Practice makes perfect!
Skynyrd fans proved that they are a forced to be reckoned with – even during soundcheck! While prepping for their performance on ABC Network’s beloved morning show Good Morning America, Lynyrd Skynyrd got their fans hyped up the only way they know how – with a rockin’ performance.
Part of the TV show’s Summer Concert Series in 2008, Skynyrd traveled to New York to perform for fans in Central Park. Before they could go live, the band had to run through a few songs of their set for sound check. Fans knew they’d be there early, and so many showed up that it was almost as packed as the live taping would be!
Lead singer Johnny Van Zant kicked off the sound check with “Sweet Home Alabama” and proved that getting the crowd ready for a live show is just as important as the actual performance.
It wasn’t only Van Zant who was having fun on stage; Gary Rossington played the iconic guitar riff at the beginning of the song and Rickey Medlocke got down during the music break. We couldn’t take our eyes off of him!
The crowd was cheering the entire time, and got pretty rowdy for not even being the complete crowd! Watch their rockin’ sound check of “Sweet Home Alabama” below.
