Rossington, 63, Skynyrd's only remaining original member, suffered a heart attack in October.

The band had shows scheduled in Loveland, Colorado, December 4 and Mescalero, New Mexico, December 5.

Lynyrd Skynyrd have plans to resume touring next year and are among the acts slated for the annual Tortuga Music Festival April 15 to 17 at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, Florida. We'll keep you updated.
