That little olï¿½ band from Texas ï¿½ the legendary ZZ Top have announced that they will be returning to the UK to play two very special shows with support from the one and only Steel Panther.
After an unforgettable main stage performance at this yearï¿½s Download, Rockï¿½s sharp dressed men will return to the UK this October to play two very special headline shows at Wembley Arena and Wolverhampton Civic Hall. ZZ Top have been together for 40 years and never once has their line up changed, they are one of the only bands with a career span of this magnitude to be able to lay claim to this distinction and boy does it show, not only were they inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, they were ranked number 44 on the VH1 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. Since the 80s they have had a string of massive hits, spawning some of the best and most instantly recognisable singles within the Hard Rock genre – Gimme All Your Loving, Sharp Dressed Man, La Grange and Legs to name but a few.
Support for these shows will come in the axe shredding, spandex wearing, spawn of your mum and the devil – Steel Panther who not only played a jaw dropping set at Download this year but also played An incredible sold out show at the 229 Club in London. Known for their outrageous stage presence and gargantuan guitar riffs, the band have been entertaining fans and scores of rock and entertainment VIPs with their raucous antics via L.A.’s longest running heavy metal show on the Sunset Strip for nearly a decade.
This is going to be one of THE rock shows of 2009 ï¿½ fact. Youï¿½d be seriously insane to miss it.
