The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia is a place where Lynyrd Skynyrd has played many times before. But Skynyrd shares a special connection with with the former movie palace perhaps more than any other venue. 

Back in the 70’s, the band recorded their live album One More from the Road at The Fox. Released in September 1976, the album was the only live one released by the pre-crash lineup of the band.

Years later, Skynyrd recorded another live album at The Fox, called One More for the Fans. This album featured covers of the group’s classic hits, performed by artists such as Trace Adkins and Alabama.

So you could definitely say that Skynyrd’s ties to The Fox run deep. Lead singer Johnny Van Zant appealed to these ties when the group performed at the venue in 1993, as he introduced one of Skynyrd’s fan favorites, “Tuesday’s Gone.”

From the second keyboardist Billy Powell started playing his opening part, the entire room was swept off of its feet. But it only got better as the performance continued, and before long Skynyrd had transported the whole crowd into rock and roll paradise.

Something this good deserves to be shared, which is why we’ve included the video of the performance below. It’s a dream to watch…so much in fact that you’ll want to play it again and again!

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd & Second Helping Live’ is available now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats – it’s the perfect gift for the Lynyrd Skynyrd fan in your life. Buy it here on Amazon!
