More Info

Fresh off the international stint of their 2017 Tonnage Tour, ZZ Top is coming to the Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore as part of the trio’s U.S. circuit on Sunday, October 15 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets range from $80 - $250, and are on sale now! “We’re looking forward to playing for so many good folks in some of our favorite locales,” says ZZ Top front man Billy Gibbons. “After four decades, we believe we’re beginning to get the hang of this whole rock and roll thing, so a mighty good time will be enjoyed by all.” The upcoming North American leg of ZZ Top’s tonnage tour includes nearly 50 shows in all. The trek got its name from a cover of the Tennessee Ernie Ford hit “Sixteen Tons” that the band played with rock guitar legend Jeff Beck, which was included on the group’s recent album, Live! Greatest Hits from Around the World.
ZZ Top: An American Blues-rock band formed in Houston, Texas, hold the distinction of being one of the few rock groups still composed of its original members; Billy Gibbons (guitar and vocals), Dusty Hill (bass guitar and vocals), and Frank Beard (drums). Nearly as well-known as their music is the group's appearance: Gibbons and Hill are always pictured wearing "Cheap Sunglasses," similar (if not matching) clothing, and their trademark chest-length beards while, perhaps ironically, Beard sports a mustache but not a beard. Their song lyrics often feature sexual innuendo and humor.

The origin of the band's name is derived from the name of blues master B.B. King. They wanted to call themselves Z.Z. King but sounded too similar to their blues legend hero. They figured that "King" was at the "top" so thus settled on ZZ Top.
