BANGOR, Maine — Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will return to the Bangor Waterfront on July 10, according to the band’s website.

On Monday, the band announced 19 summer concert dates throughout the U.S. with English classic rockers Bad Company for the 40th Anniversary Tour.

Skynyrd previously drew an estimated 8,000 rock fans to the waterfront when the band played the venue in 2011 with ZZ Top.

Tickets, which will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 11, are priced $32.75-$102.75 plus any applicable processing fees.

Skynyrd’s most recent album, “Last of a Dyin’ Breed,” was released in 2012. Recently inducted into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame, Skynyrd is led by Gary Rossington, the band’s only remaining original member.
