This summer, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing back Lynyrd Skynyrd for a performance on Monday, Aug. 8. The band has become the standard bearer of classic American rock at the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling, carrying the torch of freedom and independence through their music. Lynyrd Skynyrd has created a legacy much larger than their 30 million albums sold–breaking down generational barriers and becoming a standard in motorcycle culture.
After nearly five decades of creating massive hits such as “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Gimme Three Steps” and “Freebird,” it’s no wonder Skynyrd is followed by a loyal legion of enthusiastic fans.
“Without a doubt Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the Buffalo Chip’s fans most favored bands,” said Rod Woodruff, Buffalo Chip President. “You typically see at least three generations of music and motorcycle fans, standing together and singing along to their songs. Their music is at the heart of American rock, just like the Buffalo Chip.”
The addition of Lynyrd Skynyrd makes four world-class performances announced for the Buffalo Chip’s upcoming 35th anniversary party:
Sunday, Aug. 7 – Kid Rock
Monday, Aug. 8 – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Thursday, Aug. 11 – Miranda Lambert
Saturday, Aug – “Weird Al” Yankovic
