Watch Lynyrd Skynyrd play "Free Bird" at their first concert back in 15 months

Vids 09/06/2021

Thanks to the pandemic, it's been a loooooong ass time since bands and artists could take the stage and perform (except here in NZ, of course).

But the bands are slowly starting to get back into the gig life, including southern rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd, who played their first show in 15 months over the weekend at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach.

And of course, they finished the show with "Free Bird", one of the most requested songs in the world.

And yeah we know, it's not the original Lynyrd Skynyrd line up, with founding guitarist Gary Rossington being joined by the 1000th version of the band - but it still sounds pretty fucking good if you ask us.

Watch above.
