KINDER, LA (KPLC) -

A Saturday concert by Lynyrd Skynryd at the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder has been canceled, according to casino officials.

Officials said the band has been forced to postpone their performance because member Gary Rossington is ill.

"Gary Rossington has been suffering with a lower tract infection and a bout of pneumonia, although his diagnosis remains positive, Gary will be unable to perform this weekend while he recovers from his illness," a release from officials states.

The band, through Vector Management, apologized to fans.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused the fans and promoters. Lynyrd Skynyrd looks forward to touring and performing in the near future," the management company said.

Officials said all cash tickets can be refunded at the point of purchase.

Tickets purchased through the Coushatta Box Office will be refunded at the Coushatta Box Office.

All tickets purchased through Ticketmaster will be refunded through the Ticketmaster outlets.
