ZZ TOP are bringing The Tonnage Tour to Credit Union Place in Summerside on August 14. 

Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard have been together for 50 years of rock and blues, touring and recording in the studio. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.” The Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

ZZ TOP’s career retrospective The Very Baddest surfaced in 2014. It spans the entire course of their London, Warner Bros. and RCA years. Listeners can follow the evolution of the band’s sound from the early 70s into the 00s on either a 40-track double CD or a 20-track single CD. That same year Eagle Rock Entertainment released Live at Montreux 2013 on both Blu-ray and DVD formats, showcasing their live act, leaving no doubt as to why they have been such a huge concert draw for the last several decades. 2016 saw the release of ZZ TOP’s Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World album on Suretone, consisting of 15 songs recorded live in 13 cities across three continents.

ZZ TOP’s music is recognizable and eminently powerful. The band’s support for the blues is unwavering both as interpreters of the music and preservers of its legacy. They 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.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 23 at 10 am.
