FARGO — Classic rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will play Fargo's Scheels Arena June 9.

Though the group disbanded after a 1977 plane crash that killed singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines, founding guitarist Gary Rossington reformed the band a decade later with Van Zant's brother, Johnny, on lead vocals.

The Southern rockers played Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen in 2012, the same year the group was named the Greatest American Rock Band by readers of The Forum. The group also played WE Fest in Detroit Lakes in 2011.

Tickets are $33, $43, $53, and $83, plus fees and go on sale at 11 a.m., Friday, April 7 on
