Lynyrd Skynyrd honored during In Demand concert tonight

In Demand's MOJO Network and World Productions present another installment of "Decades Rock Live," an innovative, critically acclaimed live concert series that features performances by celebrated artists from rock to soul who have influenced popular music over the last 50 years, as well as performances from some of today's hottest recording acts who have been inspired by these legends. The concert honoring Lynyrd Skynyrd is set to premiere on In Demand's MOJO Network on Friday, July 27th at 10:00 PM ET / July 28th, 29th and Aug 1st and will feature special guests including 3 Doors Down, Hank Williams Jr. and Bo Bice.
The show features Skynyrd teamed up with old friends and new, including Hank Williams, Jr., the alternative rock band 3 Doors Down, and American Idol runner-up Bo Bice.
Lynyrd Skynyrd was saluted by the guests, but lead singer Johnny Van Zant told us that one of the highlights of the show for him was getting to play on everyone else's songs: "The cool thing about this whole Decades Rock (Live) show was, is that we actually did 'Kryptonite' with 3 Doors Down, so Skynyrd actually played that, and I sang some of the lyrics and stuff like that with Brad (Arnold), and Bocephus's 'Born To Boogie,' I believe it was, and also Bo Bice's new single 'The Real Thing.' So it was kind of cool - it wasn't just all for us, you know?"
"This show was filmed using Sony Digital HDW 900 Camera's and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, for the ultimate audio/ video home theater experience", says Executive Producer, Barry Summers. "The song mixes are audiophile quality and music fans will truly enjoy the exceptional high resolution and sound on MOJO's HD Channel"
The music performances are augmented with special features, such as"Decades Confidential," exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with the spotlighted artists focusing on their career milestones and highlighting their newest releases, concert performances and other endeavors.
The"Decades Rock Live" show was taped at Trump Taj Mahal's Decades Rock Arena in Atlantic City, NJ. The new 2008 Decades Season will be produced live from the Las Vegas Strip. The series is produced by Barry Summers, Executive Producer for World Productions and Rock Fuel LLC.
