The beast is back... one of the longest serving groups in American rock, ZZ Top are back on the road promoting their new album La Futura, promising to thrill yet another generation with their classic riffs. Famous for their long beards, Texan Billy Gibbons formed the band all the way back in 1969. A long career with hits like "Gimme All Your Lovin'", "Pincushion", "She's Got Legs" and "Sharp-Dressed Man" has seen them experiment with blues, rock, pop, creating a unique, fun sound that has influenced generations of musicians. Their longevity finally saw them get the recognition they deserve, with an induction into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame being awarded to the band in 2004.
Their fifteenth and most recent studio album, La Futura, was released in 2012, is produced by Rick Rubin and showed that the band haven't lost any of their old swagger. The opening single, "I Gotsta Get Paid", was a big hit that went on to be featured in the blockbuster movie "Battleship". The album itself reached number 6 in the Billboard 100 and won wide critical acclaim, with a 4.5 star review in AllMusic that declared that the band were "starting to sound like themselves again".
Over 50 years of touring have honed ZZ Top's sound and now they're better and sharper than ever. The current tour, already in full swing, sees them taking in over 50 dates all across the USA and Canada, including plenty of dates in their home state of Canada. Fans can expect to be treated not just to killer tracks from their new record, but the classic licks that earned them their reputation and secured three platinum albums, two multi-platinum albums, one diamond album, and a place in the heart of all true rock-lovers across the world. Book quickly because you will not want to miss the chance to see these living legends up close and in the flesh.
