Lynyrd Skynyrd To Film Live DVD In Jacksonville
Lynyrd Skynyrd will perform their first two albums in a pair of special concerts in their hometown of Jacksonville, FL. The shows will be recorded for a television special and a live DVD.
The legendary Southern rockers are booked play the Florida Theatre on Feb. 12-13, 2015, with 1973's '(Pronounced 'Leh-'nerd 'Skin-'nerd)' on the first night and 'Second Helping' on the second. The rest of the sets will be comprised of their many classic songs.
“We’ve been wanting to go back and recreate these live records for a long time,” singer Johnny Van Zant told the Florida Times-Union. “We decided to come back to our hometown, Jacksonville, and play at the legendary Florida Theatre. Can’t wait to rock it.”
Tickets will go on sale on Monday at Ticketmaster. Prices range between $49.50 and $99.50 for the 1,900-seat capacity venue, which was built in 1927 and re-opened in 1983 after an extensive renovation. The Florida Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
