To those not following the Twitter or Facebook -- The boys were in Nashville today rehearsing for this weekend's shows. Adding new music to the set list. Didn't say how many new songs, but we'll find out this weekend I guess.

My next show is Atlanta 9/1 :)

assuming this gets posted ... my first comment here is.....

Holy Crap, I finally can post on an existing thread !!!!!!

Not sure if this dot com site is about to be a thing of the past because of all the issues here lately, perhaps if that is the case we should all (here in Skynyrd Nation) be told to migrate to the Skynyrd FB page from now on... I dunno !

@ Prez ... take care of y'rself and heal fast like ... I'd send ya my World Famous Jello Shots but they would be gone before I ever sent them to Ya !!!

@ to all the rest of the Frynds in Skynyrd Nation ... keep the updates, photos, vids, and setlists coming wherever you do post them, we'll find them eventually !!!!

It has become a lot of work to post here, I agree. A while back I started subscribing to posts to get the emails when people posted to certain long running threads, but that has stopped as well.

They need to update the database or software to fix the problems. Either that or find a new host.

I will do what I can to post links and such I find when I can. I get busy working with my rock star so I don't always get a chance to come over here (and when I do I can't always post, although I blame the disgruntled computer mice for eating the wires).

For those that are on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram - Johnny Colt, Peter Keys and whoever is posting on behalf of the band is keeping the information flowing on those services and a few behind the scenes things. Rickey pops in here every now and again. The FB and Twitter feeds are on the front page, although those are only limited to the last few posts.

I have pre-ordered the new album, the title track is available digitally from iTunes and Rhapsody and such. And that at least has been added to the set list, or will be soon, from what I've seen posted.

I get to see them again in Atlanta 9/1, looking for other dates I can get to as well. I recently saw ZZ Top here in Nashville and would so love to see them again with Skynyrd, but I can't get to any of the announced shows for the two of them together. I know they'd be killer shows.

I wish I could fix the problems to make posting and such easier (but I can't), I like comin' here and readin' all the posts when I have time. :)

Well, something's been fixed -- I've started getting email updates again...the ones I've already read but still that seems to be working again.

The front page board feed is not up to date from what I can tell.

For those that haven't heard, the Jackson, MI show the other night was cancelled. According to Skynyrd's Twitter/Facebook the promoter couldn't pay anyone that night.

Skynyrd is going to be a DTE and is making it up to fans with tickets to the DTE show in Detroit. (See cut-n-paste below of Tweet/Facebook)

said:Lynyrd Skynyrd ‏@Skynyrd

We had to cancel the show in Jackson, MI tonight. The promoter was unable to fulfill the contract and pay the band. We apologize to the fans

Facebook (Saturday):

said:Hey Skynyrd Nation! We have cancelled the show tonight in Jackson, MI due to unforeseen circumstances, out of our control. We were advised this afternoon that the promoter of the show was not going to be able to pay for the performance and also the vendors. We will be back in the Detroit area in September and hope to see you guys then.

Facebook (Today):

said:Skynyrd will be returning to Clarkston, MI at DTE Energy Music Theatre on September 21. The band has worked out a deal with DTE to offer complimentary tickets to any fans that purchased tickets to the Jackson, MI show that was cancelled this past weekend. Please email us, your verification of proof of purchase (credit card receipt, ticket stubs, etc) and your contact information to the following email address and we will give you tickets to the show. email: lynyrdskynyrdweb@gmail.com

I thought I'd pass it along in case anyone didn't know about it. :)

I also saw on Colt's Facebook that Southern Fried Magazine had a photographer at the Columbus show, so I'm guess they'll have a few good photos in the near future.

I'll post more when I see it or when I can.
