MOSCOW, March 6. / Correspondent. ITAR-TASS George Perov /. American rock band, "Zee Zee Top" / ZZ Top / back to Russia. Legendary bearded present an anthology of his work and the new song on July 16 in the capital, and July 18 - in St. Petersburg.
As reported today correspondent. ITAR-TASS promoters of the famous trio, "the musicians will play all their hits including, as expected," Jesus Just Left Chicago "," Sharp Dressed Man "and" Tush ", and possibly, the material from the forthcoming this year - After a long silence - a new, yet unnamed, album. "
The "Zee Zee Top," was founded in 1969 in Houston / Texas /. In 1970, after some rearrangements, the guitarist and vocalist Billy Gibbons / Billy Gibbons / bassist and vocalist Dusty Hill / Dusty Hill / Frank Beard, and drummer / Frank Beard /. The composition of the rock band, which has since remained unchanged even once, is a rare example of stability. But "calling card" team has an impressive vegetation on the faces of Gibbons and Hill, while Beard, whose name, ironically, translates to English as a "beard" is limited to only a mustache.
On account of "Texas Three" - 14 studio albums, the last one, "Mescalero", was released in 2003. As has been noted by many music commentators, "Zee Zee Top," in spite of the unusual repertoire and the sound is not quite usual for a European audience, always be more than compensated for it at concerts, which invariably turn into sparkling extravaganza of rock 'n' roll spirit of the insane in 1970 's.
"Zee Zee Top," has twice been to Moscow - in 1996 and 2010. The third meeting with the capital account will be July 16 fans in the concert hall "Crocus City Hall," and July 18 the U.S. team will perform in St. Petersburg.

We have been gone for a while because, frankly, not much has been going on, and we have moved a lot of our info to Facebook.
However, with the new 2012 tour hopefully being announced soon, and a new (the last?) album being released in the next few months, things should heat up a bit.
Monday morning we expect the Houston Rodeo to announce their full entertainment lineup. They will be having at least one or two classic rock acts and we hope ZZ will be one of them. If so, we will be heading to Tejas for the show, and for any possible warmup shows.
Hopefully we will be able to set up a few extra-special things for those who want to join the festivities.
Stay tuned for the Newzz.

as providing further details on the new album, including song titles and
producers, to be released in 2011:
ZZ Top's new album is now finished, being mixed, and will be released
in the fall of 2011. Billy Gibbons tells Mojo magazine, "It sounds and
feels like Tres Hombres, with a few elements of the Eliminator period
thrown in. A pretty wide range, from basic blues to slightly more fancy
Songs recorded include "Flyin' High," "More Slower Blues." "Chartreuse"
and "Have A Little Mercy." The latter is, says Gibbons, inspired by
early B.B. King cuts.
The sessions have been executive-produced by Rick Rubin (Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Johnny Cash, Metallica, etc). Gibbons adds, "The thing about
Rick is he pushes the artists to spend more time reaching down deeper
than they normally would."
ZZ top recorded at the famous Shangri La Studios in Malibu with
engineeer Dave Sardy (Oasis, Jet). The trio then moved back to Texas, to
Foam Box Recordings in Houston, with long-time engineer Joe Hardy. "It
was the Sardy and Hardy party," said Gibbons.
A version of "Flyin' High," which is not confirmed for the album, has
already debuted: played en-route to the International Space Station on
Russia's Soyuz spacecraft. "We figured it'd be the perfect song to pass
along to the astronauts," said Gibbons.
Not every song will be as as radio-friendly as "Flyin' High", insists
Billy. "More Slower Blues" is "simply one chord, that never stops."
ZZ Top have yet to reveal the album's title and its final tracklisting.

Supposedly there is some sort of ZZ Top musical that is in development right now?
The rights have been sold and it is being worked on right now?
If this ever happens, remember, you heard it here first. If it never happens...well, then this post never happened.
