A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this GrouponLive deal to see Tuesday’s Gone: Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute at The Fillmore Charlotte. For $6.50, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Friday, April 12, at 9 p.m. (up to a $13 value, including all fees). Doors open at 8 p.m. 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.
According to Tuesday’s Gone, there are two kinds of Skynyrd fans: those who saw the band in its ’70s glory and those who wish they saw the band in its ’70s glory. A Southern-fried peach of a tribute act, Tuesday’s Gone aims to please Lynyrd Skynyrd fans of all stripes and gives them an apropos excuse to yell “Free Bird.” With the husky vocals of singer Ryan King, the two-pronged guitar wrangling of Noble O’Rourke and John Pereksta, and the shuffling beats of Jason Patterson, the band meticulously embodies every iota of Skynyrd’s look, sound, and aura. Note by note, the band rebuilds monster hits such as “Gimme Three Steps,” “Saturday Night Special,” and the irresistible “Sweet Home Alabama” with surgical precision. They also delve into deep cuts such as “Gimme Back My Bullets” and “Down South Jukin’” for the true-blue Skynyrd fans.<p>
_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._
The Fillmore Charlotte
The Fillmore Charlotte models itself on the iconic San Francisco venue. Once a textile mill, the open space follows the original Fillmore’s signature decor, from red-oak hardwood floors to glimmering chandeliers to stadium-style tiers that result in pristine sightlines for attending fans.
