A concert recording from the only tour featuring Johnny and Donnie Van Zant will launch on July 1.

Red White and Blue: Live features the current Lynyrd Skynyrd frontman and former .38 Special vocalist performing hits from their respective bands and their collaborative project Van Zant at their show in Valdosta, Georgia, in 2006. It was recorded by Donnie’s longtime bandmate Larry Junstrom.

Donnie Van Zant says: “The plan was always to enjoy ourselves and have fun and this recording captures a moment when we had a great night.”

Red White and Blue: Live can be pre-ordered on Amazon.

Meanwhile, Lynyrd Skynyrd have scheduled a string of US dates throughout the coming months.
