That little ol' band from Texas, the legendary ZZ Top, have announced they will be heading to the UK this year to play two very special shows in London on 24th June and Manchester on 25th June.
ZZ Top have been together for over 40 years and never once has their line up changed. They are one of the only bands with a career span of this magnitude to be able to lay claim to this distinction and boy does it show. Not only were they inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, they were ranked number 44 on the VH1 '100 Greatest Artists Of Hard Rock'.

Since the 80s they have had a string of massive hits, spawning some of the best and most instantly recognisable singles within the Hard Rock genre – 'Gimme All Your Lovin', 'Sharp Dressed Man', 'La Grange' and 'Legs' to name but a few.
The band released their 15th studio album, 'La Futura', in September 2012 via American Recordings. The album, produced by Rick Rubin, was the band's first studio offering in nine years and was received with mass critical acclaim.
Miss these very special shows at your peril.
