VIDEO: Lynyrd Skynyrd perform Free Bird at tribute concert

Lynyrd Skynyrd have issued video of a performance of their classic, "Free Bird", as a preview to the July 24 release of “One More For The Fans”, a 2CD/DVD set featuring highlights from an all-star tribute concert held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last November.

The second single from the group’s 1973 debut, “(Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd)”, is one of the Southern rock icons signature songs; it peaked at No. 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 upon its release and continues to be a staple at rock radio.

The “One More For The Fans” event featured performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as music legends and young talent, including Cheap Trick, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Gregg Allman, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, 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 “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 the rare track “Travelin’ Man” and a Cheap Trick cover of “Gimme Back My Bullets.”

AXS TV will premiere “Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans” on Sunday, July 19 at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST.
