Coming on November 1st is the soundtrack to Lynyrd's Skynyrd's latest concert film, titled Lynyrd Skynyrd: Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour – Lyve. The movie, which hits theaters for one night only on November 7th, features the band's 2018 hometown stadium performance at TIAA Bank Field — the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars — in Jacksonville, Florida, as well as “an intimate interview with the band about their experiences on tour and what performing together has meant to them.”
Skynyrd's sole surviving co-founder Gary Rossington said in a statement announcing the project: “We can’t wait to share this amazing night and performance with the Skynyrd Nation, especially those that weren’t able to be there that evening. The energy, passion and reaction to the music and band was something we will never forget.”
The 17-track collection features such Skynyrd staples as “What's Your Name,” “That Smell,” “Saturday Night Special,” “The Ballad of Curtis Loew,” “Tuesday's Gone,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” and “Freebird,” among others.
Frontman Johnny Van Zant told us that the best of Lynyrd Skynyrd's music has always seemed to defy genres: “They gave us a tag years ago of 'Southern Rock,' and to me I always thought that must mean it's 'Country Rock,' which is the truth, and around our house we were listening to Merle Haggard and George Jones, but we also watched Ed Sullivan and saw Elvis Presley and the Beatles, too, and loved all that stuff too, so there's no boundaries in music these days.”
The tracklisting for Lynyrd Skynyrd's Last Of The Street Survivors Farewell Tour – Lyve is: “Workin' For MCA,” “Skynyrd Nation,” “What's Your Name,” “That Smell,” “Travelin' Man,” “I Know A Little,” “The Needle And The Spoon,” “Saturday Night Special,” “Red White And Blue,” “The Ballad Of Curtis Loew,” “Tuesday's Gone,” “Don't Ask Me No Questions,” “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” and “Freebird.”
