VIDEO: Gregg Allman performs at Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute concert

Gregg Allman performs the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, “Tuesday’s Gone”, on the July 24 release of “One More For The Fans”, a 2CD/DVD set featuring highlights from an all-star tribute concert to the southern rock icons held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last November.

“Tuesday’s Gone” originally appeared on the group’s 1973 debut, “(Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd).” The album peaked at No. 27 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 2 million copies in the States alone.

Allman was just one of several guests to perform at the “One More For The Fans” event, which saw performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Trace Adkins, Alabama, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Daniels, Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt and many more.

As part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their 1976 live album, “One More From The Road”, at the landmark theatre; the title of the tribute concert and release was inspired by that legendary album’s title.

Other previews from the forthcoming package include “Free Bird”, the rare track “Travelin’ Man”, a Cheap Trick cover of “Gimme Back My Bullets” and Peter Frampton performing the JJ Cale classic, “Call Me The Breeze.”
