Their signature song, Freebird, complete with  its fiery five-minute, three-guitar solo, is easily the most requested live song in existence.

With a catalogue of more 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide, and their beloved classic, American rock anthem Sweet Home Alabama, having more than two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.

The rock and roll powerhouse continually tours, and is heading to Kelowna to play at Prospera Place.
