Homegrown Southern Rockers LYNYRD SKYNYRD Return Home

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Live at the Florida Theatre, southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd are back in their hometown – Jacksonville – filming two live concerts for an upcoming TV special and DVD. For this ultimate fan experience, Lynyrd Skynyrd will perform their first two albums, (pronounced ‘lĕh-’nérd ‘skin-’nérd) and Second Helping, in their entirety.
Singer Johnny Van Zant has fronted the band since 1987, far longer than the original singer, his brother Ronnie, ever did. Guitarists Rickey Medlocke and Mark Matejka have been with Skynyrd for 19 and 9 years, respectively.
