Time To Get Excited!

50 years ago this summer, three musicians by the names of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard all came together to form what they still call that “little ol’ band from Texas”, but what we call one of the most influential rock/blues bands ever, ZZ Top. Yup, this legendary band has been around for 50 whole years, but it honestly feels like yesterday that we were asking our parents for ticket money to go and see then live.

It’s been 50 years, but they have NO intention of slowing down anytime soon. In fact, they’ve just announced that they’ll be embarking on a tour commemorating their 50th anniversary and they’re covering cities all throughout the U.S. And what’s even more is that they’re bringing Lynyrd Skynyrd and Cheap Trick with them!
