It's always great to hear your favorite song live, because you can sing along and see what the notes look like as they float out of the instruments. See the music with this GrouponLive deal to see Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company at the First Niagara Pavilion. For $15, you get one G-Pass for general admission to the lawn on Friday, July 19, at 7 p.m. (up to a $35.50 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
As American as a Statue of Liberty on cinder blocks, Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd harness pride that has been ripening beneath the Mason-Dixon Line, regaling crowds with a catalog of hits permanently bricked into the national lexicon. From "Sweet Home Alabama" to "Free Bird," the memorable songs of Skynyrd have permeated generations of radio waves, homecoming parades, and rural moon landings. The band tours behind their most recent album, Last of a Dyin’ Breed, which sizzles with fresh cuts such as “Good Teacher” that sound just as rascally and familiar as fan favorites “That Smell” and “What’s Your Name.” Longstanding core members Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Rickey Medlocke lead the charge while welcoming former Black Crowes bassist Johnny Colt into the Skynryd family fold.
Although Bad Company is absolutely a British band, their catalog of classic-rock hits bleeds red, white, and blue. Throughout the mid-’70s, the group created a testosterone surplus with whoopee-making favorites such as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Ready for Love,” and “Feel Like Makin’ Love.” Helmed by singer-songwriter Paul Rodgers, whose triple-barrel voice could put hair on the chest of a sasquatch, the group brings down the hammer in a set of classic-rock staples.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
First Niagara Pavilion
Under the sprawling roof of First Niagara Pavilion, music greats such as Billy Joel, Rush, and Jimmy Buffett have all taken over the stage as fans throughout the amphitheater space watch, transfixed. Whether enjoying the show from the open-air pavilion or the verdant lawn, concertgoers demonstrate their love for the performers by dancing along to the music or holding up lighters engraved with the lead singer’s astrological sign.
