A one off UK date for the bearded Texans whilst they hop around the European festival circuit.

The ever reliable British rockers Thunder opened with another sturdy set, Danny Bowes raising voices from the off with the belting 'Dirty Love' while Luke Morley provided meaty riffs on the new tracks from the excellent 'Wonder Days'.

'Love Walked In' is pure class, striking right at the heart, before signing off with the jolly 'I Love You More Than Rock 'N Roll'. If there's any justice in this world then Thunder should be headlining at this venue.

Despite being on the road for two years in support of their latest album, 'La Futura', ZZ Top still had plenty of venom and bite as they kicked into 'Got Me Under Pressure'.

Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill are both powered by the same energy batteries and moved with each other in synchronised fashion as they layed out dirty bluesy riffs to 'Jesus Just Left Chicago' and the whiskey fuelled 'I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide'.

Gibbons and Hill really gel on the gritty 'I Gotta Get Paid' and on the cover of Hendrix's 'Foxy Lady'. The sharp dressed men rode out with 'Legs' complete with fluffy guitars before returning for a special four song encore and birthday cake presentation to guest Jeff Beck who traded licks on the bluesy 'Rough Boy', a cover of 'Sixteen Tons', 'La Grange' and a smokin' 'Tush'.
