In what will be their first concert in Ireland since 1985, iconic rock band ZZ Top have confirmed a date for Live At The Marquee Cork on June 27th. Since the release of the band’s debut studio album, ZZ Top have become known for their strong blues roots and humorous lyrical motifs. After more than four decades, ZZ Top are the only rock group to have maintained its original members who were awarded the Living Legend Award by the Classic Rock Roll of Honour 2012.
Formed in 1969, ZZ Top became one of America’s hottest groups. After two studio albums with strong Texan blues influences, the band broke in to the US top ten with their third LP release, ‘Tres Hombres’, backed by the John Lee Hooker-influenced boogie ‘La Grange’.
With an exhausting touring and recording work ethic, ZZ Top were pioneers of the use of synthesizers in Blues, most notably on ‘Eliminator’, (which contained ‘Legs’ – argubaly the band’s biggest hit single) and its worldwide smash hit follow up ‘Afterburner’.
ZZ Top remain one of the most distinctive American bands, and the only rock n’ roll group that can boast an unchanged line up over three decades.
ZZ Top consists of members Billy Gibbons on lead vocals and guitar, bassist and vocalist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard.
