Lynyrd Skynyrd Locks in Buffalo Chip Date to Celebrate 40 Years of Rock

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip® announces that Lynyrd Skynyrd has now locked in their performance night for the venue’s annual Motorcycle and Music Festival. The legendary Southern rock band will command the stage on Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014 during the Buffalo Chip’s nine-day concert series and motorcycle rally.

Lynyryd Skynyrd is often credited with the creation and popularization of the Southern rock music genre. The band blends together gritty blues-based rock and traditional country undertones, employing lyrics that celebrate the values, dreams and excesses of the Southern working-class.

“Lynyrd Skynyrd’s patriotic hits have now served as the anthem to multiple generations of freedom-loving campers who have stayed at the Chip over the past 33 years,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “It will be an amazing night as they continue to celebrate 40 years of performing the world’s most-loved rock n’ roll on the Chip’s stage.”

 

Fans can expect to hear plenty of Skynyrd’s universally known hit songs during their Buffalo Chip performance, including “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Saturday Night Special,” “You Got That Right,” “What’s Your Name,” “Smokestack Lightning,” “Simple Man,” “They Call Me the Breeze,” “Gimme Three Steps” and, of course, “Freebird.”
