Daniels and Messina Perform on Lynyrd Skynyrd Special
The night before the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots battle it out at Super Bowl XXXIX, Lynyrd Skynyrd will join family and friends for a live concert special from the band's hometown, Jacksonville, Fla. Partially borrowing its title from a Skynyrd classic, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Super Bowl Saturday Night Special, part of the Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Concert Series, will feature Charlie Daniels, Jo Dee Messina and 3 Doors Down. One of the other guests -- .38 Special's Donnie Van Zant -- is the brother of Lynyrd Skynyrd's current lead vocalist, Johnny Van Zant, and the band's late founder, Ronnie Van Zant. Donnie and Johnny Van Zant recently signed a country recording contract with Sony Music Nashville. Tickets to the Feb. 5 concert at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena are priced at $53 and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets. A portion of the ticket sales will go to tsunami relief.
