Friday, October 10, 2008
– Trace Adkins and Lynyrd Skynyrd will be both opening and closing two different concerts with each other on the same night - New Year's Eve - in different concerts in different states and time zones.
Adkins and Lynyrd Skynyrd each perform in both Pikeville, Ky. and Nashville - switching cities and performances; opening the show in one city and closing it down in the other.
Tickets go on sale Saturday, Oct. 18. "For the past 12 years, we've been fortunate to have the biggest names in music celebrate New Year's Eve in Nashville," says Steve Moore, Senior Vice President of AEG Live. "To add the dynamic of having them be in two cities on one night will be an even more exciting way to create the biggest party of the year."
