fall sets in.

Saturday October 7th, it’ll be the “Lynyrd Skynyrd Laid-Back Festival”, at the new Irving Music Factory.  Skynyrd will take the Pavilion stage following their special guest, the Lone Star State’s own Jimmie Vaughan.  More performers are expected to join the line-up as the event gets closer.  Tickets for Lynyrd Skynyrd go on sale this Friday morning at 10.

Also set to play October 7th, but on the opposite side of East Texas:  Rick Springfield.  He’ll be on a bill with Richard Marx at Margaritaville Casino in Shreveport.
