Taking its visual and musical cues mainly from the early creations of the “Blues-Rock-Kings of Cool” of Dallas and Houston, – in those days ZZ didn’t sport those beards –, 22 TOP pays respectful tribute to the vast, legendary song material of the incomparable Trio Masters of Texas.
- have mercy! -
What we’re talking about is a full-fledged, no-holds-barred, live show with the fantastic, timeless music of the world’s longest-performing original band - ZZ TOP.
A musical sampling of ZZ’s past four decades certainly has to include the mega-hits of the ’80s that paved the way for the band’s break-through both in Europe and then a little later throughout the world. You’ll hear impressively authentic renderings not only of “Gimme All Your Lovin’”, “Sharp Dressed Men”, “TV Dinners”, but also ’70s blockbusters of the pre-synthesized era, such as “La Grange”, “Cheap Sunglasses” or “Just Got Paid”.
Everything almost exactly the way it was back in the good ol’ days of that “lil’ ol’ band from Texas” - - - except that 22 TOP’s show time is almost twice as long as the traditionally shorter performances of the US originals.
This is about the Music - Not them beards!
