Finally going to see Skynyrd for the first time in Bloomington,IL. Nov. 7.Bought the Street Survivors album with the original cover and was going to see them in Chicago but read about the plane crash in the paper the next day. Have seats in the right floor section row 12. Bought Deluxe version of God and Guns and love every song on it. Long live Skynyrd Nation!

I was going to go see them play the Chicago Stadium spring of '77,
but when I went to buy tickets, I was told the show was canceled.

I went traveling for awhile, and wound up in Idaho that October.
Years later, I found out that they played Soldier Stadium that summer.

And I know they were scheduled to play Chicago on the "Street Survivors" tour...
but sadly, it was not to be.

Have a great time at the Bloomington show, I'll be looking forward to your review.

The band is GREAT live but it is also the CROWD that makes the experience even more amazing! You'll see people of all ages from all walks of life. Have a wonderful time!!

Ain't nothing sweeter than a Southern girl!
