The Tonnage Tour comes at the heels of the release of ZZ Top’s ‘Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World‘ album. Consisting of 15 tracks recorded live in 13 cities across three continents, the album is notable for having two collaborations with guitar legend Jeff Beck that were recorded in his native London. One of these is a heavy rock version of ‘Sixteen Tons‘; Tennessee Ernie Ford’s #1 hit from 1956. ZZ Top’s take on the song is based on a mysterious YouTube video posted years ago that was falsely attributed to the band and Jeff Beck. What started as “a mega meta sorta thang” according to singer / guitarist Billy F Gibbons, has now flourished into a staple of ZZ Top’s live sets and the inspiration for the forthcoming tour’s title.
Billy Gibbons expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming tour, “It’s gonna be a good time,” he commented. “We’ve been at this long enough that we’re starting to get good. Come and see us; it’s gonna be loud and live.”
ZZ Top is notable for having the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music. Gibbons, bassist / singer Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard continue to impress audiences, drawing material from their 15 studio albums, with combined record sales of over 30 million units in the US alone. The band rocks on with timeless hits like ‘La Grange‘, ‘Legs‘, ‘Sharp Dressed Man‘ and ‘Tush‘ keeping generations of audiences coming back decade after decade.
