The sharp-dressed men of legendary rock band ZZ Top are bringing their signature mix of Southern rock, blues and boogie, to the Norton Center this fall. Guitarist Billy F. Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard are currently touring the country in support of their first studio album in nine years, La Futura. ZZ TOP’s music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful, and 100% Texas American in derivation. They’ve been thrilling audiences since the group’s inception in 1969 and can lay the undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original members intact. Their unmistakable sound and attitude have garnered them legions of fans and cemented their status as cultural icons with popular hits including, “Sharp Dressed Man,” “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Gimme All your Lovin’,” and “Tube Snake Boogie.” These Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have sold millions of records over the course of their career, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons but, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. They’re real and they’re surreal and they’re ZZ Top.
