Live In Concert: ZZ Top + Rockin’ Christmas Tunes
Catch some Texas bookie while you put tinsel on the tree Saturday night. We've got holiday hits from Heart and Brian Setzer as ZZ Top headlines Live In Concert.
It's 5,244 miles from Houston, Texas across the Atlantic Ocean to Montreux, Switzerland. Since rock and roll is an international language, ZZ Top found a rabid fan base at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2013. One hundred seventeen artists performed in a diverse lineup that included Green Day, Bonnie Raitt, Deep Purple, Kraftwerk, Sting and Prince. Listen this Saturday night and you'll hear Billy, Dusty and Frank play all the ZZ Top hits you love like "Gimme All Your Lovin'," "Sharp Dressed Man," "Got Me Under Pressure," and "Legs," plus a special cover of Jimi's "Foxey Lady."
The support acts this week have a definite holiday sound. Greg Lake performs his best known song "Lucky Man" and the iconic "I Believe in Father Christmas." Excerpts from a Heart show in December of 2013 include "Barracuda," their version of "Stairway to Heaven," and a special appearance by Sammy Hagar on the song "Santa's Goin' South." Finally, Brian Setzer swings by to...well, swing. The Brian Setzer Orchestra is is full-on throwback holiday mode, tearing through "Santa Claus is Back in Town," Jingle Bell Rock," "Blue Christmas," and a medley of "Stray Cat Strut/You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch."
Pour a Christmas cocktail and crank up a special holiday edition of Live in Concert headlined by ZZ Top this Saturday night at 8, exclusively on Kalamazoo's Rock Station, 107.7 RKR.
