Lynyrd Skynyrd @ New York State Fair in Syracuse, N.Y., Aug. 27 – “The show was energetic, yet intimate, and thanks to Van Zant’s repeated-but-personalized appeals to the crowd, there will never be a Lynyrd Skynyrd show exactly like this one again, like this afternoon was a secret shared among you and more than 25,000 of your friends.” – Jacob Pucci / The Syracuse  Post-Standard
