ZZ Top And Jeff Beck At DTE Energy Music Theater
Talk about a killer combo platter.This August 27th, at DTE Energy Music Theater will see long time music legends and mutual admirers, ZZ Top and Jeff Beck on tour together for the first time.
Formatted with musical synergy in mind, stops along the touring route will offer fans a full Jeff Beck set, followed by a full ZZ Top set, with a finale that joins the English fret master with the Texas rockers for a collaboration each night of the tour.
ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, speaking on behalf of bandmates Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, noted that Jeff Beck has long been a source of musical inspiration from the time when Beck played with the Yardbirds, the seminal hard blues-based Brit rock band. Gibbons commented, “Ever since experiencing ‘Jeff’s Boogie,’ the prospect of performance with Jeff Beck on the deck brings us into focus with the curator of crunch.”
Likewise, Jeff Beck has been an enduring fan of ZZ Top, from even before their ascendance in popularity in the 70s and 80s. He remarked, “Ever since Eliminator I thought it would be great to play with ZZ Top,” and went on to declare Billy Gibbons, “The Professor of Grunge.”
