If you are a fan of good old classic rock, then you will be interested to know about the Lynyrd Skynyrd casino performance that the group has planned for the FireKeepers Casino Hotel in Battle Creek. With the date set for the 16th of March this year, you can start grabbing your tickets from tomorrow at 10am – and you might want to hurry, because this is a reserved seating event that may well sell out fast!
The southern rockers are known for a large amount of hit songs that spans their career, which has lasted for more than thirty five years. ‘Free Bird’ enjoys a legendary status, and ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ has been used on soundtracks and at events for many years as a perfect homage to the state. The band started out in Jacksonville, Florida, and have their own place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – one that their fans say is very well deserved. They are led by guitarist Gary Rossington, vocalist Johnny Van Zant and guitarist Rickey Medlock, and are still going strong with a new album having just come out this past summer.
Entitled “Last of Dyin’ Breed”, concert goers can except to hear plenty of the tracks from this release as well as all of the old classics that really get the crowd going, and it will certainly be a thrill to head to the gig after a day of playing slot machine games or head back to the poker tables after they go off stage, both of which will be possibilities with this fantastic set up. You can buy your tickets online, and those in Michigan who had been hoping to see the band back in July at the Irish Hills Biker Festival might want to take this chance to actually see them. That performance was cancelled when it transpired that “the promoter of the show was not going to be able to pay for the performance and also the vendors”, as was stated in a message posted by the band to their Facebook page on the day.
