Since forming ZZ Top in 1969, the Texas blues-rocking trio of Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard have built a bedrock concert reputation. They tour often and with great success.

That string of sold-out shows helped push more than a dozen of ZZ Top's albums to platinum-selling status, topped by 1983's 'Eliminator,' which has sold more than 10 million copies. These Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have also released a series of well-received live recordings to go with their half-dozen compilation albums and more than 40 singles.

ZZ Top's most memorable tour may have been the million-selling Worldwide Texas Tour, held between 1976-77 and featuring visuals, plants and live animals associated with their their home state. More recent outings have included 2005's Whack Attack Tour, featuring a retro-garage themed set, and 2007's more stripped-down Hollywood Blues Tour.

Over the years, ZZ Top have appeared with Aerosmith (in 2009 and 2011), Guns N' Roses (2013) and Jeff Beck (2014-15), among others.
