Southern Rock doesn’t get any better than Lynyrd Skynyrd and all you have to do is listen to just one of their songs to understand what makes Lynyrd Skynyrd the best of the best. From the smooth, almost Bluesy sound of tunes like “Gimme Three Steps”, to the Country sound of “That Smell” to the rockin’ beat of “Free Bird”, the range of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s members in terms of musical diversity is amazing and expertly executed every time they strap on their guitar, step in front of a microphone, and sit down at the drums.

Fans of Blink 182 who were lucky enough to get tickets to this show are in for a definite treat, especially those who have never seen them live before. Blink 182 commonly plays their songs at a slightly faster tempo live and often replaces lyrics of lesser importance with jokes and other gags to the crowd’s approval. These guys know how to party, and if you aren’t there, you’re truly going to be missing out.
