That little ol’ band from Texas – the legendary ZZ Top have announced they will return to the UK for a one-off show at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on Wednesday 24th June, plus very special guests Thunder. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 13th February priced £47.50 (subject to per-ticket charge plus order processing fee) and are available from www.livenation.co.uk
ZZ Top have been together for over 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 Lovin’, ‘Sharp Dressed Man’, ‘La Grange’ and ‘Legs’ to name but a few.
Special guests for this one-off show comes from British rock legends Thunder, who over their 25 year career have had 18 Top 40 hit singles in the UK, a stack of gold albums around the world, a host of awards, and a fanbase of unswerving loyalty. These are accomplishments most bands can only dream of, but for Thunder these are merely stepping stones in a twenty-five career built on a brilliant “one dance, all dance” live show and truly epic songs.
