VIDEO: Lynyrd Skynyrd perform rarity at tribute concert

Lynyrd Skynyrd have issued video of a performance of the rare track, “Travelin’ Man”, 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 tune – which first appeared on the group’s 1976 live album “One More From The Road” – made its studio debut on the 1997 compilation, “Twenty.”

The studio version and the new live version present a duet featuring singer Johnny Van Zant and his late brother, original Skynyrd frontman Ronnie Van Zant.

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.

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