Late model

There is absolutely no reason Lynyrd Skynyrd should be a nostalgia band. They have several albums including: Edge of Forever, Viscious Cycle, and God & Guns that are loaded with terrific material. So why is it that every time I see them live all they will play is eary model stuff? I saw them recently in Kansas City and Skynyrd Nation and Still Unbroken were a real treat but then it was right back to nostalgia stuff. Not even Red, White and Blue. WTF!!! They are not doing themselves justice as far as I'm concerned. I am not the only one that feels this way. The early stuff is great, it should just be mixed up a little with some of the newer stuff.

Sorry Mr. Shovel, I respectfully disagree with you.

Although I would like to hear Red White and Blue a little more frequently, It's my view that the older Lynyrd Skynyrd songs are what has solidified the bands base, which has the support of some the older fans as well as the newer generation of listeners. The old tunes are "classic" Skynyrd and I , for one would LOVE to hear more of them.

What I think is needed is a longer SET so the band could incorporate more of the newer music.

I think a two or three song encore (like the old days) would be more appropriate...

Just my two cents.

I was at the Kansas City show and thought it was great! (too short if anything)

Prez---Remember the old concerts, ( Not just LS ) when you could stand around with a lighter and keep yelling one more song, one more--- and the band would keep coming back? Ah, the good old days!

The Kansas City show was great! I agree 100%. Also, I'm not bitching about the older songs. I love them too. I'm just saying there is also great newer stuff that should be mixed in more. Everyone seems to be in agreement that a longer show would be the answer.

@prez. rusty: i remember seeing MTB at the Universal Amphiteater,,,,,,,,, prob tha' same concert i spoke about on saturday..... and they did a couple from each album, and the way they'd visualize it, a huge banner of tha particular song's album cover would drop behind 'em.................... corse thangs have changed. and "alot" of tyme & albums/cd's have come since......... it'd have ta be a "festival"........... like an all day'r.............. mmmmmmmmm........... not a bad idea.........

IF I LEAVE HERE TOMORROW, WOULD YOU STILL REMEMBER ME?

I was at the KC Show too-
loved it-to me the old songs are just AWESOME
Paul McCartney is coming in July-Guess what? he plays 98 percent BEATLES music.
And look how many albums he and wings did after the Beatles.
Nothing gets a crowd to it's feet faster than the first few riffs of sweet Home Alabama!
There is nothing more fun than having a big huge sing along with lynyrd concert !
Those Songs are the best-Sure,they didn't play a lot of God N guns but -I had an awesome time at that show and from the looks of it,so did everyone else.SKYNYRD NATION ! I think they play their old stuff for the same reason Paul Plays almost all Beatles songs-People WANT to hear them. I know I do.think about this-if they came out and played nothing but the new stuff,we'd have to say goodbye to a lot of GREAT Songs-like - FREEBIRD !
And remember OLDIES 95 put on that show.I heard a guy ask Sparky if Gary was still in the Band-that ought to speak volumes to you about their listening audience.I've been going to see Lynyrd for about 36 Years now, and I've never walked away disappointed,that's for sure.I love Lynyrd Skynyrd.

In the UK we were lucky enough to have them play here twice within a year,and i was fortunate enough to see them on 3 occasions and the set list was nearly the same in 2010 as it was in 2009 with the addition of god n guns and still unbroken.
And if they come back next year and do the same i will be just as excited as the 1st time i saw them.
Keep doing what ya do best and till the next time , god bless ya'll
