Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd performs at the Capital City Amphitheater in Cascades Park, Friday November 3rd.
The legacy began 41 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Huey Thomasson, yet Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks on with original member Gary Rossington joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlock, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase.
And so Skynyrd stands, “still unbroken.” Rossington explains, “We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We wanted to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.” Lynyrd Skynyrd and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” remain cultural icons that appeals to all generations.
GATES OPEN AT 6:00PM.
