ZZ Top plus special guest George Thorogood and the Destroyers

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, ZZ Top will play Papa Murphy’s Park at Cal Expo with very special guests George Thorogood and the Destroyers on July 26. Tickets range from $49.50 – $86.00 and includes entrance into the California State Fair on July 26.

ZZ Top holds the distinction of being one of the longest running bands with the original line-up. Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard reflect their Texas roots in everything with their non-stop rock and blues, resulting in over 50 million albums sold worldwide. “Yeah,” says Billy, guitarist extraordinaire, “we’re the same three guys, bashing out the same three chords.” With the release of each of their albums the band has explored new ground in terms of both their sonic approach and the material they’ve recorded. ZZ TOP is the same but always changing. Their latest release, Live – Greatest Hits From Around The World, is a reflection of their enduring presence as a top tier live attraction. It was recorded at locations on three continents and includes Jeff Beck guesting on the classic “Sixteen Tons.”

Over the course of the last four decades, George Thorogood, with his longtime legendary band, The Destroyers — Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) — has sold more than 15 million albums, released 16 studio albums – including six gold and two platinum discs — and performed more than 8,000 live shows. George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ catalog of hits include: “Who Do You Love?,” “I Drink Alone,” “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,” “Move It On Over,” “Get A Haircut,” and the anthemic “Bad To The Bone.” In 2017, George Thorogood’s released his first-ever solo album, PARTY OF ONE, which landed in the Top 10 on Soundscan’s “Top Current Blues Albums” chart, marking George’s fastest-selling album in nearly 20 years.
