Purchase tickets here for the November 3 performance of Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Capital City Amphitheater at Cascades Park. Facts about the band include:
• Named after the Jacksonville high school PE teacher Leonard Skinner, known for his strict enforcement of the school’s hair code for the guys.
• More than 60 albums, $30 million in sales worldwide, and two million ringtone downloads to the song—you guessed it—“Sweet Home Alabama.”
• Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, and ranked No. 95 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” in 2004.
