This concert list is a crock of shit. l saw Skynyrd 3 times at the Asheville Civic Center in Asheville, NC and not a damn one of them is on this list. First time it was Grinderswitch, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Skynyrd. Second time was Charlie Daniels then Skynyrd. Third time it was Goose Creek Symphony, Z Z Top then Skynyrd.

Where is Lynyrd Skynyrd from?

Lynyrd Skynyrd has its roots in Jacksonville, Florida.

Who were the original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd?

Founding members of Lynyrd Skynyrd included Ronnie Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Bob Burns with Allen Collins and Larry Junstrom completing the original lineup.

How did Lynyrd Skynyrd get their name?

Prior to settling on Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band had several names including

  • My Backyard
  • The Noble Five
  • The One Percent

Van Zant and his bandmates decided to change their band name from "The One Percent" to eliminate taunts that they only had "one percent" talent. They finally settled on Leonard Skinnerd, a reference to a character in Allan Sherman's song and a mocking tribute to their PE teacher with the same name. They adopted the more distinct spelling of Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1970.

What happened to Lynyrd Skynyrd?

On October 20, 1977, a plane carrying the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd crashed. Despite this tragedy, Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited in 1987 for its first tour in 10 years. Members of the second iteration of Lynyrd Skynyrd included survivors of the plane crash (Gary Rossington, Billy Powell, Leon Wilkeson and Artimus Pyle) along with Ed King and Ron Vannie Zant's younger brother Johnny Van Zant. Since that reunion tour, the band released several studio albums and toured extensively, albeit with an ever-changing lineup of members.

Where did Lynyrd Skynyrd play their last concert before the crash?

There's a lot of Lynyrd Skynyrd merch that you can wear when you go to their events. If you don't have any, then you're free to use the time-tested black, white, and denim outfit combination.

How is Lynyrd Skynyrd doing concerts if they died in a plane?

Why is "Free Bird" the last song at Lynyrd Skynyrd concerts?

"Free Bird" is the closing track of Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut album and was traditionally the last song that Lynyrd Skynyrd would play at their performances before the 1977 plane crash. After the crash, Van Zant's brother, Johnny, was too emotional to sing it on stage, so the audience sang the lyrics as the band played on. Today, at the end of a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert, it's still a tradition for the concert to end with "Free Bird," but now the band plays it as an instrumental as the crowd sings its lyrics as a tribute to their lost members.
