Rock icons ZZ Top and guest Cheap Trick will be in concert at The Amp on Wednesday, October 16 as ZZ Top brings their “50th Anniversary Tour” to St. Augustine.
ZZ Top still maintains the most consistently stable lineup in the history of rock music: Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. In 1969, Gibbons formed ZZ Top with drummer Beard and bass-guitarist Hill. Fifteen studio albums, 30 million record sales and 5 decades later, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas” is still going strong, playing timeless hits like “La Grange”, “Legs”, “Sharp Dressed Man”, and “Tush” to audiences the world over.
Combining a love for British guitar pop song craft with crunching power chords and a flair for the absurd, Cheap Trick provided the necessary links between ’60s pop, heavy metal, and punk. Led by guitarist Rick Nielsen, the band’s early albums were filled with highly melodic, well-written songs that drew equally from the crafted pop of the Beatles, the sonic assault of the Who, and the tongue-in-cheek musical eclecticism and humor of the Move.
Gates 5:30pm / Show 7:00pm
