Lynyrd Skynyrd's Las Vegas restaurant is set to close due to financial problems.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Bbq & Beer opened in Sin City last year (11), but last week (begs24Sep12) U.S. judge Linda Riegle ordered the eatery's owners to shut the doors after they filed for bankruptcy.

And the Sweet Home Alabama hitmakers are devastated fans will no longer get a chance to check out the venue, which is adorned with the band's album covers.

A statement from the group reads: "Although Lynyrd Skynyrd was not the proprietor of the restaurant, the band licensed their name and likeness for the Bbq and Beer style concept. Unfortunately, the project was launched during a downturn in the economy.

"(While) the band was not involved in the day-to-day operations of the property, the band and management are very disappointed the venture did not have a positive result."
