Sept. 4 ZZ Top continues to garner critical acclaim while enjoying mainstream success. Known for their gritty blues-tinged Southern rock and roll, their stylish and humorous music videos, and, most of all, their iconic chest-length beards, they've sold over 25 million albums worldwide. Hailing from Texas, ZZ Top quickly established themselves as the bad-boy outlaws of rock with a wicked sense of humor. The band still tours regularly, delivering captivating, no-frills concerts for fans who score tickets, though guitarist Billy Gibbons and bassist Dusty Hill do sometimes break out the fur-lined guitars they made famous. See them live at the Music Hall at Fair Park, 909 1st Ave. Information: www.liveatthemusichall.com.
