For a blast from the past, get yourself Lynrd Skynyrd tickets and see the rock legends play the night away. Though the band has been plagued with macabre bad luck over the years – 8 members have died in various accidents and unfortunate circumstances- the band continues to go strong and tour all over the world. The vibe is distinctly 70s and country-fied. They know their audience and they play to them: there will be plenty of dedications and thank you’s directed at the troops and returned with cheers. That’s not the only audience participation you’re bound to see at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert. There’s the big moment in the night when the band’s huge radio hit “Sweet Home Alabama” rings out over the crowd, and they return the favor with a hearty singalong. But the high point always seems to be the number one most requested song ever at any concert: “Free Bird.” It starts plaintive and mourning, building through audiences’ emotive call and response, and exploding into a musical, celebratory jam session that leaves fan filled crowds jumping for joy and cheering for more. A Lynyrd Skynyrd show won’t leave long time music fans and newcomers alike wanting for anything.
