Concert Recap from Bethelem, Pennsylvania
August 10, 2010 7:31:59 PM UTC Post #1

Weather: Perfect, alil hot. High 80's - High Humidity.
Atmosphere: ELECTRIC ...Plenty of food vendors, drinks (Yuengling & Miller lite), Mixed drink tent. Concert was along the Lehigh River. Seating areas were as follows: VIP, Reserved & Lawn. Folks from all walks of life, young & old. Many good looking women.

Pre Show: The local rock station had on some promotional stuff along with rock mixed. The DJ was getting the crowd amped up with about 15 minutes before the show started. To fire up the crowd, they played some AC/DC & Jimi Hendrix (All along the watchtower).

Show: Stage lights the "LYNYRD SKYNYRD" BANNER and the crowd goes into a frenzy. Open the show with Workin for MCA followed by I AINT THE ONE, THEN, WHATS YOUR NAME. Then it was on to Skynyrd Nation, THIS AINT MY AMERICA. At this point, the crowd is yearning for the classics. LS Goes into THAT SMELL. After THAT SMELL, Johnny puts on a baseball hat backwards that says "Sheriff" across the back and asked the crowd to give a holler for all our troops, He then says, " that this song, is for everyone across seas and around the world for our freedom" so everyone is thinking that they are going to play red,white,& blue BUT NO, They play SIMPLE MAN, and crowd goes wild. SIDENOTE: At this point, im sweating my ass off from singing and playing air guitar. After SIMPLE MAN, they rock GIMME BACK MY BULLETS, TUESDAYS GONE, GIMME THREE STEPS ,SWEET HOME ALABAMA AND FOR THE GRAND FINALE FREE BIRD....

Overall: Would I go to another LS concert? You bet your ass, it was worth every penny. As a whole the band showed no signs of age nor wear and tear. There performance was explosive. One member of the band really stood out and that was Ricky........Ricky was playing the guitar with his teeth, downs on his knees. The guy was plain and simple: on fire. Their whole set was great, the crowd was into it. It will be my first of many, Lord Willing.

TO MY SKYNYRD NATION BROTHERS AND SISTERS.......STAY FROSTY

Sounds amazing- Congratulations on your first show!!! Niiice!

Great review! ♬ ♪

How did your mom like it?

I've been going to Lynyrd Skynyrd shows since the 70's and they never get old! Some of the best experiences I have had have been in recent years with my son. I started taking him when he was around 12- and he's in his 20's now.

I'm still talking about last night's show.

I wish they'd add more shows in the Northeast. Better yet, play at my NYE party this year! Think they'd go for it? After all, I *AM* their biggest fan. :)

@ LS-SBRONSON: My Mom was 16 when the Pronounced album was released. It brought her back to "rebel" years. It is now two days after the show and we are still talking about how great the show was. We were on our feet and dancing the whole time.

@ Parsley: Happy to see another person from PA on here. Where you located? I am from the Philadelphia area, so it was about an hr and a half drive, but definitely worth it. Also for LS to play your NYE party, I want an invite and your checkbook should be ready to write a generous amount. LOL.


* They also played they call me the breeze.....To the nation, stay frosty.

I live very close to Dorney Park, so only 20 minutes from Bethlehem. I stood in front of the stage for the whole concert.
I got one of Rossington's guitar pics!!!!
IMO, Skynyrd does the BEST shows without any special effects or fancy stuff. There is just a huge energy that they create. Those ("old") guys can rock....... hard.
