I was a teenage kid, when I last saw Skynyrd play here in Wales, at the Cardiff Capitol Theatre - 1975. Many years may have passed but the heart and soul of this great Southern Rock outfit is still there for all to see & hear. Original Muscle Shoals era members Gary & Rickey anchored the band to it's Skynyrd roots, whilst Johnny worked the Cardiff audience with his magical frontman skills. Excellent musicians, making up a real well oiled Skynyrd machine. I still can't stop smiling when I think about this latest gig. It was like being reunited with long lost family. Bring them back to Cardiff very, very soon .... it's been way too long.

Saw Skynyrd in Birmingham, UK last year and they were great. Saw them in Cardiff and they blew me, ny mate, and my 13yr old son away. I wish they had done a couple more tracks from God & Guns...

I really hope theymake it back to the UK soon.

I missed this great band in the Cardiff Capitol in 1975 so it's taken me another 35 years to make my 'Skynyrd debut' at the the CIA on March 5th.But it was well worth the wait with an absolutely superb performance coming from the band. It was a very emotional experience to finally catch up with them after all these years and the atmosphere was electric and it's little wonder why this band is held in such high esteem all over the world. But this particular night they were playing in my little country - Wales.Please get back whenever you can. SWEET HOME ABERPENNAR !
