Watch Blackberry Smoke & Marcus King Rip Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Tuesday’s Gone”

first_imgThe Marcus King Band and Blackberry Smoke were both in Nashville, Tennessee last weekend, where the two southern rock bands welcomed fans for a pair of performances at the Ryman Auditorium on February 22nd and 23rd. One of the highlights from Blackberry Smoke’s two-night run at the well-known Nashville venue came during the second night, when they welcomed Marcus King to the stage to help perform a cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s classic rock anthem, “Tuesday’s Gone”.The cover performance came 17 songs into the show towards the end of the band’s headlining set. The members of Blackberry Smoke also welcomed Kristian Bush guitarist Benji Shanks and Preston Holcomb to help play on the 1973 ballad. The crowd could be heard bursting into applause in approval of the band’s song choice, as there’s no doubt the southern spirit of Skynyrd still holds up strong in Nashville. King takes a pair of strong solos throughout the performance, with the first beginning at the 2:50-minute mark, and again at 5:35 mark into the video below.Blackberry Smoke with Marcus King – “Tuesday’s Gone” – 2/23/2019[Video: Eric Almy]King will continue his Carolina Confessions Tour into next month with scheduled stops at Garcia’s At The Cap on March 6th, followed by a recently-upgraded show at The Capitol Theatre two nights later on March 8th.
