American rock band ZZ top was founded in 1969 and has been producing music alongside stellar live performances for over 50 years now. Their lineup was consistent throughout this period until Dusty Hill’s death in 2021. ZZ Top gained widespread popularity by the mid-1970s and became a very famous band in North America. They were renowned for their amazing live performances, especially highlighted during the Worldwide Texas Tour in 1976. The tour’s success gave them their commercial breakthrough, and since then, they have been one of the most sought-after blues and Southern rock music outfits throughout the country.
ZZ Top’s style of playing live is what makes them so popular. Sly and humorous lyrics and consistent appearances with long beards and hats are what the fans dearly love. Despite heaps of performances over the years, they are still eager to take their music to their fans and perform live in a Raw, unfiltered manner. Their recent album, Raw, also promises a similar notion. It’s them returning to their roots and taking them to the times they used to play before the events had social hours, tour buses, etc. ZZ Top’s upcoming tour is a special occasion for them and their fans. The group will dearly remember their core member Dusty Hill and would be looking to pay tribute to his illustrious career.
