It cannot be overstated how big Lynyrd Skynyrd was in the ’70s, how Zeppelinlike their seemingly bottomless catalogue of FM radio staples and iconic riffs. Perhaps the most snakebit of all classic rock bands (no fewer than ten members have died) rolls on with a lineup featuring original member Gary Rossington and longtime members Johnny Van Zant and Rickey Medlocke. They’ve have earned the right to keep this venerable Southern rock institution filling arenas.
With another venerable (and snakebit) Southern rock band, the Marshall Tucker Band, on board, Lynyrd Skynyrd visit the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Friday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $47.50, $68, $83, $103 for reserved seats and $28 for Lawn seating, and are available at www.bethelwoodscenter.org. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is located at 200 Hurd Road in Bethel.
