ZZ Top - La Futura

Hometown favorites "The Reverend" Billy GibbonsDusty Hill and Frank Beard, A.K.A. ZZ Top played the newly built home of the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball in Sugarland venue known as Constellation Field last night. As always they were magical while performing a fourteen song set filled with iconic blues rock songs you know and love.

The guys kicked off the set with one of my favorites, a cover of the Sam & Dave song I Thank You. The rest of the set included a couple of songs supporting the new album La Futura such as I Gotsta Get Paid and Chartruse. But mostly stuck to well known, popular songs, finishing off the set with Legs and exiting the stage. The fans wanted more, and after some chanting & cheering, the guys returned to the stage for a three song encore. Catching a live show of ZZ Top is a bucket list kind of item. And if it's not on your's. It should be!
