I've been checking out the Setlists for Lynyrd Skynyrd's 2009 Concert Tour, (hope I did that link right) trying to figure out what songs they might play at my upcoming concert.

I noticed that when they played the God & Guns World Tour (Norway, Scotland, England, and Italy) they didn't play any songs off their new album (what's up with that)? It wasn't until June 30 (during their Rock N' Rebels Tour 2), that they began to play "Skynyrd Nation" and "Still Unbroken".

Each concert since then, they have played 15 Songs---including 2 or 3 off the new CD (last concert they also played "Simple Life" Each concert has begun with "Skynyrd Nation" and ended with "Free Bird", usually preceeded by "Sweet Home Alabama". Each concert setlist has also included "Simple Man", "Gimme Three Steps", "What's Your Name" (usually followed by "That Smell"). Rumor has it that they will now include "God & Guns" to the list.

So let me see what the Setlist looks like according to these previous shows:
1. Skynyrd Nation (usually #1)
3. Simple Life
4. What's Your Name (usually #4 or #5)
5. That Smell (usually follows previous song)
7. Simple Man (usually #7 or #8)
8. Still Unbroken (usually # 7 or #8)
11. Gimme Three Steps
14. Sweet Home Alabama (usually next to last)
15. Free Bird (usually last)

I think "Skynyrd Nation" is a good start up song, and I'm used to "Free Bird" being the last. I like "Still Unbroken" and "Simple Life" (although I would rather hear "Gifted Hands" ). I could really live without some of the "overplayed"/"listened to songs like "What's Your Name", "That Smell", and "Sweet Home Alabama".

If they continue to play a 15 song Setlist, then I will still have 6 more songs to Wish for:

"I Know A Little"
"Whiskey Rock a Roller"
"Down South Jukin"
"Honky Tonk Night Time Man"
"Needle and the Spoon"
"Gimme Back My Bullets"

There are 6 Concert Dates before mine---I will have to keep watching to see what these future Setlists reveal.

So what kind of Setlist are you hoping for at your upcoming concert?~~~Sherry

They're only playing 12 songs on this tour? That sounds like a really low number. I went to a Pearl Jam show recently and they did 30 songs with two encores.

Who is the opening act for LS on this current tour? I'm going to the November 13th show in P'cola.

I edited my original post because I said 12 songs (my mistake), I think they are doing at least 15. I too, would like to know who the opening act will be---anyone know??

Huh? Sounds like an interim evaluation from a Martian Supervisor. Are there fans from outer space registered with the club?
