Few entities and people have stood the test of time and can rightfully be called legendary like those joining the Sturgis Buffalo Chip lineup today. The Buffalo Chip’s self-proclaimed house band, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, is continuing a legendary tradition by finishing off their 40-plus year career with an ultimate send-off on the Wolfman Jack Stage on Sunday 9th August.
This is SKYNYRD’S second stop at the Chip as part of their three-year “Farewell Tour.” In keeping with the theme, 36 of the world’s most celebrated motorcycle builders have accepted Michael Lichter’s invitation to create and display a motorcycle in the style of their choosing for the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 2020 Motorcycles as Art exhibit titled “Heavy Mettle: Motorcycles and Art with Moxie.” All invited builders have completed at least 20 custom builds and been in business for at least 20 years. The one-time exhibit will also feature photographs captured by Lichter over his 40 plus-year career. The exhibit is free and open to the public at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Event Center from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.
These iconic entertainers and builders have influenced generations. We‘re honored to be the only venue to make it on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Farewell Tour’ twice simply because they love the Chip and our fans so much. Hosting these legends along with the biggest names in motorcycles will truly provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our guests.Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President
