There is no other true American rock band quite like LYNYRD SKYNYRD. The iconic Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductees are some of the most influential legends of our time, and despite the band is saying goodbye to their live presentations they are getting ready to release their album Live in Atlantic City, a brand new live release which pays tribute to and celebrates its legacy with the help of three incredible artists.
The set documents SKYNYRD‘s June 23, 2006, concert at the Decades Rock Arena, a television studio and performance space inside the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J., and broadcast as part of VH1 Classic’s Decades Rock Live!series that year. LYNYRD SKYNYRD were joined by incredibly talented guest performers to create one uniquely magical night: 3 DOORS DOWN, who rose to international fame with their first single “Kryptonite”; HANK WILLIAMS JR. (yes, the son of the country music singer Hank Williams); and the American singer and songwriter BO BICE, who was a runner-up to Carrie Underwood in the fourth season of American Idol.
Newly mixed and mastered, Live in Atlantic City celebrates the legend that is Lynyrd Skynyrd in an energetic, 70-minute show. Each guest artist performs with LYNYRD SKYNYRD, and the show peaks with a performance of the band’s originals — “Call Me the Breeze” and of course “Sweet Home Alabama” – performed by LYNYRD SKYNYRD together with all of the special guests.
Live in Atlantic City will be released as CD + Blu-ray Digipak (limited first print run in fake leather), 2LP Gatefold+download, DVD, Blu-ray, and digital on September 21 through earMUSIC.
