Lynyrd Skynyrd Set List????!?
September 09, 2010 6:24:19 PM UTC Post #11

@ RR ref Most die-hard Skynyrd fans that would travel anyhow are the older fans who have been following this band for years, and have the income and means to do this sort of thing.


Not all in that category have the income or means to. Especially in my age bracket and geographical area. A certain percentage of LS Nation might be able to afford that, but the majority I think are in the middle or lower class just trying to get by and can barely put enough aside to just catch a regular LS show. We've been hitched for 30 yrs and have never taken a vacation trip and barely have a pot to piss-in these days.

But I think the Branson thing is cool in theory. In the meantime I watch the DVDs. ;-)

The Allmans change their set up every night, not just during the beacon run. I've seen the brothers 6 times and have never heard the same set. Thats what makes the allmans the best band on tour from the late 60s-70s era, they play what songs they want and when they want. The way they mix it up is awesome. Skynyrd could learn from that. I bet the ticket sales would go through the roof if they would mix up the set. The medley HAS to go.

Allmans play for the fans not for NEW fans and it's not just about money for them. Dickey Betts says on the Live CD, "we are gonna play some songs, if you don't hear what you want, that's just tough" and they don't have to play Ramblin Man or Statesboro Blues each show.

Personally, I'd love if they mixed up the set list more. I was at the Shoreline show a couple of weeks ago, and they at least mixed in a couple of not-quite-as-played songs like Tuesday's Gone, Double Trouble, and Down South Jukin'. If I never heard "What's Your Name" live again I'd be fine with that, but what Skynyrd does with the setlist isn't any different than most classic rock bands that are still around. I saw .38 Special last week and I swear it was like watching the Live from Sturgis DVD from about 6 years ago all over again. Same songs in the same order with the same banter in between. At least Skynyrd changes the set a tiny bit from time to time. So ya, I agree with the sentiment but it's not just Skynyrd that does this.

Love all the old songs, it takes me back. I will always go to see them, would have liked to hear Still Unbroken or anything from Vicious Cycles . It seems like the shows are always too short no matter what they sing. Depression sets in at Whiskey Rock a Roller cause you know its almost over.

I'd just be happy to even get a chance to SEE them this Year ! So Far, no luck.
As for seeing them onnce and not having to go back....are you serious? lol It's ALL ABOUT the show.
NOBODY parties like us Lynyrd Fans do ! Same old Songs ? COOL ! I KNOW the words !! Let's ROCK !!

RIGHT ON RR!!!

Unfortunately they did play in my home state of MA this year... First time in 5++ years... So I headed North to NH & VT to see them... Roughly 3 hours to NH, stayed overnight then 4 hours to VT...

What made the weekend worth it was meeting up with members of Skynyrd Nation at the shows... Members who traveled from NY, Canada and yes one from across The Pond... It was a great time... And not to mention getting my "Freebird Banner" signed by Skynyrd!!!!

The set lists did change from pasts shows adding T for Texas and Same 'Ol Blues...

They can't make everyone happy so let it go... Enjoy the show because would you rather they not tour??? NOT ME!!!!

I'm not dead, at least not yet, Still Alone, Still Alive, STILL UNBROKEN....

Yeah the same set since 1977 the same speel what i don't get is they don't play anything from 1990 to present oh that one tune of the latest. How being in a band, and doing it like that doesn't burn you out don't know.
