The Gang of Outlaws tour stirs up a sizzling brew of platinum-selling superstars, mixing the full-steam-ahead blues of ZZ Top, the driving alt-rock of 3 Doors Down, and the brawny country music of Gretchen Wilson. Legendary Texas trio and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top have scratched the boogying itch of fans for more than 40 years with their slippery lyrics and blues-seared, buzzsawing riffs. Unlike estranged trios such as Charlie's Angels, the impenetrable force of ZZ Top is still composed of the same rigid core of rock ‘n’ roll mercenaries: Les Paul–wielding guitarist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard, the historically beardless one. ZZ Top's adroit musical powers and Santa-shaming facial hair have made them a household name. With a new album in the works and an Eliminator full of rocket fuel, ZZ Top's live show throbs thumping energy while classic-rock staples such as "Legs" and "Tush" rile up audiences. Fellow outlaws 3 Doors Down flood the outdoors with hits such as “Kryptonite,” and Grammy-winning chanteuse Gretchen Wilson gets rowdy with hits such as “Redneck Woman” and “All Jacked Up.”
