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.

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.
