Blues-rock legends ZZ Top return to Australia next April and their image has been as unchanging and memorable as their music. The legendary Texan trio has been together for more than 40 years and were inducted by Keith Richards into the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” in 2004. It’s a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 40 years of being on the road and in the studio.
ZZ Top are a solid touring unit and have performed before millions of fans around the world. Their iconography beards, cars, girls and that magic keychain seems to transcend all bounds of geography and language. They’ve been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons.
ZZ Top are genuine roots musicians. Billy F Gibbons is one of America’s finest blues guitarists while Dusty Hill on bass and Frank Beard on drums (ironically the only member without a beard) provide the ultimate rhythm section support.
Most famous for their hits Legs, Gimme All Your Lovin’ and Sharp Dressed Man, ZZ Top are sure to thrill their Australian fans with their sturdy American blues and rock style.
ZZ Top last toured Australia in 2000 and have sold more than 20 million records worldwide and achieved incredible chart success. Their 1983 album Eliminator was a multi-platinum smash in Australia and is “one of the greatest albums of the ’80s” according to Rolling Stone magazine.
Rose Tattoo and The Poor will also be appearing with ZZ Top .
