With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having sold over two million ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remain a cultural icon that appeals to multiple generations.

“In 2013, our amphitheater hosted a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band,” said Mayor Walker. “Now, in 2015, we have the real Lynyrd Skynyrd. That illustrates just how far we have come in a very short amount of time thanks to the strong support of our sponsors and the hard work of our Amphitheater Commission.”

“The people of Alton and the surrounding counties have proven there is a demand for bigger concerts at the amphitheater. We anticipate this concert to sell out, so I hope fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd act quickly to buy tickets,” continued Mayor Walker. “I can’t think of a better way to kick off Labor Day weekend!”

Tickets for this concert start at $42.50 and are released for sale May 4, 2015.
