Do you remember reading those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books as a child?
Your actions determined the outcome. If you made the right choice, the book offered a stellar ending. If you made the wrong choice, well, the outcome wasn't as great.
A Lynyrd Skynyrd concert is sort of like a "Choose Your Own Adventure."
"We love getting the crowd into it," singer Johnny Van Zant said in a phone interview. "I want the crowd to go home hoarse, too. We feed off the crowd. That's what this band's all about is feeding off the crowd."
So, when the 10,000-plus who bought tickets to watch Lynyrd Skynyrd at "Tuesday in the Park" at Artpark arrive tonight, the fate of the show will rest in their hands.
Van Zant is confident the crowd will be loud (and the band will be happy).
