Tribute Tour

Does anybody know the setlist for the early leg of the Tribute Tour in '87? I was at the Worcester Centrum on 10/8/87. Was a new fan at that point and knew some of the songs, but not all . . .

Couldn't find a setlist for the 8th. There's a partial one for the show in Worcester on the 7th, but I thought I'd give you a full one (they didn't really vary much from show-to-show). Here's what was played on the 10th in New Haven, CT:

Working For MCA
I Ain't The One
Saturday Night Special
The Needle + The Spoon
That Smell
I Know A little
Gimme Three Steps
Call Me The Breeze
Swamp Music
You Got That Right
What's Your Name
Gimme Back My Bullets
Simple Man
Sweet Home Alabama
Free Bird

Hope that helps!

@Firebird: That helps immensely! Thank you so much. I know they played Whiskey Rock-A-Roller, so the setlist might be a little different from New Haven. Like I said, I was a casual fan at the time and always regretted not being more prepared for that concert . . and always wished I could go back and see it over again. I guess they did their job though because by the time I saw them in Aug '88 in Mansfield, I was a full fledged "Junkie". When I saw them in Aug '88, they played Curtis Loew and Things Goin' On (didn't play Whiskey or Got That Right) . . . so they did mix it up a bit. I'll take that partial setlist from 10/7 if you're so inclined.

@Firebird: dadburnit, i wish i could play this "Freebird The Movie/Tribute Tour" DVD right now, cuz then i could get the set list from that, and see what the difference is! ya know.... pause it or select setlist........... man, then we'd know if there's a difference, cause the 1 you have posted, looks lke the "Freebird The Movie" setlist, but in a lil different order than what i have here...... as soon as i can tho, i'll post the other setlist!

@mcskynyrd: from what I know, that show that's on the tribute tour video is only partially shown. Here's the setlist for that night:

Workin' for MCA
I Ain't the One
Saturday Night Special
That Smell
Swamp Music
Guitar Jam/I Know a Little
Gimme Three Steps
Call Me the Breeze
Simple Man
Dixie/Sweet Home Alabama
Freebird

However, this is only what was re-broadcast later on Westwood One. I thought for sure I had a complete audience recording around here somewhere of that show, but I'll have to do some more looking. I'm fairly sure they played more, here's another example:

*EDIT* Of course, I just realized, I'm looking at setlists for the wrong year, so here's a full one from '87 (Detroit 10/3/87):

Intro Music
Workin' for MCA
I Ain't the One
Saturday Night Special
Needle and Spoon
That Smell
Guitar Jam/I Know a Little
3 Steps
Breeze
You Got that Right
What's Your Name
Bullets
Simple Man
Dixie/Sweet Home Alabama
Freebird

This is, most likely, what they played that night.

@Firebird: Thanks so much Firebird. You're the man. Nice Gibson. Is that you or AC? Never got to see the Wildman play live, unfortunately.

@Prince_Charming: Nope, that's Allens' Firebird in my sig picture. My Firebird is modded pretty close to his, though.
