After heading south for the Hammersmith show last saturday,i took my 8 year old to his first ever gig last nite to witness the mighty Skynyrd lay waste to all before them in the city of Glasgow. He loved every minute,even tho it was a school nite. As we left,he commented on how unlucky all those poor souls were that were exiting the adjacent SECC concert hall where X-Factor - the tour had been taking place. He was so glad he'd been to see Skynyrd and not the hapless Jedward and co. He insisted on sleeping in his tour shirt last nite,and demanded that i get better seats next time Skynyrd play Glasgow. Has to be another tour next year!
Young and old - Thats Skynyrd Nation.

Could not agree more, they say your first time is the best, but evertime with Skynyrd is like the first, we were down the front, my 11 year old got a pick from Robert, great night again. Come back soon.

Absolutely right guys. I had not seen Skynyrd since a gig at the famous Apollo mid 70's and it was well worth the wait. Makes all the difference when it is obvious that the band are enjoying themselves as much as the audience. Great night!

Missed last years show but this certainly made up for it. Thanks for a brilliant gig guys. Long may it continue.

PS any chance of adding Aberdeen Aecc to the next tour?

Drove down from Aberdeen for this Gig. Lost touch with the band over the years but G&G + Youtube reminded me that they are not just a band but a religion. What a fantastic gig at the Clyde, brilliant atmosphere and the band were clearly enjoying themselves. For me, the most emotional moment was Simple Man....this means so much to me and to hear it live was just well, inspiring...Freebird was just better than anything I have ever witnessed at any other gig.....And for all the poor saddos who saw X Factor, I hope you lot wake up and understand what real musicians and lyrics sound like!!! Thanks to all of the friendly locals too, such a good crack so to speak!

The boys (and ) girls played Glasgow with great gusto and went down a storm.Hoped they would have played "Floyd" off the new album.Stonkin' swamp music.But not to be.Maybe next time.And a little longer set .Next time.

Superb gig last night in Glasgow although would have liked to have some more new stuff.
I seemed to enjoy it so much more than last year - although that might be because I had better seats and could see this time.

Did anyone happen to get a photo of Johnny with the Scottish flag?

Skynyrd was absolutely fantastic and hope they come back soon.
Saw them last year in Glasgow too.

What can I say ? Another great concert from the best band in the world ! I still cannot believe that I had to wait over 30 years to see Lynyrd Skynyrd live, and now I have seen them twice in 10 months !
The show was great ! A mixture of classic songs & new songs from God & Guns. Johnny Van Zant was great with the audience, what a show-man ! He related to his audience really well. It was great when he waved the Scottish flag during 'Freebird' & at the end of the concert.
Gary Rossington performed immaculately as always ,and gave fans at the front some great photo opportunities. I am sure the amplifiers were turned up to full volume for 'Freebird' as the whole hall was vibrating !!!
I cannot believe Rickey Medlocke recently celebrated his 60th birthday, I hope I have a fraction of his energy & flexibility ( and a very tiny bit of his guitar playing abilities ) before I reach his age !
' Sparky, Robert & Peter gave a great performance, great additions to the band.
I don't know how Michael can hit his drums so hard without damaging them ! But it looked & sounded great !
Dale & Carol looked & sounded beautiful as always !
Thanks to the roadies for running such a smooth show. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone.Thanks again for a brilliant show !
