ZZ Top 50th Anniversary Tour at Genesee Theatre

The beards. The hats. The dark sunglasses. ZZ Top began developing its boogie-blues rock sound in 1969 and never looked back. Now, everyone's favorite Rock & Roll Hall of Fame trio from Texas is on tour celebrating 50 years of incredible hits. The band's unmistakable, guitar-driven sound has led to 50 million albums sold worldwide, including multi-platinum LPs like Eliminator and Afterburner – thanks to MTV, which put the band's entertaining videos in heavy rotation throughout the '80s.

While they once described themselves as "the same three guys playing the same three chords," they are anything but. When they dig into their Texas-sized sound, they make working hard look so easy.

So grab a pair of cheap sunglasses and get ready to party because after five decades of great music, ZZ Top is still at the top of its game.

Opening the concert is blues prodigy Marquise Knox. When you hear him play, you get a sense that this is what the masters must have sounded like when they were young. But can a young man play the blues? If you listen to his song with the title asking the same question, you get your answer: Not only can I play 'em…I can sing 'em, too.
