Their songs are laden with pop-culture references, sexual double entendres and the pursuit of a good time. The lyrics tout fast cars, fishnet stockings, sharp clothes, TV dinners and cheap sunglasses. Their band strives for a hard-rocking approach to the blues, superior musicianship, style and attitude.
Comcast Arena will welcome rock royalty when ZZ Top performs in November.
Since the group formed in 1969, ZZ Top has reached world-class status and ranked as one of America’s iconic bands.
Among the few rock bands with its original members, ZZ Top’s hallmark is consistency with the Gibbons-Hill-Beard trio unchanged and still going strong today, Comcast marketing coordinator Ryan Hart said.
ZZ Top reached peak commercial success in the 1970s and 1980s with hits like “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Legs,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Cheap Sunglasses.” These hits bear testament to the ZZ Top genius of being reverential about the blues but loose and funny about the subject matter.
ZZ Top performs at 8 p.m. Nov. 23 at Comcast Arena at Everett, 2000 Hewitt Ave., Everett. Tickets are $37 to $57. Call 425-322-2600 or go to www.comcastarena everett.com.
