Over the weekend, I went to the Lynyrd Skynyrd/Bad Company concert at the Woodlands.
It was a fun time. On the way, I stopped off at B-52 Brewery, which is just off of 105 on the way to the Woodlands. They've got a nice outside area with tons of picnic tables, lots of trees for shade, and games for adults (or kids) to play...ping pong, corn hole, even a couple of Disc golf baskets!
As for the concert I sat on the lawn. We got there right around 6pm, (an hour after the gates opened), and the lawn was pretty full already.
The Outlaws opened the show, and did the 3 songs I was hoping they would... "there goes another love song", "Green Grass & High Tides" and "Ghostriders in the sky".
Then Bad Company took the stage. When they first started, Paul Rodgers voice sounded like he hadn't warmed up for the show....but after a couple of songs it sounded good.
They did all the songs I wanted to hear, in fact here's their setlist
1) Can't Get Enough 2) Live for the Music 3) Gone Gone Gone 4) Feel LIke Makin love 5) Honey child 6 Burnin' Sky 7) Run with the pack 8) Ready for Love 9) Movin' On 10) Shooting Star 11) Rock & Roll Fantasy ENCORE 12) Bad Company 13) Rock Steady
I was amazed at how loudly the crowd sang along with Rock Steady, definitely a fun concert.
Then...Lynyrd Skynyrd took the stage
Just like Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd did all the songs I wanted to hear. (When I go into a concert ,I usually choose 2-3 songs that I'd like to hear from the artist.
Here's Skynyrd's Setlist
1) Skynyrd Nation 2) What's your name 3) Double Trouble 4) Travelin' Man 5) That Smell 6) I know a little 7) Whiskey Rock-a-Roller 8) Saturday Night Special 9) The Ballad of Curtis Loew 10) Tuesday's Gone 11) Don't Ask me no questions 12) Simple Man 13) Gimme Three Steps 14) Call me the Breeze 15) Sweet home Alabama ENCORE 16) FreeBird
They dedicated "Simple Man" to the Military and those serving overseas, which I thought was cool. The song I was surprised they played was "Ballad of Curtist Loew"...which they introduced by saying they hadn't played it on tour in awhile.
Will it be Lynyrd Skynyrds last concert in the Houston area....time will tell. They sounded good, so I think they could keep on touring if they wanted to.
All and All a fun day
