After touring and recording for the past 44 years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will perform classic hits ranging from “Sharp Dressed Man,” “La Grange,” “Legs” and “Tush” along with “I Gotsta Get Paid” and other new material from La Futura, their latest album with producer Rick Rubin. “Same three guys, same three chords, ” sums up Billy F. Gibbons.
ZZ Top, formed in Houston, Texas in 1969, became a huge international touring act in the ‘70s and, astoundingly, were darlings of MTV in the ‘80s, going on to sell tens of millions of records. Their unique hybrid of dirty blues and hard rock, incorporating new sounds and technology, earned them induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 with Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones doing the honors. This summer the band will be releasing a comprehensive greatest hits collection entitled The Baddest of ZZ Top and they will be sharing touring bills with Jeff Beck. This fall the band will undertake a full slate of tour dates on their own.
