Concert announcement: ZZ Top at the Montreal Bell Centre in November

September 17, 2012

ZZ Top will perform at the Bell Centre Nov. 7, promoter Evenko has announced.

Comfortingly, you can expect the same beards and the same guys: the trio has been playing its special brand of loud, grimy blues rock since 1969, with, amazingly, not one personnel change. As a result, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are the longest-running major rock band with the original lineup intact.

The latest ZZ Top disc, the impressive La Futura (click here to read our review), finds the boys sticking closely to the gritty basics of the formula that has defined their sound. Their unmistakeable sound has led more than a few fans and musicians to argue that Billy Gibbons is regularly robbed whenever he fails to turn up on lists 0f Top 10 all-time rock guitarists.

    They will also be preforming at Casino Rama on November 10th. I'm counting the days. Use to live to taking the top down on my 914 and blast their music all over the escarpment on my long drives circumventing physics on the winding roads.

    November 10th, YAMMA!
