When a rock band has been around as long as Lynyrd Skynyrd, anniversaries are definitely huge reasons to celebrate. In 2003, Skynyrd kicked off their massive Vicious Cycle Tour to support their album of the same name, but also to celebrate their 30th anniversary.
The setlist for each concert was jammed full of classic hits and some of the group's newer material, and the crowds loved every second of it. During a July 2003 appearance at the Amsouth Amphitheatre in Antioch, Tennessee, Skynyrd recorded the concert so an even wider audience could have the chance to see their show.
One of the songs that Skynyrd placed into their outstanding setlist that night was a track from their 1977 album, Street Survivors, called "I Know A Little." Written by late guitarist Steve Gaines, the song remains a treasured favorite among Skynyrd's die hard fans.
The fans' enthusiasm for the song was clear from the first note Skynyrd played during their concert in Antioch. As you watch the performance, you can almost feel the excitement in the room growing as the band's three guitarists make their way to the front of the stage to show off their wicked talents. Hughie Thomasson stuck out in particular, and he delivered a skilled guitar solo that would have made Steve proud.
Lead singer Johnny Van Zant kept the crowd pumped up with his energized delivery of the lyrics. The rest of the band also let loose a little and danced around on stage, which added further to the fun vibe of the performance.
This is one performance you simply have to see to believe, and you can in the video below!
