The Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky has strong ties to Lynyrd Skynyrd. They’ve performed there countless times over the years, and recorded their live album, Live from Freedom Hall there.
One of the group’s most noteworthy concerts that took place in the venue was in 2008. As you would expect, Skynyrd sang all of their classic hits at the show, including the emotional tune “Tuesday’s Gone.”
“Tuesday’s Gone” was released on Skynyrd’s debut album, and was written by lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Allen Collins. It remains one of the band’s most popular songs to this day, and fans can be heard singing it proudly when Skynyrd performs it at a concert.
There was something about Skynyrd’s 2008 live performance of the song at Freedom Hall that we just can’t put a finger on. It was even more stunning than usual, and took on an almost dream-like quality.
You can tell that lead singer Johnny Van Zant was completely invested in the emotions behind the song, which is perhaps a large part of the reason why this performance was so breathtaking. The audience waved their hands back and forth in the air and swayed along to the music, completely lost in the moment.
You’ll get completely lost in this performance once you watch it in the video below. We can’t even find the words to describe how incredible it is, and you’ll likely be at a loss for words when you watch it as well.
This is one of the many reasons why Skynyrd is considered one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
