Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd combine their Southern prowess and legion of hits as the chummy Rebels & Bandoleros Tour blazes into Tingley Coliseum. Legendary trio ZZ Top has scratched the boogying itch of fans for more than 40 years with slippery lyrics and blues-seared, buzz-sawing riffs. Unlike estranged trios such as Three Dog Night and Charlie's Angels, the impenetrable force of ZZ Top is still composed of the same rigid core of electric mercenaries: Les Paul–wielding guitarist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill, and historically beardless drummer Frank Beard. ZZ Top's adroit musical powers and Santa-shaming facial hair have made it a household name, boosting back-seat manufacturing revenues with classic rock staples such as "Legs" and "Tush." With a new album in the works and an Eliminator full of rocket fuel, ZZ Top's live show throbs with the thumping energy, guitar gymnastics, and sultry emotion of a motherly tiger tongue-bathing a baby electric fence.
As American as a Statue of Liberty on cinder blocks, Lynyrd Skynyrd plays from the heart, inspiring audiences to pledge allegiance to rock 'n' roll. The band harnesses pride that has been ripening beneath the Mason-Dixon Line, regaling crowds with a catalog of hits permanently bricked into the national lexicon. From "Sweet Home Alabama" to "Free Bird," the memorable songs of Skynyrd have permeated generations of radio waves, homecoming parades, and rural moon landings.
