ZZ Topwith special guest Cheap Trick
Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top are celebrating their 50th year with a massive North American tour this summer. Kicking off on August 16, the tour will play coast to coast and border to border, including a stop in Huber Heights, OH at Rose Music Center on Tuesday, September 10. Cheap Trick will also join the tour on select dates as it snakes through the country into late October.
ZZ Top still maintains the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music: Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. In 1969, BFG formed ZZ Top with drummer Beard and bass-guitarist Hill, both from the Dallas. Fifteen studio albums, 30 million record sales and 5 decades later, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” is still going strong, playing timeless hits like “La Grange,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tush” to audiences the world over.
Billy Gibbons looked back at the history of the band, while also looking forward to the 50th Anniversary Tour dates. “It’s been five decades, and I think we’re starting to get pretty good at all this! The beards,” Frank excepted, “are perhaps a bit longer, yet nothing else has changed. We're keeping it that way.”
CHEAP TRICK, Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar) and Tom Petersson (bass guitar), are part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razorblade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock ‘n’ roll. Since the ‘70s, they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me” and “Surrender", CHEAP TRICK, now with drummer Daxx Nielsen, are a musical institution.
The Rockford, IL band is as vital today as ever, having released three records in the last three years - BANG ZOOM CRAZY...HELLO (2016), WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT! (2017) and CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS (2017) – and toured relentlessly to packed audiences around the world.
2016 saw CHEAP TRICK's long-awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The induction honored both the band and the pioneering sound that has earned them total record sales well in excess of 20 million featured appearances and more than 40 international Gold and Platinum certifications. 2017’s WE'RE ALL ALRIGHT! was yet another undisputed triumph for the band as the album's first single, "Long Time Coming," enjoyed an unprecedented run of 18 weeks at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.
