Anywhere that Lynyrd Skynyrd travels, it seems that the crowd goes crazy for "Gimme Three Steps." But one crowd at the Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky got so hyped up for the song that Skynyrd isn't sure to forget them any time soon.
Skynyrd performed at Freedom Hall in 2008, and the concert was recorded and later released as a live album called Live from Freedom Hall. The album is one Skynyrd Nation holds close to its heart, since it was the last to have keyboardist Billy Powell and bassist Ean Evans, who both died in 2009.
Both Billy and Ean get plenty of screen time in the video of the performance. As we look back on the video and watch them play, we can't help but miss them and their amazing talents.
But the feelings associated with the video aren't all sad. In fact, it's actually a thrill to watch. A huge part of the reason why is because the crowd got all riled up before they started playing "Gimme Three Steps."
The crowd's energy is something that lead singer Johnny Van Zant capitalized on, as he called out to them and tried to get them even more excited. At one point, he asked who had been to a Skynyrd concert before, and he was met with a thunderous round of cheers.
Then the band moved into "Gimme Three Steps," and their performance was one of the most exhilarating we've ever seen them put on. Now it's time for you to see it with your own eyes, and you can in the video below!
