14th July 2017
ZZ Top

American rock trio ZZ TOP has been without peer as a touring unit over the years, having performed before millions of fans throughout the world. Their iconography - beards, cars, girls, and that magic keychain - seems to transcend all bounds of geography and language.

Formed in 1969, ZZ TOP aka “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact. The American rock band from Houston, Texas, consists of guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, bassist and co-lead vocalist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard. The band still has all three original members which is nowadays very uncommon. After almost 50 years, they’re still hitting the stage. On the 14th July 2017, they were back in Luxembourg as part of the ‘The Tonnage Tour’. The 19-song set was very tight and full of the best Rock’n’Roll. The crowd was ready and yelled the famous words of ‘The Ramones : “Hey Ho, Let’s Go!” The whole atmosphere was brilliant and so was ZZ TOP. Despite their age, they managed to make the Rockhal dance. The show wasn’t sold out but it was close to. With songs like ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’, ‘I Gotsta Get Paid’ and ‘Cheap Sunglasses’ the crowd was in good hands and shouted the lyrics with their favourite band.

The trio also covered songs from Jimi Hendrix, Robert Petway and other talented musicians. Unfortunately, they didn’t play the ‘Jailhouse Rock’ cover of Elvis Presley like they did on the previous dates of the tour.

The evening with ZZ TOP was a huge success for the Rockhal. A lot of people came to Esch sur Alzette to see these legends live on stage. Hope they will still give us joy in the future!
