Cheap Trick Rock Lynyrd Skynyrd Classic In New Video

(hennemusic) A new video has been released of Cheap Trick performing the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, "Gimme Back My Bullets". The performance appears on "One More For The Fans", a 2CD/DVD set featuring highlights from an all-star tribute concert to the southern rock icons held at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last November which is set to be released on July 24.

"Gimme Back My Bullets" was the title track to Skynyrd's fourth album of the same name. Issued in 1976, the album peaked at No. 20 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to Gold status for sales of more than 500,000 copies in the States.

The "One More For The Fans" event featured performances by Lynyrd Skynyrd as well as music legends and young talent, including Trace Adkins, Alabama, Gregg Allman, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Daniels, Peter Frampton, Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt and many more.

As part of the campaign to save the Fox Theatre from demolition, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their 1976 live album, "One More From The Road", at the landmark theatre; the title of the tribute concert and release was inspired by that legendary album's title.

AXS TV will premiere "Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More For The Fans" on Sunday, July 19 at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST. Watch the Cheap Trick performance clip here.
